Open Access Immunology Research
Welcome to Taylor & Francis Open Access Immunology Research
We've created this page to provide authors and researchers with quick access to high-quality, fully open content. Open access makes published academic research freely and permanently available online: Anyone, anywhere can read and build upon this research.
Taylor & Francis hopes that by equipping researchers with relevant materials, breakthroughs in understanding healthy and diseased immune systems can occur at a quicker pace, yielding better treatment methods with advanced applications in other aspects of medicine.

Emerging Microbes & Infections
An open access journal | 2018 Impact Factor 6.212
The mission of Emerging Microbes & Infections ( EMI ) is to provide a new, integrated forum that allows for the timely dissemination of information gathered about microbes and infections, especially ones associated with increasing biological and clinical significance and pathogenic frequency.
The sheer volume and complexity of such information has gone beyond the scale and scope of existing specialty journals, and thus EMI is committed to bridging the gap between scientific communities in developed and developing countries where most of the emerging microbes and infections have occurred in recent years.
An open access journal | 2018 Impact Factor 5.333
OncoImmunology focuses specifically on tumor immunology. As a result of recent progress in the field, immunological biomarkers are becoming ever more important to determine the prognosis of cancers and to predict the efficacy of chemotherapies. Concurrently, there is a need for research that explores the combination of conventional anticancer therapies with immunotherapies.
OncoImmunology accepts high-profile submissions in the fundamental, translational and clinical areas of tumor immunology. Submissions dealing with solid or hematological cancers, inflammation, innate and acquired immune responses are welcome.
An open access journal
Immunological Medicine encourages the submission of original manuscripts covering a wide range of topics such as rheumatology, allergology, oncology, hematology, cardiology, neurology, respiratory medicine, gastroenterology, nephrology, dermatology, pediatrics and other medical topics that relate to both basic and clinical immunology.
Recent progress in the field of clinical immunology has been remarkable—Many diseases and conditions, including autoimmune diseases, allergy-related diseases, infectious diseases, malignant diseases, immunodeficiency and transplantation-related conditions are associated with immunological abnormalities and require immunological approaches from various medical fields.
Clinical immunology plays an increasingly important role as the bridge between basic research and clinical practice, with the significance of translational research rapidly increasing in recent years.
Journal of Immunotoxicology
An open access journal | 2018 Impact Factor 1.734
Journal of Immunotoxicology provides a much needed singular forum for the international community of immunotoxicologists, immunologists and toxicologists working in academia, government, consulting and industry to both publish their original research and to stay informed with the latest research findings of their colleagues.
Research from many sub-disciplines are presented in the journal, including the areas of molecular, developmental, pulmonary, regulatory, nutritional, mechanistic, wildlife, and environmental immunotoxicology, immunology, and toxicology. Journal of Immunotoxicology publishes original research articles as well as timely comprehensive reviews.
Microbial Ecology in Health and Disease
An open access journal
Microbial Ecology in Health and Disease is the official journal of the Society of Microbial Ecology in Health and Disease (SOMED).
The research presented in this journal has received new impetus in recent years as it has become clearer what part is played by the normal, microbial flora in preventing infection, and related to this, the potentially deleterious effects of the use of antibiotics. The aim is to draw together research on different human microbial eco-systems, and to increase our understanding of their role in health and disease.
Topics covered include:
- Microbial populations of the mouth and skin, and in the respiratory, gastro-intestinal and genito-urinary tracts
- Effect of antibiotics or diet on the commensal flora or its development, alterations in the host environment (e.g. the effect of foreign bodies or change in organs and tissues)
- The role of immunological and other mechanisms that help maintain a stable flora
- Clinical application of commensal flora in treatment and prevention of disease
