The Journal of Hospital Infection (JHI) is calling for original research, reviews and opinion on the topic of water and healthcare water systems, with a focus on wastewater, advance planning in new-build hospital projects, aerial transmission risks associated with water and innovations for mitigation.
As the NHS continues the planning and execution of new build hospitals and hospital buildings, the JHI plans to present research from around the world on innovations, new and existing risks to patients as staff, ways to mitigate existing challenges with healthcare water systems and best practices to consider when we plan future healthcare water systems.
Working with Guest Editor Dr Shanom Ali of the Environmental Research Laboratory at University College London Hospitals, United Kingdom, the JHI seeks to showcase this research for an international readership in a Special Edition dedicated to the topic, to be published in Spring 2024.

The JHI particularly seeks work addressing the following aspects of healthcare water systems:
Water and wastewater systems
Engineering and infrastructure
If you have any healthcare water system-related research that does not fall within any of these categories we might still be interested in publishing it; we would encourage you to contact the Editorial Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss any research or ideas that you have.
The JHI is the editorially independent scientific publication of the Healthcare Infection Society (HIS). The aim of the Journal is to publish high-quality research and information relating to infection prevention and control that is relevant to an international audience.
The JHI’s instructions for authors are available on the journal website (Guide for Authors), and authors are kindly asked to follow them. When you come to submit your article, please note that you are responding to this call for papers in your cover letter to ensure your work is held for the special edition.
