AJIC: Call for articles

The Editorial Office of the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC) invites APIC members to submit manuscripts for consideration in this journal.  AJIC covers key topics and issues in infection control and epidemiology. Infection control professionals, including physicians, nurses, and epidemiologists, rely on AJIC for peer-reviewed articles covering clinical topics as well as original research. As the official publication of APIC,  AJIC is the foremost resource on infection control, epidemiology, infectious diseases, quality management, occupational health, and disease prevention. AJIC also publishes infection control guidelines from APIC and the CDC. AJIC is included in Index Medicus and CINAHL.

Of particular interest are manuscripts focusing on the core competencies for infection prevention and control, including: leadership and program management; performance improvement and implementation science; infection prevention and control; and technology.

The Editorial Office of AJIC encourages new authors to submit manuscripts on the above topics and can provide a mentor from its editorial board to assist first time authors with the process.
