Infection Prevention in Practice is now live

Infection Prevention in Practice (IPIP) is an official journal of the Healthcare Infection Society and a sister journal to the Journal of Hospital Infection (JHI). Elsevier is proud to be the publisher for both titles. This low cost, fully open access online journal welcomes quality articles in the field of infection prevention and control, clinical microbiology and the global burden of infection in healthcare.

IPIP provides a comprehensive educational resource for all those working in the field of infectious disease prevention and treatment, through the sharing of local research studies, experiences, case reports, novel techniques, best practice and outbreak reports from clinical professionals globally, with a focus on developing countries.

The journal will initially be under the stewardship of Dr Jim Gray in conjunction with his role as Editor-in-Chief for the JHI, to ensure a co-ordinated approach. We are pleased that Dr Gemma Winzor has joined our Editorial team, alongside Dr Gray and Dr Nikunj Mahida. View our full editorial board.

Our first volume, launched March 2019, includes published articles that show the unique scope of IPIP. See here for more information.
