Scope

The primary aim of Infection is to be a forum for the presentation and discussion of clinically relevant information on infectious diseases for readers and contributors from all over the world. Articles deal with the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases in the outpatient as well as in the inpatient setting. Public health issues of local, regional or international importance related to infectious diseases are featured, as well as progress and problems in hospital epidemiology. The main contents of the journal include original articles describing results of research projects, brief reports on new observations that enhance the knowledge of clinicians, and state-of-the-art reviews on topics that are relevant to physicians diagnosing or treating infectious diseases. Case reports describing new infectious etiologies or clinical manifestations are also welcome. Finally, the correspondence section is open to readers who want to respond to articles published in Infection or to succinctly present information to the general readership. Because infectious diseases often present with characteristic clinical pictures that can be seen upon inspection and because imaging and microscopy are an essential part of infection diagnosis, the “Images” section of Infection was created to focus on high-quality pictures with short texts in abstract form.

SJR

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
