Journal of Immunobiology (Omics Publishing S.L) has announced almost 50 % discount on article processing charge to commemorate its 10th Anniversary.

Journal of Immunobiology (JIB) is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that focuses and welcomes submissions on all aspects of Innate Immunity, Adaptive Immunity, Clinical Experimental Immunology, Cellular & Molecular Immunology, Autoimmunity, Immunogenetics, Clinical & Vaccine Immunology, Immune Disorders, Autoimmune Disorders, Immunotherapy and Immunopathology of infectious. Etc. 

It gives us great pleasure to announce the call for paper on the occasion of 10th Anniversary of the Journal at special and hefty discount of up to 50 percent on one-time article processing charge. Prospective academicians and scientists are encouraged to utilize this opportunity to get their articles reviewed, processed and published at relatively faster pace and at lower charges. In addition to this, the authors who publish with us during the year-long celebrations will also be eligible for academic awards recommended by the editorial panel.

The Archive page contains wide variety of articles such as Research / Review / Case reports / short communication / Mini review / Prospective / Letter to Editors Etc. We would like introduce a Research article which has been spread to the widest audience of experts; and thus increased in readership, citations and altimetry score.

Title: “Health Care Facility Network Efficiency and Location Crucial for Ebola Treatment Outcome


The application of network analysis in public health research is gaining popularity with the belief that health problems are a product of complex social, political and economic causes. Organisational networks can be used in public health to design and evaluate public health programs. There have been multiple studies in the past relating to public health organisations and HIV/AIDS using organisational networking method. Here we use social network analysis to analyse the association between the network positions of health care facilities and the treatment outcome of Ebola patients from these health care facilities in Sierra Leone. We extracted and later analysed treatment outcome data obtained from the Case Report Forms (CRF) of 117 Ebola patients who sought Ebola treatment at the Kenema Government Hospital from June 2014 to April 2015. For ego network purpose, we considered each Ebola referral health care facility as an ego. Poisson regression analysis was used to determine the association between Ebola mortality rates in a health care facility and the ego’s structural holes. The median age, length of stay during Ebola treatment, and the period it takes an Ebola patient to survive treatment following from onset of signs and symptoms were 20 (IQR=17.5 years), 15 (IQR=11 days) and 7 (IQR=5.3 days) respectively. There were differences in ego, network efficiency, effective size and constraint for the factors associated with mortality rates for Ebola patients treated at the Kenema Government Hospital. Establishing non-redundant contacts within a health care facility network and expanding their locations can reduce Ebola mortality rates during outbreak.
