The IJTLD is evolving. Alongside research on TB, we cover related respiratory diseases such as asthma, bronchiectasis, COVID-19, COPD, child lung health and the hazards of tobacco and air pollution.
A subscription provides unrestricted access to all our content including Editorials, Original Articles and Correspondence, alongside new article formats for Minireviews, Clinical Standards, Letters and Literature Highlights. Our impact factor is also growing – the 2022 Impact factor is 4.0.
Individuals and Institutes can subscribe to the IJTLD online, simply e-mail us at email@example.com
Funding agencies (including WHO and Gates Foundation) have recently mandated that authors must publish exclusively in fully-OA journals.
Our response to this change is to maintain the IJTLD for authors in LMICs who lack OA funding, while also launching a new title, IJTLD OPEN. This allows us to have a fully compliant OA journal that will enhance our coverage of TB and lung disease.
Both journals have the same Editorial Board with an identical peer review process and acceptance criteria. The only difference occurs after acceptance – authors with OA funding will be published in IJTLD OPEN.
The latest peer-reviewed articles on TB and HIV; respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD; and the hazards of tobacco and air pollution. Recent coverage has expended to include COVID-19 and the interplay between TB-COVID-19 and other co-morbidities.
We recently launched the IJTLD Clinical Standards for Lung Health, for optimal management of patients.
Thanks to the support of the Oskar-Helene-Heim Foundation and the Günther Labes Foundation, the first four Clinical Standards are Open Access and freely available to our global audience of clinicians and healthcare workers.
The series launched with Clinical standards for the assessment, management and rehabilitation of post-TB lung disease followed by Clinical standards for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of TB infection, Clinical standards for the dosing and management of TB drugs and Clinical standards for drug-susceptible pulmonary TB.
