Microbiology & Infectious Diseases - European Medical Journal

Aims and Scope

EMJ Microbiology & Infectious Diseases is an open access, peer-reviewed eJournal committed to publishing the highest quality medical research concerning all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis, and management of infectious diseases in humans.

The journal is published annually, six weeks after the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID), and features highlights from this congress, alongside interviews with experts in the field, reviews of abstracts presented at the congress, as well as in-depth features on congress sessions. The journal also covers advances within the clinical and pharmaceutical arenas by publishing sponsored content from congress symposia, which is of high educational value for healthcare professionals. This undergoes rigorous quality control checks by independent experts and the in-house editorial team.

EMJ Microbiology & Infectious Diseases also publishes peer-reviewed research papers, review articles, and case reports in the field. In addition, the journal welcomes the submission of features and opinion pieces intended to create a discussion around key topics in the field and broaden readers’ professional interests. The journal is managed by a dedicated editorial team that adheres to a rigorous double-blind peer-review process, maintains high standards of copy editing, and ensures timely publication.

EMJ Microbiology & Infectious Diseases endeavours to increase knowledge, stimulate discussion, and contribute to a better understanding of infectious diseases.  Our focus is on research that is relevant to all healthcare professionals in the field. We do not publish veterinary science papers or laboratory studies not linked to patient outcomes. We have a particular interest in topical studies that advance knowledge and inform of coming trends affecting clinical practice in microbiology and infectious diseases.
