Description:The Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) journal marked its 21st year of publication in 2015. Established in 1995, EID has steadfastly promoted the recognition of new and reemerging infectious diseases around the world and published thousands of peer-reviewed articles that discuss factors involved in disease emergence, prevention, and eradication.
EID communicates timely and relevant public health information from the field so that prevention and control measures can be implemented without delay. We are proud that EID continues to be one of the few open access, peer-reviewed journals available both online and in print with no charge to authors or reviewers.
This document, Emerging Infectious Diseases: 2015 Year in Review, provides an overview of EID’s key achievements during the year. A few key metrics demonstrate how well the journal reaches its core audiences:
• EID’s 2015 ISI (institute for Scientific Information) impact factor of 6.75 ranked it third among the nearly 80 infectious disease journals that ISI tracks and first among open-access journals.
• EID received 2,120 submissions during 2015, topping its previous high of 2,070 for 2010.
• The journal’s online page views continue to climb, totaling nearly 4 million for 2015.
• EID engages a wide audience on many platforms including podcasts, CME quizzes, and Twitter.
