The Victorian Infectious Diseases Bulletin is published quarterly and provides summaries of infectious diseases surveillance data, local news, outbreak investigations, infection control procedures, clinical cases of general interest, and brief reports on original clinical or laboratory-based research.
The bulletin is distributed free of charge to people with an interest in the control and treatment of infectious diseases in Victoria.
Contributions are invited on any topic dealing with the control of infectious diseases. These may be in the form of articles, short reports or letters. Lead articles will be subject to peer review.
Lead articles should be no more than 2,500 words, with a 200-word abstract. Non–peer reviewed articles should be no more than 2,000 words, and short reports and letters no more than 800 words.
Submissions should be in Microsoft Word–compatible format with Vancouver-style references. Original data from which graphs and figures have been prepared should be included.
Submissions will be edited to conform to the style of the bulletin.
