International Journal of Vaccines and Immunity

About IJVI

International Journal of Vaccines and Immunity ISSN 4912-4293 is the pre-eminent, open access journal that publishes significant research in all areas of vaccines and immunity.  The journal publishes original research articles, short communications, reviews, commentaries and letters to the editors.

Aims and Scope

  • To publish papers that report the most important advances in immunology research. The range of subjects includes, but is not limited to, immune cell development and senescence, signal transduction, gene regulation, innate and adaptive immunity, autoimmunity, infectious disease, allergy and asthma, transplantation, and tumor immunology. We also encourage the submission of manuscripts that pertain to related areas of research but have broad implications for immune responses in all aspects of human and experimental animal biology.
  • The journal emphasizes studies that demonstrate genetic, genomic or functional variation in the immune system as well as assists our understanding of how the basic control over the immune system varies between individuals both in health and disease.
  • To improve the transparency of reporting and the reproducibility of published results, focusing on elements of methodological information that are frequently poorly reported.
  • To publish papers dealing with all aspects within the area of innate immunity, including evolution of the immune system, molecular biology of cells involved in innate immunity, pattern recognition and signals of ‘danger’, microbial corruption, host response and inflammation, mucosal immunity, complement and coagulation, sepsis and septic shock, molecular genomics, and development of immunotherapies.
  • To publish findings in all areas of experimental immunology, including innate and adaptive immunity, inflammation, host defense, clinical immunology, autoimmunity and more.
  • To publish research articles and reviews of general interest in the entire discipline of immunology.
  • The journal was founded on the principle that advances in molecular and cellular immunology have brought immunology to a point at which a journal of high quality should be able to provide a unifying intellectual view, but the mandate is not restricted to any particular level of analysis or to any particular type of system.
  • To publish articles indicating a breadth of interest extending beyond the formal definition of immunology, and into all systems that contribute to, or interact with, the immune system of the organism. Submitted articles are reviewed for both technical excellence and general interest, and those that are accepted are published immediately.
  • The area of interest is defined broadly beyond the obvious characterization of immune genes and cells, effectively including any and all research that contributes to understanding of infection and host defenses. Practical consequences for clinical work are taken into account equally with advances in fundamental understanding.
