ISID's publications seek to strengthen the specialty of Infectious Diseases globally, support the ongoing professional development of Infectious Disease practitioners and improve clinical practice. We advance these goals through our online, open-access Guide to Infection Control in the Healthcare Setting; and our peer-reviewed, open access journal - the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.

A Guide to Infection Control in the Healthcare Setting

A free, online resource on the principles and interventions needed to reduce the rate of healthcare associated infections.

The science of infection prevention has grown in importance over the last 30 years and is in constant evolution. Written and edited by international leaders and front-line practitioners from around the world, the Guide summarizes the most up to date principles, interventions, and strategies for maximizing the reduction of healthcare-associated infections. The chapters are intended to facilitate the implementation of effective infection prevention and control measures across different resource levels; improve quality of care; minimize risk; save lives; and reduce costs.

International Journal of Infectious Diseases

The International Journal of Infectious Diseases (IJID) is the official publication of ISID.

It offers open access to peer-reviewed infectious diseases research, case reports, and clinical trial updates covering epidemiology, clinical diagnosis, treatment, and control of infectious diseases. In addition, it seeks to enhance the reader’s understanding of the medical and cultural factors that affect infectious diseases and provides insight into their prevention, treatment, and management.

An open access publishing fee payable by research authors or research funders, enables the Journal to be published online each month for no subscription fee, making it available to infectious disease researchers and clinicians throughout the world, irrespective of their location or resources.
