As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Treatment outcomes and paving the way for an HIV cure in Low and Middle Income Countries

Edited by  Dr Eric Arts, Dr Nicaise Ndembi and Dr Denis Tebit

Discussion of HIV treatment outcomes in LMICs has historically been neglected, even though it is in these countries that a cure is most crucial. This series covers the ways treatment outcomes can be improved along the way to a HIV cure in states defined as LMICs by the WHO.

Spatial inequality, infectious diseases and disease control
Cross-journal collection

Spatial inequality is the unequal distribution of resources and services across different areas or locations, such as healthcare, welfare, public services, household income and infrastructures, and it can be described in terms of proximity, distance, clustering and concentration. This collection brings together research that investigates the relationship between spatial inequalities of all kinds and the impact and prevalence of infectious diseases, including the impact of antimicrobial resistance.

Announcing the launch of In Review

AIDS Research and Therapy, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received 

Aims and scope

AIDS Research and Therapy publishes articles on basic, translational, clinical, social, epidemiological, behavioral and educational sciences, focused on the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS, and the search for the cure. The Journal publishes studies on novel and developing treatment strategies for AIDS, as well as on the outcomes of established treatment strategies. Original research articles on animal models that form an essential part of the AIDS treatment research are also considered.
