ESCMID launches a new, fully open-access journal

We are pleased to announce the launch of CMI Communications, an interdisciplinary forum for knowledge exchange via the rapid publication of peer-reviewed original articles and reviews on basic, translational, clinical aspects of microbiology, infectious diseases & control, immunology, epidemiology, and public health.

Driven by the new Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Angela Huttner, the journal will publish articles that are of practical use to infectious disease clinicians and clinical microbiologists - and thus to their patients.

The first call for articles is now open!
