Oxford University Press (OUP) will partner with the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS) to publish the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (JPIDS).
This new quarterly journal will be edited by Theoklis E. Zaoutis, MD, MSCE, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and will be dedicated to perinatal, childhood, and adolescent infectious diseases. It will be a high-quality source of original research articles, clinical trial reports, guidelines, and topical reviews in an essential publication that will span from bench to bedside.
PIDS President, Janet A. Englund, MD, Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Washington said: “The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society is very excited about our new journal that will reflect the broad interests of our society and our society’s goal of treating and preventing infections in children. We look forward to sharing our research, guidelines, and innovation with colleagues both in this country and internationally.”
The title will further strengthen OUP’s publishing program in the area of infectious diseases, dedicating particular attention to the interests and needs of the pediatric infectious diseases community.
Niko Pfund, President of Oxford University Press, Inc., said: “This partnership reflects OUP’s continued desire to build alliances with leading societies and will enable us to offer a complete infectious disease research resource via our journal collection. We look forward to working with the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society to create a strong new title in this subject area.”
JPIDS will publish its first print and online issue in March 2012. All members of PIDS will receive an online and print subscription to JPIDS as part of their membership. There will be an option for subscribers to purchase it with the Infectious Diseases Society of America journals, Journal of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Infectious Diseases, which also are published by OUP.
