The International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents (IJAA) is pleased to announce two calls for Special Issue articles.

Special Issue on One-Health

This special issue calls for submissions on AMR within the One-health framework, across diverse fields.

Guest editors:

Reema Singh, PhD
Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization—International Vaccine Centre, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

Yonghong Xiao, MD, PhD
State Key Laboratory for Diagnosis & Treatment of Infectious Diseases the First Affiliated Hospital, School of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China

Special issue information:

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a significant and pressing global threat that arises from the inappropriate use of antimicrobials in humans, plants, food animals, and the environment. The development of AMR is further exacerbated by the circulation of resistant organisms within healthcare environments. To effectively address the issue of AMR, it is essential to adopt a comprehensive and collaborative approach that emphasizes the interconnectedness of the environment, animals, and humans. This approach is commonly referred to as the “One-Health” approach.The International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents is currently accepting submissions for a special issue that focuses on AMR in a One-Health context. This issue will cover multiple disciplines, and we invite contributions from experts in both academia and industry. We are seeking original research, review articles, and short communications for this virtual special issue. The following areas are of particular interest:
- AMR in human and animal disease-causing pathogens
- Epidemiology and transmission of resistant pathogens in the environment (i.,e soil, water, air)
- One-health integrated surveillance and management of AMR
- One-health interventions to control AMR

Manuscript submission information:

Please submit your paper to International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents via Editorial Manager®.

To submit your manuscript to the special issue, please select the Article Type “VSI: One-health”.

Submission deadline: 10 July 2024.

Special Issue: AI strategies to combat AMR

The Special Issue accepts research on the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and antimicrobial resistance (AMR), including both reviews and original papers.

Guest editors:

Dr. Jiawei Wang; European Bioinformatics Institute, Cambridge, UK

Dr. Adrián Cazares; European Bioinformatics Institute, Cambridge, UK.

Prof. Julian Parkhill; Department of Veterinary Medicine, Cambridge Veterinary School, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB3 0ES, United Kingdom.

Special issue information:

This special issue aims to explore the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and antimicrobial resistance (AMR), highlighting AI-driven innovative strategies and technologies for addressing this urgent global health challenge. The articles in this collection will cover a wide range of topics, including machine learning approaches for predicting drug resistance, AI-driven drug discovery efforts, and computational models elucidating AMR mechanisms within the broad context of bacterial genomics, bacterial biology, and phage biology. We welcome submissions of both reviews and original papers that describe computational algorithms, tools, and resources in related fields.

Manuscript submission information:

Please submit your paper to International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents via Editorial Manager®.

To submit your manuscript to the special issue, please select the Article Type “VSI: AI strategies to combat AMR”.

Submission deadline: 31 December 2024.
