There are more than 25 currently published journals that deal with clinical
aspects of infectious disease, including such prestigious titles as Clinical Infectious Diseases, Infectious Disease Clinics of North
America, Journal of Infectious Disease, and Scandinavian
Journal of Infectious Diseases. The Lancet Publishing Group launched
this new journal in August 2001, and it is a welcome addition to the literature,
especially given the growing worldwide focus on the prevention and control
of these diseases.
