IDSA and Oxford Journals, a division of Oxford University Press, have announced a new publishing partnership for IDSA’s highly cited and internationally prestigious journals: Clinical Infectious Diseases (CID) and The Journal of Infectious Diseases (JID). Oxford Journals will assume publication of both journals on January 1, 2011.
Clinical Infectious Diseases, one of the most heavily cited journals in the field, publishes articles on infectious diseases, microbiology, hospital infections, public health, and HIV/AIDS. In 2009, this journal was named one of the "100 Most Influential Journals in Biology and Medicine" of the past 100 years by the Special Libraries Association. CID is edited by Sherwood L. Gorbach, MD, FIDSA.
Founded in 1904, The Journal of Infectious Diseases predates the Society’s formation in 1963, and is the premier publication for original research on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases; on the microbes that cause them; and on disorders of host immune mechanisms. JID is edited by Martin Hirsch, MD, FIDSA.
The two groups see IDSA’s twice monthly publications as an excellent fit with Oxford Journals’ strong medicine collection, which includes complementary titles in the field of infectious diseases as well as with OUP’s clinical book publishing program.
“Oxford’s academic orientation and its emphasis on scientific rigor complement the mission of IDSA,” said Richard J. Whitley, MD, FIDSA, president of IDSA. “Our two organizations are committed to the dissemination of scientific knowledge.”
