A new, online journal has been launched, containing open access articles relating to infectious diseases.
Infectious Diseases of Poverty ( http://www.idpjournal.com ) has been launched at the Second Global Symposium on Health Systems Research on 2nd November, in partnership with the National Institute of Parasitic Diseases (NIPD), China CDC.
The journal will contain a range of aricles relating to infectious diseases in poor regions of the world, including health systems research. All articles are peer reviewed, and translated into six languages, thanks to an agreement with Translators without Borders, who also work with the Global Health Network.
The Editor-in-Chief Professor Xiao-Nong Zhou, Director of the National Institute of Parasitic Diseases, China CDC, writes: "The Infectious Diseases of Poverty journal aims to build on the 'One health, One world' approach recommended by the Global Report for Research on Infectious Diseases of Poverty ( http://www.who.int/tdr/publications/global_report/en/index.html ), which was published in April by TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases. The new journal welcomes all groups who are engaged in research on infectious diseases - scientific investigators, academic societies, physicians, decision makers, research funders, patient advocacy groups, educational organizations. Welcome and join us!"
