    Journal of Infection Prevention is a peer-reviewed professional journal for all workers in infection prevention and control. The aim of the journal is to advance the evidence base in infection prevention and control, and to provide a publishing platform for all health professionals interested in this field of practice. It welcomes original articles that address aspects of infection prevention and control and contribute to development and understanding of relevant theory or practice.

    1. Peer review policy

    The journal's policy is to obtain at least two independent reviews of each article. It operates a double-blind reviewing policy in which the author and reviewer’s names are mutually concealed – as such; submitted manuscripts should contain no identifying information.

    Referees will be encouraged to provide substantive, constructive reviews that provide suggestions for improving the work and distinguish between mandatory and non-mandatory recommendations.

    The editor welcomes papers that contribute toward the development and understanding of infection prevention and control theory and practice. All manuscripts accepted for publication are subject to editing for presentation, style and grammar. Any major redrafting is agreed with the author but the editor's decision on the text is final.

    2. Article types

    The Journal welcomes original manuscripts of the following types:

    Full-length, original research articles
    These should contain a maximum of 4,000 words, including the structured abstract of up to 250 words, text, acknowledgements and references.  Each table or figure counts as 200 words.

    Reviews
    These may be up to 5,000 words (excluding references) and provide a detailed overview and analysis of research evidence on an aspect of infection prevention and control. Reviews will also be submitted to a peer review process.  Authors are advised to discuss the proposed review with the editor prior to submission.

    Letters
    Letters referring to topics raised by papers already published in the Journal of Infection Prevention or elsewhere, or novel findings meriting rapid dissemination.  They should not contain structural headings or a summary, and should be a maximum of 1,000 words with no more than 5 references.  Letters will not normally be peer-reviewed, but may be shown to the authors of the article being commented on, who will be invited to respond, should they wish to do so.

    Short reports
    These should contain up to 1,500 words, no more than 2 figures or tables, and up to 10 references. The format should be the same as a full length article, i.e introduction or background/methods/results/discussion and conclusion. Short reports will be subject to the same peer review process as full-length articles.

    Research-based commentaries
    These should contain up to 3,000 words, including abstract and references, and provide a succinct and balanced summary of existing research on a relevant, current topic of interest. Authors are advised to discuss the proposed commentary with the editor prior to submission.

    3. Format of articles

    It is the authors' responsibility to ensure the manuscript is in the required format before submission. Papers that are submitted with references or other features that do not comply with these instructions will be returned to their authors and will not be considered for publication until they have been resubmitted. If you would like to discuss your paper prior to submission, please contact the Editor at: jipeditors@sagepub.com.

    Title Page
    . This should show the title, names of all authors (but not their degrees) and the institution or department where they work.  It should also include the name, address, telephone and email address of the corresponding author to whom the proofs and correspondence should be sent.

    Front page of main document
    In addition to the title of the article, the front page should include the following information:

    • Word count
    • Approval obtained for reproduction or modification of material published elsewhere (if applicable)
    • Sources of funding (if applicable)
    • Commercial affiliations (if applicable)

    Abstract. This should not exceed 200 words, should briefly explain the study and for all full-length original articles must be structured with the following headings:-

    • Background
    • Aim/ Objective
    • Methods
    • Findings/results
    • Discussion

    Since this will be the first, and perhaps the only, part of the paper that is read it is essential that it conveys the key elements of the work.

    Keywords. Authors should provide keywords from their summary. These should be chosen carefully to ensure that those indexing and searching for papers in the field are able to locate your work.

    Main text of article
    Headings and subheadings may be used in the article with the following structure recommended:

    Background A brief statement outlining the purpose and context of the paper and aim of the study.

    Methods. A description of the approach taken to the study, setting, design and methods used, and where relevant or appropriate, the process used to obtain ethical approval and patient/participant consent.

    Results. Description of study results with no discussion of their significance or relationship to other work in the field. Information may be conveyed in text, or in figures or tables, but should not be repeated in more than one format.

    Discussion. Discription of the significance of the findings including their relationship with other research in the field and where appropriate their application in practice. It should include any weaknesses or limitations of the study. New results should not be introduced in the discussion.

