New Content ItemRecently, tablet computers are increasingly being used in hospital patient care ,and are often colonized with important human pathogens, while the impact of disinfection interventions remains controversial. 

This study by Frey et al. investigated the change in colonizing bacteria on tablet computers before and after the introduction of a mandatory twice daily tablet disinfection intervention. Read more here for what they found.

Guidance - Peer Review

Here, we compile some handy tips for the community, from early-career researchers to clinicians on peer review. It may seem like a basic part of a reseacher’s role, but many basic and clinical researchers don’t get much training in the cornerstone of this life cycle of modern scientific literature. 

Assessment by expert peers improves the quality of manuscripts and provides a level of control in scientific communication.

We've put together a short guide (Read more).

Call for Papers

Edited by Sarah Tschudin-Sutter

We are proud to announce that Impact of the environment on healthcare-associated infections is open for submissions, specifically original works and reviews focusing on the role of the environment in promoting healthcare-associated infections and specific interventions targeting the hospital environment are welcome.

Submit to the series here.

Aims and scope

Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control is a global forum for all those working on the prevention, diagnostic and treatment of health-care associated infections and antimicrobial resistance development in all health-care settings. The journal covers a broad spectrum of preeminent practices and best available data to the top interventional and translational research, and innovative developments in the field of infection control.

Expedited Peer Review

We are pleased to highlight that Antimicrobial Resistance & Infection Control  recognises that scientifically sound, high quality manuscripts are often turned away from broad-scope "high-impact" journals based on the issue of "general interest." The journal will consider rapid publication of such manuscripts - if they are submitted together with the original peer reviewer reports, letter of rejection, and a rebuttal. Please also mention this in your cover letter.

Please note that additional peer review may be necessary and the final decision will be made by the Editor.

Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control is pleased to announce a new article collection entitled Society guidelines for best practices. Our aim is to offer the journal’s associated societies the opportunity to publish their guidelines in order to make them available for a broader audience.
