Joint Virtual Issues

The latest joint Virtual Issues from both Clinical & Experimental Immunology and Immunology

A Joint Virtual Issue from the BSI and the Biochemical Society

Celebrating increasing collaboration between societies, the British Society for Immunology and the Biochemical Society have created this curated collection of articles from both the BSI’s journals, Immunology and Clinical & Experimental Immunology, and the Biochemical Society journals. It features key topics across the field of immunology, including autoimmunity, immune cell development, immunometabolism and inflammation.

Nobel Prize 2018: Cancer Immunotherapy Collection

The BSI’s two official journals, Immunology and Clinical & Experimental Immunology, are proud to have published many papers in cancer immunotherapy, many of which focus on the role of CTLA-4 and PD-1 in immunotherapies. These include a review authored by James Allison on co‐stimulatory agonists and co‐inhibitory antagonists and a paper by Tasuku Honjo addressing the regulation of B‐1 cell activation and its autoantibody production by Lyn kinase‐regulated signallings.

Microbiome: A Joint Virtual Issue from the BSI and the Microbiology Society

In celebration of World Microbiome Day on the 27th June, the British Society for Immunology and the Microbiology Society and have collaborated to curate a freely available collection of microbiome research and review articles from the Societies' journals.

Inflammasomes and Inflammatory Disease

To coincide with BSI Congress 2017, this virtual issue combined articles from both the BSI’s journals,Immunology and Clinical & Experimental Immunology, with a focus on Inflammasomes and Inflammatory Disease, a topic inspired by the keynote session presented by one of the most eminent scientists working in the field of innate immunity, Luke O'Neill FRS.


Here are the latest free Virtual Issues from Immunology.


Editors’ Choice Virtual Issue, by Danny Altmann

A key part of our role as editors is to optimize the ability of the journal to act as a forum that can focus or synthesize current movements in our field. We believe this collection offers some fine examples of that synthesis.

Drivers and Regulatiors of adaptive immunity – new concepts

This collection demonstrates new directions in our understanding of the shaping of adaptive immunity.

Specialised innate and adaptive immune subsets, compartments and the microbiota in health and disease

This collection includes articles which shed light on different aspects of tissue-specific immune responses to infection and those involved in inflammation in mucosal, adipose and lymphoid tissues. 

The role of microRNAs in immune cell function, health and disease

The key reviews and papers included in this collection examine the specific roles of miRNAs within the immune system, whilst also investigating their potential as biomarkers of disease.

Clinical & Experimental Immunology

Here are the latest free Virtual Issues from Clinical & Experimental Immunology

FOCIS 2019 Virtual Issue

In celebration of The Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS)​ Annual Meeting in Boston (18-21 June), the BSI’s official journal Clinical & Experimental Immunology is pleased to provide free access to a selection of primary research and review articles that relate to topics discussed at FOCIS 2019.

World Arthritis Day 2018: New Virtual Issue

To mark World Arthritis Day 2018, Clinical & Experimental Immunology presents a new virtual issue of selected articles from the journal.

How innate responses control infections

This collection of papers and reviews describes mechanisms underlying innate responses to infections including the influence of macrophage, dendritic cells or mesenchymal stromal cells.

Immunosenescence in health and disease

Collection of articles describing some of what is known about the underlying immunological and biological processes involved in immune-aging.

Type 1 diabetes: insights into pathophysiology, treatments and interventions

This collection examines the mechanisms underlying the development of type 1 diabetes and different treatment strategies under investigation, in both humans and mouse models.

From bench to clinic – highlights in translational immunology research

This collection of reviews and research papers from Clinical & Experimental Immunology outlines some of the important areas in translational immunology research in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of diseases.
