Aims & Scope

ImmunoInformatics is an open access cross-disciplinary journal committed to publishing cutting edge research in all aspects of immunoinformatics and computational immunology; from core methodological approaches to translational applications both for academic and industrial researchers. ImmunoInformatics is an international journal publishing peer reviewed research which sits at the interface between computer science, physics, mathematics, and experimental immunology. The journal welcomes theoretical contributions which provide a deeper understanding of the field while also covering practical aspects with contributions on advances and applications in clinical medicine.

ImmunoInformatics invites the following types of papers:
  • Research articles which emphasize original results related to theoretical and practical aspects of computational immunology, in close connection with applications to immunomics, systems immunology, and biomedicine.
  • Literature reviews on immunoinformatics and related fields.
  • Tutorial articles that emphasize the strong interdisciplinary component of immunoinformatics.
  • Research letters that allow for the rapid publication of special short communications.
  • Reports on meetings including but not restricted to conferences, workshops, and seminars.
  • Perspectives that report views on topics of the immunoinformatics field that are important to readers.
  • Commentaries that discuss previously published articles or a theme that is an important area of focus.

Areas covered include (but are not limited to):
  • Immunomics,
  • Bioinformatics,
  • Systems immunology,
  • Database design,
  • In silico vaccination,
  • Design and engineering of immune diagnostics and therapeutics,
  • Host-pathogen interactions,
  • Computational image analysis,
  • Mathematical and/or physics-based modelling,
  • Tumor immunology,
  • Machine learning,
  • Translational research.
