GMS Hygiene and Infection Control
Published/Hosted by Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF).
Infection prevention and control is involved into the complete spectrum of medical treatment, diagnostics, and preventive aspects. Specifically healthcare associated infections are a global challenge for the 21st century. The journal GMS Hygiene and Infection Control is designed to foster both understanding and practice in the field of infection control with the focus on the prevention of healthcare associated infections and related aspects of hospital hygiene. The open access e-journal provides a forum for continuing exchange of information and opinions through contributions from scholars, professionals, policymakers, and others involved in infection control. GMS Hygiene and Infection Control and its international editorial board welcome articles from the entire field of infection prevention and control, ensuring a publication channel for important information on even unusual and selective aspects of this subject. Concurrently, “GMS Hygiene and Infection Control” wishes to serve as platform for epidemiologic and other data relevant for infection control aspects in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland, which are sometimes hardly accepted in other international journals due to their unique or highly selective topics. GMS Hygiene and Infection Control is published within German Medical Science (GMS), the publication portal of the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF), developed in cooperation with the German Institute of Medical Documentation and Information (DIMDI) and ZB MED – Information Centre for Life Sciences. The journal further serves as official publication organ of the German Society of Hospital Hygiene (DGKH).
