Call for papers: Learning from local excellence

Have you implemented a quality improvement locally in the field of infection prevention?

Infection Prevention in Practice (IPIP) is calling for comprehensive quality improvement reports.

We are aiming to publish reports that comply with SQUIRE standards for quality improvement reporting in healthcare. Submitted manuscripts would be subject to IPIP's usual editorial and peer review processes, but accepted reports would be eligible for an open access fee waiver and would be compiled into a special section of the journal showcasing the work.

Ideally, quality improvement reports are no longer than 2500 words, and would include up to five figures or tables. There is a 250-word limit for the structured abstract. A maximum of 20 references may be provided.

Deadline for submissions: 31 July 2022. Find out more here.
