The aim of IPIP is to provide a comprehensive, fully open access resource for all those working in the field of infection and infectious disease prevention and treatment worldwide.
In accordance with the charitable aims of the Healthcare Infection Society, this fully open access online journal will maximise the discoverability of latest research related to all aspects of infection. Fair article processing charges ensure publication in IPIP is also increasingly accessible to those authors (irrespective of funding) who wish to publish in a high quality, independently peer-reviewed journal.
IPIP welcomes high quality articles (in the form of local research studies, experiences, case reports, novel techniques, best practice and outbreak reports) in the field of infection prevention and control, that will influence clinical best practice and reduce the global burden of infection in healthcare. Research should relate to HCAIs and provide practical, applicable information to medical professionals and all facilities caring for patients with communicable diseases worldwide. We are particularly interested in papers that provide unique insight into the challenges of preventing infections in developing countries.
We encourage submissions in the following areas:
