Dear Researchers and Colleagues,
Infectious diseases continue to cause significant morbidity and mortality in all age groups globally, with a disproportionately higher impact in sub-Saharan Africa and other resource-constrained settings.

In the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to catastrophic consequences in our societies. Thankfully, researchers and scientists worldwide have awoken to the reality of addressing infectious disease threats through evidence-based preventive practices and countermeasures.

The need to rapidly disseminate emerging research findings in infectious diseases has never been so acute. Being aware of this, we are glad to announce the birth of the Journal of the Nigerian Infectious Diseases Society (JNIDS).
JNIDS is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal published by the Nigerian Infectious Diseases Society.

JNIDS publishes clinical, laboratory, and field-based articles on all aspects of infectious diseases, medical microbiology, and some aspects of public health. The journal will consider Original articles, Reviews, Brief communications, Reports of clinical trials, Case reports/Case series, and Letters to the editor.
Of particular interest are articles that highlight the epidemiology ,pathogenesis, clinical diagnosis, laboratory investigations, treatment, prevention and control of infectious diseases endemic in under-resourced countries. Scientific reports on zoonotic infections are encouraged.

During epidemics or pandemics, JNIDS will target a rapid review of articles that could improve knowledge, clinical care, and policies.

Kindly submit your manuscript through our online submission system NIDS Journal

With your support, we aim to publish high-quality articles at a sustained periodicity and progressively work towards getting indexed in top medical databases.

We look forward to working with you to make this a reality.
