ImmunoHorizons is a fully peer-reviewed open access, online-only journal committed to advancing the knowledge of immunology. All editorial decisions are made by practicing scientistsImmunoHorizons is an open access journal; copyright is held by the authors. During submission, the corresponding author will, on behalf of all authors, select a license type under which the article will be published. AAI offers a choice of the following licenses:

The author(s) retain copyright of all material published in ImmunoHorizons, unless all authors are employees of the US Government, in which case the article is in the public domain in the United States. If all authors are employees of the US Government, the article will be published under a CC BY 4.0 license.

Criteria for publication include rigorous methodology with well supported conclusions that advance the field and are of broad interest. ImmunoHorizons will consider observations of interest even if complete mechanistic or functional characterization cannot yet be provided. ImmunoHorizons will also consider for publication novel methods, assays or computational tools, as well as initial characterizations of novel reagents, including mouse strains, clones and antibodies, even if biological insights have not yet been fully realized. Large descriptive data sets which are of interest to the field will also be considered.

Research Articles
Work from across the full spectrum of the immunology landscape will be considered. Research articles will be published in the following sections:

  • Adaptive Immunity
  • Clinical and Translational Immunology
  • Infectious Disease
  • Innate Immunity
  • Immunology Education

Immunology Education
ImmunoHorizons invites research articles on immunology education, curriculum innovation, laboratory technique education, interdisciplinary approaches, and novel pedagogical strategies to inform future generations of immunologists. These submissions should contain a quantitative evaluation of the effectiveness of the teaching method described. Please refer to our call for papers on immunology education for further details. 

In addition, the Editorial Board will consider perspective articles on current issues facing immunology educators and proposed innovative pedagogical or curricular solutions. All levels of education (secondary school, undergraduate, graduate, medical, and more) will be considered.

All submissions will undergo peer and editorial review.

On the Horizon
ImmunoHorizons will publish invited commentaries focused on future directions in a specific area of immunology research. The articles should be 4-6 journal pages in length, including illustrations and references. Articles should provide succinct overviews of a research area but should maintain a focus "on the horizon," with the goal of highlighting current gaps in knowledge and major unanswered questions. Speculation is encouraged.
