The Journal of Clinical Immunology is an international journal that publishes high impact papers in the area of human immunology that explore the diagnosis, pathogenesis, prognosis, or treatment of human diseases. The Journal is particularly focused on primary immunodeficiencies and related diseases. These include inborn errors of immunity, in the broad sense of the term, their underlying genotypes, and their diverse phenotypes, including infection, malignancy, allergy, auto-inflammation, and autoimmunity. We consider a wide range of studies in this area, ranging from genetic discovery, clinical description, immunologic assessment, diagnostic approach, prognosis evaluation, and treatment intervention. This well-established journal publishes articles on basic, translational, and clinical studies including relevant animal models and case reports of general significance.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time. Please see this letter from the Editors-in-Chief for more information. 

  • CME Credit

    In collaboration with the Clinical Immunology Society, the Journal offers the opportunity to obtain CME credit.
