Mission and Scope

From the Editors

Immunology is in a period of unprecedented expansion and progress. The broad influence of the immune system on diverse aspects of health and disease is beginning to be appreciated, and innovative immunological interventions are proving successful in the clinic. New tools are revealing the extent of this influence with exceptional precision and reach. Science Immunology will provide a platform for the most exciting findings in this growing field.

Mission 

To facilitate understanding of the immune system by showcasing innovative advances in the expanding field of immunology, drawing from studies in all organisms and model systems including humans.

Scope

Science Immunology will publish original, peer-reviewed, science-based research articles that report critical advances in all areas of immunological research, including important new tools and techniques. The editors encourage submission of original research findings from all areas within the broad field of immunology from all model organisms, including humans. Areas covered range from basic studies into the biology of innate and adaptive immunity (immune cell development and differentiation, immunogenomics, systems immunology, structural immunology, antigen presentation, immunometabolism, and mucosal immunology) to immune contributions to health and disease (host defense, inflammation, cancer immunology, autoimmunity, allergy, transplantation, and immunodeficiency). The editors and an international advisory group of scientists will hold Science Immunology articles to the same high-quality standard that is the hallmark of the Science family of journals.
