Launching of the World Journal of Clinical Infectious Diseases (WJCID) could have been possible due to efforts of the publisher, members of the editorial board, all the authors and definitely our readers. I congratulate everyone for making it possible. Pathogenic organisms of various origin cause infectious diseases often resulting in symptomatic illness. WJCID is an open access peer reviewed journal that will be published bimonthly. WJCID will primarily emphasize on topics relevant to infections affecting human and animal health yet articles from other diseases and relevant issues will also be encouraged. WJCID welcomes articles from either basic or applied research in different disciplines like Epidemiology of communicable and non-communicable infections, Immunology and Genetics. WJCID covers topics like Host-Parasites interactions, Vector biology, development of advanced tools for diagnosis, genetic susceptibility to diseases, and disease prevention and vector control. WJCID will work as an important resource of basic and applied research in the field of infections. It is widely recommended that clinical implementations of basic and applied research be encouraged for the benefit to each stream. So again I welcome everyone and assure that WJCID will be a great platform where you can feel free to share your valuable results, discuss new hypothesis and research problems and update yourself with the most recent advancements made in the field of infections.
