Description

Acta Tropica, is an international journal on infectious diseases that covers public health sciences and biomedical research with particular emphasis on topics relevant to human and animal health in the tropics and the subtropics.

Its scope includes the biology of pathogens and vectors, host-parasite relationships, mechanisms of pathogenicity, clinical disease and treatment, and we welcome contributions in basic or applied research in disciplines such as epidemiology, disease ecology, diagnostics, interventions and control, mathematical modeling, public health and social sciences, climate change, parasite and vector taxonomy, host and parasite genomics, biochemistry and immunology and vaccine testing.

Contributions may be in the form of original papers, review articles or short communications.

Only manuscripts of high scientific significance and innovation will be considered for publication. Manuscripts of minimal international relevance, case reports, and control strategies at very early inconclusive laboratory stages of development will not be considered for publication.



Important Guidelines for Acceptance
Editors and the Editorial Board of Acta Tropica provide the following guidelines to help authors prepare manuscripts of high quality that can be considered for publication. Maximize your chances of acceptance by making sure your manuscript:

  • Matches the scientific scope of the journal,
  • Presents results that significantly advance science including innovative new approaches,
  • Meets quality standards of presentation and literature citation,
  • Demonstrates potential health or biomedical impact.


The above points are critical for publication of original papers. Be aware Editors carefully evaluate initial manuscript submissions and only those meeting the above criteria will be forwarded to review. If reviewed favorably and the authors seriously address all concerns, than chances of acceptance are increased. Review papers, in addition, are expected to carefully synthesize the literarture and make recommendations to advance respective scientific fields.
