Within merely 6 months of its launch, EMI has published 30 papers with a global diversity among the authors. Important findings about emerging microbes and infections have been rapidly reported, such as the new corona virus identified in Saudi Arabia (P Woo et al., doi:10.1038/emi.2012.45), and genetic studies on the Streptococcus pyogenes related re-emergence of scarlet fever in Hong Kong, China (S Wong et al., doi:10.1038/emi.2012.9). A policy review on the global control of tuberculosis, authored by US NIH/NIAID program leaders (CF Sizemore et al. doi:10.1038/emi.2012.21), was also among the first articles published in EMI.
EMI is published in English and updated bi-weekly as papers are accepted. All articles published in EMI will be open access to worldwide readers. EMI is published by Nature Publishing Group (NPG), a leader in biomedical publishing. Its review is fast and high quality. Reviewers are all experts and are chosen according to the relevance of their experience in the particular subject area covered by each submitted manuscript.
