About the Journal

Journal of Hospital Infection

The Journal of Hospital Infection is the official scientific journal of the Society.

The Journal seeks to promote collaboration between the many disciplines in infection prevention and control in different countries resulting in multidisciplinary and international coverage of the latest developments in this crucial area. 

The Editor-in-Chief invites submissions of original papers, leading articles and correspondence in English, on all aspects of healthcare-associated infection as well as reviews on subjects of current interest.  You can make a submission online via the Journal website where instructions to authors can also be found. 

There are three special sections in the May issue of the JHI, dealing with surgical site infections, bloodstream infections, and the contribution of workwear and the patient’s immediate environment to nosocomial infections. The latter range from the risks associated with everyday items such as privacy curtains and badge lanyards to the experience of the British military with PPE in an Ebola virus disease treatment unit. As well as the special sections there are several other general articles of interest - do read the letter from Koivusalo et al on the ability of dogs to detect MRSA colonization.