    Acknowledgments: All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an `Acknowledgements’ section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, writing assistance, or a department chair who provided only general support. Authors should disclose whether they had any writing assistance and identify the entity that paid for this assistance. Any acknowledgements should appear first at the end of the article prior to the References.

    References. All work referred to in the manuscript must be fully cited using the Harvard system of referencing (see section 6.3).

    Tips for effective writing for publication
    It is important that the work should be written carefully and accurately, ruthlessly removing superfluous or ambiguous words. Please check the spelling, especially unusual or scientific terms or names. Start with a single sheet of paper outlining the order of ideas and arguments. Before starting to write, read some articles in respected journals that and look at the way facts are presented, arguments are made and the style of language used.

    4. Publication conventions  

    Authors will be required to confirm the following information during the submission process:

    4.1 Funding Acknowledgement
    When the work included in a paper has been supported by a grant or supplies from any source, including a manufacturer or commercial company, this must be indicated. It will be printed at the end of the article.
    To comply with the guidance for Research Funders, Authors and Publishers issued by the Research Information Network (RIN), Journal of Infection Prevention additionally requires all Authors to acknowledge their funding in a consistent fashion under a separate heading. All research articles should have a funding acknowledgement in the form of a sentence as follows, with the funding agency written out in full, followed by the grant number in square brackets:

    • This work was supported by the Medical Research Council [grant number xxx].
    • Multiple grant numbers should be separated by comma and space. Where the research was supported by more than one agency, the different agencies should be separated by semi-colons, with “and” before the final funder. Thus:
    • This work was supported by the Wellcome Trust [grant numbers xxxx, yyyy]; the Natural Environment Research Council [grant number zzzz]; and the Economic and Social Research Council [grant number aaaa].

    In some cases, research is not funded by a specific project grant, but rather from the block grant and other resources available to a university, college or other research institution. Where no specific funding has been provided for the research we ask that corresponding authors use the following sentence:

    • This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.

    Please include this information under a separate heading entitled “Funding” directly after any other Acknowledgements and prior to the “Declaration of Conflicting Interests” (if applicable), any Notes and your References.
    For more information on the guidance for Research Funders, Authors and Publishers, please visit:http://www.rin.ac.uk/funders-acknowledgement.

    4.2 Declaration of conflicting interests
    Within the Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement you will be required to make a certification with respect to a declaration of conflicting interests. It is the policy of Journal of Infection Prevention to require a declaration of conflicting interests from all authors enabling a statement to be carried within the paginated pages of all published articles.

    Please include any declaration at the end of the manuscript prior to the references, under a heading ‘Conflict of Interest Statement’. If no declaration is made, the following will be printed under this heading in your article: ‘None Declared’. Alternatively, you may wish to state that ‘The Author(s) declare(s) that there is no conflict of interest’.  When making a declaration, the disclosure information must be specific and include any financial relationship that all authors of the article have with any sponsoring organization and the for-profit interests that the organisation represents, and with any for-profit product discussed or implied in the text of the article.

    Any commercial or financial involvements that might represent an appearance of a conflict of interest need to be additionally disclosed in the covering letter accompanying the article to assist the Editor in evaluating whether sufficient disclosure has been made within the Conflict of Interest statement provided in the article.

    4.3 Ethical approval
    Where relevant for the work reported in the article, authors will be expected to confirm that the appropriate ethical approvals to conduct the work were obtained and indicate this in the methods section. 

    When reporting experiments on human subjects, indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional or regional) or with the Declaration of Helsinki 1975, revised Hong Kong 1989. Patient’s names, initials or hospital numbers, should not be used especially in illustrative material. When reporting experiments on animals, indicate which guideline/law on the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.

    4.4 Informed consent
    International Committee of Medical Journal Editors ("Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals":http://www.icmje.org/about-icmje/faqs/icmje-recommendations/).

    Participants/patients have a right to privacy that should not be infringed without informed consent. Identifying information, including names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, and pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the participant (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires that a participant who is identifiable be shown the manuscript to be published.

