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.
