About This Journal
The University of Louisville Journal of Respiratory Infections (JRI) is a peer-reviewed, open access medical journal focusing on the wide range of medical disciplines related to infections of the respiratory tract.
The journal is owned by the University of Louisville (UofL) and operated by the UofL Division of Infectious Diseases and the UofL Libraries. UofL provides complete editorial freedom to the Editorial Board of the JRI and provides no specific funding for the JRI.
This journal does not charge article processing/publishing charges (APCs) or submission charges. We strongly believe that investigators submitting significant research should not be required to pay for article processing fees.
The JRI uses bepress for online manuscript submission and publishes online articles continuously throughout the year. Accepted journal articles are assigned DOIs, deposited in Global LOCKSS for permanent archiving, and compiled into yearly volumes.
Original research, case reports, review articles, methodologies, and study protocols are accepted following a single-blind peer review by at least two external reviewers and approval by the Editors-in-Chief. Other article types are reviewed by the Editors-in-Chief alone. External reviewers include members of the editorial board, section editors, and invited reviewers.