    Complete anonymity is difficult to achieve and informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, such as in genetic pedigrees, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning and editors should so note.

    When informed consent has been obtained it should be indicated in the submitted article.

    4.5 Authorship
    Papers should only be submitted for consideration once all contributing authors have agreed the content of the paper. Those submitting papers should carefully check that all those whose work contributed to the paper are acknowledged as contributing authors.

    The list of authors should include all those who can legitimately claim authorship. The contribution of each author to the research/review should be defined and each must meet all the following criteria as defined by ICMJE:

    (i) Made a substantial contribution to the concept and design; or the acquisition, analysis or interpretation of data for the work

    (ii) Drafted the article or revised it critically for important intellectual content.

    (iii) Approved the version to be published.

    (iv) Agreed to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work were appropriately investigated and resolved.

    When a large, multicentre group has conducted the work, the group should identify the individuals who accept direct responsibility for the manuscript. These individuals should fully meet the criteria for authorship. All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the Acknowledgments section.

    ICMJE recommendations: http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/browse/roles-and-responsibilities/defining-the-role-of-authors-and-contributors.html

    5. Guidelines for preparing the manuscript                

    The text should be double-spaced throughout and with a minimum of 3cm for left and right hand margins and 5cm at head and foot. Text should be standard 10 or 12 point font. ??font style

    5.1 Keywords and Abstracts
    The title, keywords and abstract are key to ensuring that readers find the article online through online search engines such as Google. Please refer to the information and guidance on how best to title the article, write the abstract and select keywords by visiting SAGE’s Journal Author Gateway Guidelines on How to Help Readers Find Your Article Online.

    5.2 Guidelines for submitting artwork, figures and other graphics
    For guidance on the preparation of illustrations, pictures and graphs in electronic format, please visit SAGE’s Manuscript Submission Guidelines.

    Images should be supplied as bitmap based files (i.e. with .tiff or .jpeg extension) with a resolution of at least 300 dpi (dots per inch). Line art should be supplied as vector-based, separate .eps files (not as .tiff files, and not only inserted in the Word or pdf file), with a resolution of 600 dpi. Images should be clear, in focus, free of pixilation and not too light or dark.

    If usable colour figures are submitted, these figures will appear in colour online regardless of whether or not these illustrations are reproduced in colour in the printed version. For specifically requested colour reproduction in print, you will receive information regarding the possible costs from SAGE after receipt of your accepted article.

    In text: tables and figures should be either inserted as part of a sentence, for example table 1 or in parentheses for example (figure 1). Each table should carry a descriptive heading. Each figure should be submitted electronically.

    Figures

    The editors encourage the inclusion of figures where appropriate. Authors should ensure that electronic copies of all figures are available for review. Authors should submit figure files as high resolution EPS or JPEG files, and send those files along with the main manuscript files.

    All figures (line drawings, graphs and photographs) should be referred to in the text. Figures are often reduced in size when appearing on the printed page - allowance for this should be made when selecting text and symbol size. Symbols and keys should be given as a key on the artwork, not in the legend. The magnifications should be indicated by a scale bar on the photograph, not as a magnification factor in the legend

    Once the publisher receives an accepted paper hard copies of photographs and other figures will be requested if necessary.

    Figure Legends

    Figure legends should be supplied for all figures. Authors should ensure that figure legends are saved separately to the figures. These should not be embeded in Word files – but supplied as individual files.

    Tables

    If tables, charts or graphs are to be included, original or coordinate values should also be sent. Charts and graphs must be clearly labelled, and the axes on graphs made clear. Tables should be self-explanatory and include a brief descriptive title.

    5.3 Guidelines for submitting supplemental files
    The journal may be able to host approved supplemental materials online, alongside the full-text of articles. Supplemental files will be subjected to peer-review alongside the article. Please contact the Editor (jipeditors@sagepub.com) in the first instance. For more information refer to SAGE’s Guidelines for Authors on Supplemental Files.

    5.4 English Language Editing
    Non-English speaking authors who would like to refine their use of language in their manuscripts might consider using a professional editing service. Visit http://www.sagepub.co.uk/authors/journal/submission.sp for further information.
