Focus and Scope

About the Journal

The International Journal of Pathogens is a peer-reviewed open-access journal launched in 2024  that focuses on publishing high-quality original research, reviews, and perspectives in the field of pathogens and infectious diseases. The journal aims to provide a platform for researchers, clinicians, and other professionals working in this field to publish and disseminate their work. The International Journal of Pathogens welcomes submissions of original research articles, reviews, case reports, and perspectives from all over the world. The journal follows a rigorous peer-review process to ensure the quality and relevance of the articles published. The target audience for the International Journal of Pathogens includes researchers, clinicians, public health professionals, policymakers, and other professionals working in the field of infectious diseases. The journal aims to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information, as well as to promote collaboration and networking among professionals in the field.
