Immunology Letters provides a vehicle for the speedy publication of full-length and short articles, Rapid Notes, (mini)Reviews and Letters to the Editor addressing all aspects of molecular and cellular immunology. The essential criteria for publication will be clarity, experimental soundness and novelty. Results contradictory to current accepted thinking or ideas divergent from actual dogmas will be considered for publication provided that they are based on solid experimental findings. Preference will be given to papers of immediate importance to other investigators, either by their experimental data, new ideas or new methodology. Scientific correspondence to the Editor-in-Chief related to the published papers may also be accepted provided that they are short and scientifically relevant to the papers mentioned, in order to provide a continuing forum for discussion. Within a reference section, new mRNA sequences with unknown function, expressed sequence tags with tissue distribution and novel monoclonal antibody descriptions are considered for publication.
