Journal overview

Infection Ecology & Epidemiology is an open access journal that focuses on the complexity of zoonotic infections, their prevention and cure.

Infection Ecology & Epidemiology is published in cooperation with The Infection Ecology and Epidemiology Network (IEE). The IEE network was founded in 2010 by Uppsala University in collaboration with the Swedish National Veterinary Institute (SVA), the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Linnaeus University. The journal also shares an affiliation with One Health Sweden.

Infection Ecology & Epidemiology aims to integrate the research capabilities of several universities and governmental organizations and to establish a sustainable, intellectual platform for veterinarians, physicians, molecular biologists, ecologists and environmental chemists with an interest in zoonotic infections to interact and create synergies.

Infection Ecology & Epidemiology sets out to enhance knowledge from multiple medical and ecological disciplines on the interface between wild and domestic animals, and humans. The journal acknowledges that combating zoonoses requires an approach to infection ecology and epidemiology whereby researchers must consider ‘One Health’ concepts.

Infection Ecology & Epidemiology focuses on a range of subjects, from the plethora of zoonotic infections in humans, over diseases with implications in wildlife ecology, to advanced virology and bacteriology. The journal welcomes papers from studies where researchers from multiple medical and ecological disciplines are collaborating to increase our knowledge of the emergence, spread and effect of new and re-emerged infectious diseases in humans, domestic animals and wildlife. The journal’s main areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Zoonotic
  • Vector-borne infections
  • Gastrointestinal pathogens
  • Antimicrobial resistance
  • Zoonotic microbioorganisms in changing environment

Infection Ecology & Epidemiology accepts original research articles, review articles, case studies, reports, debate pieces and short communications addressing promising research. Proceedings from meetings on infection ecology and epidemiology may be published as supplements.

The journal operates a double-blind peer review policy.

All articles will be made freely and permanently available online through gold open access publication.
