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

Do you think other infection prevention and control professionals would be interested in your project?

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.

IPIP is the editorially-independent open access publication of the Healthcare Infection Society (HIS). IPIP provides a comprehensive resource for all those working in the field of infection prevention and control (IPC) of healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs).

The aim of the journal is to publish high-standard research, reviews, reports and commentary relating to IPC that are relevant to an international audience. We evaluate manuscripts on the basis of methodological rigor, strong reporting of results and high ethical standards, regardless of perceived novelty.

IPIP is fully indexed in PubMed Central, Scopus and the Directory of Open Access Journals.

IPIP’s instructions for authors are available on the journal website (Guide for authors), and authors are kindly asked to follow them. When you come to submit your article, please note that you are responding to this call for papers in you cover letter to ensure a fee waiver is applied.

Deadline for submissions: 31 July 2022
