Journal History

Pathogens and Immunity was founded in 2015 and published its first issue in 2016. Why is another journal needed?  The Editorial Board of Pathogens and Immunity are productive researchers who are dismayed by the increasing complexity of requirements for submission of research manuscripts to top level biomedical science journals.  The Board recognizes that a year or more often passes between the date of first journal submission and date of manuscript publication. The policies and procedures of Pathogens and Immunity have been designed to address these problems.
