Oxford University Press to Publish Medical Mycology with ISHAM Beginning in 201427 January 2014
Oxford University Press is pleased to announce its new partnership with the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology (ISHAM). Beginning in January 2014, OUP and ISHAM will be working together to publish the journal Medical Mycology.Medical Mycology is a peer-reviewed international journal that focuses on original and innovative basic and applied studies, as well as learned reviews on all aspects of medical, veterinary and environmental mycology. Its objective is to present the highest quality scientific reports from throughout the world on such divergent topics as the phylogeny of fungal pathogens, the application of new approaches in the treatment of mycoses such as nanoparticles, and descriptions of new or unusual fungi associated with human or animal diseases.
The research published in Medical Mycology is intended to provide a comprehensive information base on areas in the forefront of research and newly proposed revisions in reference concepts for use by medical mycologists, microbiologists, clinicians, and environmental specialists.
“Medical Mycology is a leader in its field, and we're honored to have been selected as its new publisher,” said Alison Denby, Editorial Director of the journals program at OUP. “This new partnership not only reflects our commitment to publishing excellent journals, but OUP's investment in the future of mycology research.”
“ISHAM is very pleased to partner with OUP as the new publishers of Medical Mycology. Along with our Editor-in-Chief and associate editors, we are working together with OUP to further refine and improve the presentation, quality, speed and efficiency of the journal. Our ambitions are to extend the reach and raise the impact of Medical Mycology to ensure that it is the journal of publication choice for medical mycologists worldwide.”
