Opportunities for Peer Review - Healthcare Infection
Healthcare Infection (HI), the official international peer reviewed journal of the ACIPC is seeking to increase its peer reviewer database. This is in response to considerable growth in recent times and our vision of being recognised as the premier infection control journal in the Asia Pacific region. The journal is indexed in several databases and is currently undergoing review for MEDLINE indexation. Submissions to the journal, citations and downloads of HI articles are increasing, demonstrating the increasing role HI plays in promulgating high-quality, evidence-based research to policy makers, clinicians and academics.
