Journal Infection Ecology and Epidemiology (IEE)

Aim & Scope

Infection Ecology & Epidemiology is a peer-reviewed Open Access journal affiliated with the One Health Sweden. It aims to be a truly international forum for the free exchange of original, cross-disciplinary, high quality papers from multiple medical and ecological disciplines, describing exactly what happens at the interface between wild and domestic animals, and humans. As one of the first Open Access journals in this multidisciplinary field, Infection Ecology & Epidemiology aspires to become a first-option source of information on infectious disease ecology and epidemiology. Combating zoonoses requires an approach to infection ecology and epidemiology whereby researchers must take into account the "One Health" concepts. Approximately 70% of recently emerged or re-emerging infections affecting humans and animals are transmitted from animals to humans, or vice versa. The dynamics of the spread of these infectious diseases is complex since most zoonotic microorganisms can occur in more than one host species, and move between humans, domestic animals, wildlife and environmental matrices. In addition, antiviral and antibiotic compounds consumed by humans or domestic animals are distributed to the environment by discharge of treated sewage water or from production facilities, thereby inducing resistance development in both pathogenic and commensal bacteria and viruses. Infection Ecology & Epidemiology sets out to enhance our knowledge of the complexity of these zoonotic infections and therewith contribute to a better understanding of their prevention and cure. The IEE network was founded in 2010 by Uppsala University in collaboration with the Swedish National Veterinary Institute (SVA, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and the Linnaeus University. The aim of the project is to integrate the research capabilities of several universities and governmental organizations and thereby establish a sustainable intellectual platform for veterinarians, physicians, molecular biologists, ecologists and environmental chemists with an interest in zoonotic infections to interact and create synergies. Topics Infection Ecology & Epidemiology aims to stimulate inter-disciplinary collaborations dealing with a range of subjects, from the plethora of zoonotic infections in humans, over diseases with implication in wildlife ecology, to advanced virology and bacteriology. The journal specifically welcomes papers from studies where researchers from multiple medical and ecological disciplines are collaborating so as to increase our knowledge of the emergence, spread and effect of new and re-emerged infectious diseases in humans, domestic animals and wildlife. Main areas of interest include, but are not limited to: Zoonotic microbioorganisms, Vector borne infections, Gastrointestinal pathogens, Antimicrobial resistance, Zoonotic microbioorganisms in changing environment.
