Aims and Scope: Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control

Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control aims to be a global forum for all those working on the prevention, diagnostic and treatment of health-care associated infections and antimicrobial resistance development in all health-care settings. Infection Control wishes to cover a broad spectrum of 'preeminent practices' and 'best available data' to the 'best interventional and translational research' and innovative (technical) developments in the field of infection control.

Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control believes that a better understanding of the factors contributing to the development and spread of multi-drug resistance pathogens, possibilities to prevent transmission and infections and insight into the difference between developed countries and countries with limited resources are key-factors to find future solutions. Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control needs to combine best practices, experience and latest research results from around the globe to overcome the challenge posed by healthcare-associated infections. Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control welcomes all manuscripts related to the filed of HAI prevention and infection control. Some examples are listed below:

  • Prevention of health-care associated infection in hospitals.
  • Infection control and antimicrobial-resistance in high-risk settings (e.g. ICUs).
  • HAI prevention and antimicrobial-resistance in special settings e.g. long-term care facilities.
  • Infection control and antimicrobial-resistance in community settings.
  • Special problems with Infection control and antimicrobial-resistance in resource-limited countries.
