Oxford Journals, a division of Oxford University Press, and the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), a leading professional society, have announced a new publishing partnership for IDSA's highly cited and internationally prestigious journals: Clinical Infectious Diseases (CID) and The Journal of Infectious Diseases (JID). Oxford Journals will assume publication of both journals from 1st of January, 2011.
IDSA's twice monthly publications are an excellent fit with Oxford Journals' strong medicine collection, which includes complementary titles in the field of infectious diseases, as well as with OUP's clinical book publishing program.
"Oxford University Press's academic orientation and its emphasis on scientific rigor complement the mission of IDSA," said Richard J. Whitley, MD, FIDSA, president of IDSA. "Our two organizations are committed to the dissemination of scientific knowledge."
Clinical Infectious Diseases, one of the most heavily cited journals in the field, publishes articles on infectious diseases, microbiology, hospital infections, public health, and HIV/AIDS. In 2009 this journal was named one of the "100 Most Influential Journals in Biology and Medicine" of the past 100 years by the Special Libraries Association. CID is edited by Sherwood L. Gorbach, MD, FIDSA.
Founded in 1904, the Journal of Infectious Diseases predates the Society's formation in 1963 and is the premier publication for original research on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases; on the microbes that cause them; and on disorders of host immune mechanisms. JID is edited by Martin S. Hirsch, MD, FIDSA.
Nigel Portwood, Chief Executive of Oxford University Press, commented: "The IDSA journals are highly prestigious and internationally renowned so the IDSA quite rightly require their publishing partner to deliver the best services available in the industry. The fact that OUP has been chosen to fulfil that requirement is something I and my colleagues are very excited and proud about."
