Virtual Issues

Joint Virtual Issues

The latest joint Virtual Issues from the BSI journals: Immunotherapy Advances, Clinical & Experimental Immunology and Immunology

Cancer Immunology & Immunotherapy Virtual Issue

In celebration of World Cancer Day 2021, we are delighted to present our first joint Virtual Issue featuring research from the BSI's first fully Open Access journal, Immunotherapy Advances. We have compiled a selection of outstanding recent articles on cancer immunology and immunotherapy, covering hot topics including CAR-T cell therapies, cancer vaccination, regulatory T cells and checkpoint inhibition-induced adverse events.

Autoimmunity & Autoinflammation Virtual Issue

We celebrate the theme of this year's International Day of Immunology with a selection of some of our favourite reviews and original research papers on the mechanisms underlying autoinflammation and autoimmunity. These articles explore how these processes can contribute to a wide range of diseases, from arthritis to neurodegenerative diseases.

Celebrating Vaccines: Virtual Issue

Vaccination is one of our great medical advances. In this Virtual Issue we celebrate the importance of vaccines in protecting global health with a selection of reviews and original papers highlighting some of the best vaccine research. These articles cover a wide range of important topics, from strategies for vaccine intervention against emerging viruses to the roles of B cells and T cells in maintaining protective immunity.

Cancer Immunology Virtual Issue

The role of the immune system in the progression and development of cancer is an important and growing field, covering topics such as immunotherapy treatment, immunosurveillance and immunoediting. In this Virtual Issue we have curated recent articles which highlight key topics in the field and cutting edge research into cancer 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 collection of articles from the Societies' journals. It features key topics across the field of immunology, including autoimmunity, immune cell development, immunometabolism and inflammation.

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

In celebration of World Microbiome Day, 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, representing a state-of-the-art appraisal from many of the leading immunologists in the field. 

Immunology and the Microbiome: Joint Virtual Issue

To celebrate the international collaboration between the BSI and the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology (ASI) we have curated a joint collection of research and reviews from the Societies' journals, dissecting the complex partnership that continues to evolve between microbes and humans.

Immunotherapy Advances

The latest Open Access article collections from Immunotherapy Advances.

Targeting Immunometabolism

The field of immunometabolism has matured into a vibrant translational research area in the last decade. In this special collection, we provide a comprehensive overview of metabolites and micronutrients in both hosts and pathogens and how they contribute to driving immune responses, covering the translational pipeline from discovery research right through to clinical research as it is applied to immunotherapeutics.

Immunotherapy of Asthma and Allergy

Allergen desensitization for IgE-mediated allergic disease is the oldest form of immunotherapy but progress is still needed to ensure long-term outcomes and precision diagnosis of allergenic triggers. This special collection will explore traditional and novel immunotherapeutics for the treatment of food and environmental allergies and their mechanism of action in changing the allergic immune response.

Clinical & Experimental Immunology

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

FOCIS 2021 Virtual Issue

In celebration of the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS)​ Virtual Annual Meeting, Clinical & Experimental Immunology is pleased to provide free access to a selection of primary research and review articles that complement the scientific programme of FOCIS 2021. These papers represent recent advances in fields as diverse as tumour immunology, COVID-19 pathophysiology and vaccines, cell therapy, immune genetics and immunoageing.

World Primary Immunodeficiency Week Virtual Issue

To call attention to World Primary Immunodeficiency Week, Clinical & Experimental Immunology has created this Virtual Issue highlighting some of our most impactful primary immunodeficiency research from the last three years. This collection features cutting-edge reviews and original research, focusing on topics including PID diagnosis and pathogenesis in chronic granulomatous disease, Behçet’s disease and other PIDs, as well as clinical guidelines on the management of non-infectious CVID complications from the UK Primary Immunodeficiency Network.

Editors' Choice 2020 Virtual Issue

On behalf of all the editorial team of Clinical & Experimental Immunology, it is our pleasure to present this collection of Editors’ Choice articles from 2020. We believe this collection offers some fine examples of immunological techniques and approaches that provide novel mechanistic or therapeutic insight into the immunopathology of human disease. All articles in this collection have been published in journal issues from 2020 and are free to view online. 

COVID-19 Special Issue

In this special issue, Clinical & Experimental Immunology presents a collection of articles on crucial aspects of COVID-19, including original research, reviews and an editorial from Ryan Thwaites (Imperial College London). These papers discuss a variety of topics, including the role of innate immune system in progression of COVID-19, and possible routes to limit severity using immunomodulatory agents. We also present new findings about the antibody response to SARS-CoV-2, relevant for public health serosurveillance, and a thorough summary of vaccine approaches in development and in clinical trial globally.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Week 2020 Virtual Issue

To mark Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Week 2020, Clinical & Experimental Immunology put together a virtual issue highlighting cutting edge research and reviews from recent years covering the most promising areas of  rheumatoid arthritis.

Editors’ Choice 2019 Virtual Issue

On behalf of all the editorial team of Clinical & Experimental Immunology, it is a delight to present this collection of Editors’ Choice articles from 2019. A key part of our role as editors is to identify articles with high relevance to translational immunology that are of broad interest to our readers. We believe this collection offers some fine examples of immunological techniques and approaches that provide novel mechanistic or therapeutic insight into the immunopathology of human disease.

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.
