About the Journal

The Global Vaccines and Vaccination Journal(GVVJ) intends to be an international, reviewed, scientific journal that seeks to promote the development and exchange of knowledge that is directly relevant to all areas of vaccine and vaccination research. The primary aim is to promote a high standard of clinically related scholarship which advances and supports the practice and discipline of vaccine and vaccination research globally. The Journal also aims to promote the international exchange of ideas and experience that draws from the different cultures in which practice takes place. Further, GVVJ seeks to enrich insight into clinical need and the implications for vaccination and the models of service delivery.

Open Access

This is very much in vogue now. Publishers struggle to make profits from sales so they are charging authors for publication. Publishing costs therefore have to be realistic and in tune with what authors can reasonably be expected to pay.

  • Research that is freely available online
  • Free to read, copy, distribute, and use (with attribution)
  • Author retains copyright not the publisher
  • Complies with self-archiving mandates

The Reader

GVVJ aims to be an essential reading for anyone involved in vaccine research, whether clinicians, researchers, educators, managers, policy makers globally. Contributions are welcomed from other health professionals on issues that have a direct impact on vaccine research.
