The University of Louisville Journal of Respiratory Infections is a peer-reviewed journal which is fully subsidized by the University of Louisville. This allows us the unique opportunity to have a journal that does not require a fee for readers (open access) and does not require payment on behalf of the authors. We strongly believe that submitting investigators should not be required to pay for processing articles that highlight their research.
The journal combines cutting-edge original research with state-of-the-art reviews dealing with all aspects of respiratory infections and therapeutic interventions.
The journal dissemination of research and education is greatly enhanced with a combination of text, audio, images, animation, video and interactive content.
See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.
