FOCUS & SCOPE
Journal of Immunological Sciences is a multidisciplinary, open access, peer-reviewed, non-profit journal, that publishes papers of the highest quality and significance in all areas of immunology. It aims at playing an essential role in monitoring advances in the various fields of immunology, bringing together the results in a readable and lucid form. It publishes high-impact, cutting-edge research papers for immunologists, physicians and researchers interested in immunology. It provides a novel way to disseminate the latest findings in basic and translational research in Immunology and to facilitate communication, both among scientists as well as the community at large. The Journal of Immunological Sciences welcomes submissions that explore novel ideas and approaches, as long as they are underpinned by conventional scientific practice and present falsifiable hypothesis that is tested with empirical methods and evidences.
This journal publishes research articles relevant to (but not limited) immune system and its molecular, functional, histological, developmental, cellular aspects. It also focuses on Clinical and Human Immunology, Immunotherapy and Vaccines, Immunomodulation, Immunodeficiency, Systems Immunology, immunity in ageing, signalling and apoptosis; antigen presentation, inflammation, tumour immunology, Immunochemistry, Immunodermatology, immunohematology, mucosal immunity, neuroimmunology, Immunoproteomics, immunogenetics, immunotoxicology, immunotolerance, Transplantation Immunology, hypersensitivity, autoimmunity, histocompatibility, Immune Regulation, developmental immunology, Imaging, Mathematical modelling, fertility immunology, pregnancy immunology, immunocontraception, endometriosis. This journal also publishes articles relevant to Novel Immunological Methods and immuno-techniques which are instrumental tools in establishing the data supporting the research findings and diagnostic investigations. The essential criteria for publication will be clarity, experimental soundness and novelty. Priority is given to work that provides deep fundamental insight into the workings of the immune system and present results contradictory to current accepted thinking or ideas divergent from actual dogmas which are based on solid experimental findings.
It will publish Original Research Articles, Brief Reports, Reviews, Commentaries and Meeting Reports in the areas of immunologic research. The journal aims at maintaining scholarly communication ecosystem for the transfer of expert knowledge synthesized from the exponentially expanding corpus of scientific literature to scholars and society. To create this impactful content, we bring together expert Editorial Committees in each covered discipline and facilitate meetings where members can discuss trends in each field and select relevant topics for review. The journal encourages authors to submit their research articles, review articles, case reports, short communications that fall within the scope of the journal, editorials and letter to the editors. The journal places its highest priority on fair and rapid review and speedy publication. With the aim of promoting effective and accurate scientific information, an expert panel of referees constitutes the backbone of the peer-review process in evaluating the quality and content of manuscripts submitted for publication. Edited and authored by the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research. While mechanistic insight, which helps us better understand the workings of the immune system is of great importance for us, we are also interested in studies that contain thought-provoking immunological findings. It is dedicated to synthesizing and integrating knowledge for the progress of immunology and the benefit of society. This broad perspective makes it an invaluable information source for researchers, lecturers and students alike.
