    Special Issue on Infection Prevention and Control


    Surgical infections occur because of a breakdown of the equilibrium that exists between organisms and the host. This may be due to a breach in a protective surface, changes in host resistance, or particular characteristics of the organism. It is a major health care concern.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring infection prevention and control. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Risk factors of infection
    • Acute infection
    • Nosocomial infections
    • Antimicrobial therapy
    • Blood-borne viral infections
    • Infection control precautions
    • Personal protective equipment
    • Respiratory protection
    • Infection control assessment
    • Antimicrobial resistance


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal at Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Infection Prevention and Control” should be selected during your submission.
