We know that preparing a research paper takes time. We are researchers, too.

We know that submission processes to many journals are burdensome and frustrating. How do we know? We publish, too.

Are you looking for a streamlined process to have your research critically reviewed and published? We were, too! And so, we launched Pathogens and Immunity. 

Pathogens and Immunity is a newer open access journal, publishing original research with relevance to human health and disease. We look for submissions that are interesting, insightful, and provide new perspectives or ask new questions about microbes and/or host defenses. 

What’s different about this journal? We make it easy.

  • There are no charges to submit or publish
  • Submission online takes less than 5 minutes
  • Manuscripts can be submitted in any journal format

You can publish faster, too. Our median time between submission and editorial decision is less than 3 weeks.

If you have a manuscript ready, give us a try:  MAKE A SUBMISSION.
