Call for Papers

Spatial inequality, infectious diseases and disease control

Spatial inequality, infectious diseases and disease control

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that focus on emerging infectious diseases in humans and animals and brings together research that investigates the relationship between spatial inequalities and the impact and prevalence of infectious diseases. 

Currently open for submissions


Aims and scope

Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials considers good quality, novel and international research of more than regional relevance. 

Research must include epidemiological and/or clinical information about isolates, and the journal covers the clinical microbiology of bacteria, viruses and fungi, as well as antimicrobial treatment of infectious diseases.

Tim McHugh, Editor-in-Chief

Professor McHugh leads the UCL Centre for Clinical Microbiology (CCM). Located at the Royal Free Hospital, CCM aims to improve the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases and contributes in the areas of antimicrobial resistance, infection in patients with immunosuppression and hospital acquired infection. Prof McHugh has a particular focus on respiratory infection and CCM has activities in all stages of the TB drug development pathway with projects on evaluation of new compounds as well as supporting the laboratory aspects of clinical trials. An underlying theme is the development of biomarkers of treatment outcome, whether transcriptomic analysis of in vitro treatments or the more complex picture of monitoring outcome in patients.
