– JIPH the First of Elsevier’s Middle East Titles to be Selected for
MEDLINE Indexing

Elsevier Middle East announces that the Journal of Infection and Public

bibliographic database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM).
Citations for articles indexed, the indexing terms and the abstract printed
in the journal are now searchable using PubMed (http://www.pubmed.gov).
Indexing using the US National Library of Medicine’s (NLM) advanced MeSH
terminology will be retroactive from Volume 1, Issue 1 (2008) of the journal.

“This news is very gratifying and underscores the hard work and
dedication of all Editorial Board members, as well as the contributions of
the authors,” commented Ziad A. Memish, MD, FRCPC, FACP, JIPH
Editor-in-Chief. “MEDLINE recognition means that the contributions of authors
submitting their work to JIPH will now be viewed and cited more widely than
ever before and we anticipate that our indexed status will have a very
positive impact on manuscript submissions and international readership.”

“The Middle East is an increasingly important region for scholarly
research,” Haifa Mughrabi, Director of Elsevier Middle East said. “JIPH is
the first title from our Middle East journal portfolio to achieve this goal
through the hard work and dedication of the editorial board.”

JIPH is the official publication of the Saudi Arabian National Guard
Health Affairs, and King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences

foremost scientific, peer-reviewed journal encompassing infection prevention
