Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology: Volume 40 (Issue 1 to Issues 4)
The Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology (IJMM) stands as a comprehensive resource in the field of medical microbiology and infectious diseases, welcoming contributions that range from foundational research to clinical trials. It is a versatile platform that covers a multitude of subfields in microbiology.
Focus and Scope:
IJMM provides extensive coverage in various domains, including:
- Antimicrobial Susceptibility and Stewardship: Focused on surveillance of antimicrobial susceptibility in a variety of organisms, exploring mechanisms of action, resistance, interactions, and the role and effectiveness of antimicrobial stewardship programs in hospitals.
- Clinical Microbiology: It delves deep into understanding the pathogenesis, virulence factors, clinical presentation, novel diagnostic methods, therapeutic options, and community health aspects regarding infectious diseases.
- Emerging Infectious Diseases: It explores the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of newly emerging or resurging infections in humans, including zoonoses.
- Medical Mycology and Mycobacteriology: This area is concentrated on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, drug susceptibility, therapy, immunology, vaccine development, and public health aspects of diseases in humans caused by fungi and mycobacteria.
- Hospital Infection: Analysis, control, and prevention of various hospital-associated infections and novel methodologies to track them are covered under this domain.
- Molecular Studies: It applies phenotypic, genotypic, and molecular techniques to study virulence, AMR genes, and microbial epidemiology.
- Microbiome and Microbial Ecology in Health: This explores the normal microbiome and dysbiosis; structure of microbial ecosystems, their interaction with the environment, host, and each other, and their impact on health and disease treatment.
- Immunology: The journal also addresses basic research in immunity and host cell responses to infections.
- Vaccinology and Therapeutics: It emphasizes research in identifying vaccine targets, novel drug discovery, and therapeutics.
