Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
The section seeks to attract manuscripts on all aspects of pediatric infectious diseases, ranging from infections within the community to hospital-acquired infections. Papers reporting innovative approaches, integrating a multidisciplinary approach to infection prevention, early detection and therapy are part of the main focus of this section.
The section seeks to attract manuscripts on all aspects of pediatric infectious diseases, ranging from infections within the community to hospital-acquired infections. Papers reporting innovative approaches, integrating a multidisciplinary approach to infection prevention, early detection and therapy are part of the main focus of this section. Next to that, we also welcome papers regarding the underlying mechanisms, immunology and microbiology of pediatric infectious diseases, together with epidemiological studies and basic science studies that have a clear potential to lead to useful clinical advances.
Even though excellent scientific journals and websites are already available in this subspecialty, our journal- aims to promote publication of original, up-to date quality papers thanks to a supportive editorial policy and an interactive network between its enthusiastic, just renewed Editorial Board.
More specifically the topics to be covered include:
· Host/pathogens interactions
· Nutrition and infection
· HIV infection
· Infections in developing countries
· Infections in the neonate
· Infections in the immunocompromized host
· Emerging pathogens
· Hospital-acquired infections and infection control measures
· New therapeutic agents
· Public health aspects of Pediatric Infectious Diseases
To offer relevant data and discussion on the field, different kinds of publications will be encouraged, mainly:
- Original researchs (including from bench to bedside/translational medicine)
- Instructive case reports
- Review and perspective articles on the state of the art
Indexed in: PubMed, PubMed Central, Web of Science, Google Scholar, DOAJ, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), Science Citation Index Expanded, CLOCKSS
PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Pediatric Infectious Diseases welcomes submissions of the following article types: Clinical Study Protocol, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Pediatric Infectious Diseases, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Pediatric Infectious Diseases will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Pediatrics.
