Clinical Microbiology and Infection (CMI)

CMI is the official publication of the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) and aims to publish original research and reviews that will assist physicians and clinical microbiologists in their management of patients, in the prevention of infectious diseases, and in developing and assessing innovative diagnostic approaches. CMI should help researchers to communicate as well as further their research. We aim to promote good methods in basic and clinical research, clear reporting, and to publish interesting and thought-provoking material. CMI is committed to the mission of ESCMID ‘…to improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infection-related diseases. This is achieved by promoting and supporting research, education, training and good medical practice.’


To be able to maintain CMI's level of excellence, we need your help. We would like to hear what you expect from CMI, what topics are of interest to you, and any suggestion or contribution you could make. Please send any new ideas you would like to share to the Editor-in-Chief: Leonard Leibovici leibovic[at]
