The Journal of Antimicrobial Stewardship (JAMS) is the only exclusive journal devoted to the advancement of antimicrobial stewardship. The open-access journal publishes quarterly peer-reviewed articles on a variety of topics that pertain to antimicrobial stewardship including clinical microbiology, rapid diagnostic tests, pharmacoeconomics, disease state-based stewardship interventions and the evaluation of current and novel therapies that promote optimal infectious diseases practices in a variety of settings and institutions. JAMS publishes high-quality original research articles, review articles, editorial commentaries, and challenging patient scenarios. The aim of the Journal of Antimicrobial Stewardship is to provide timely, informative and innovative research articles on topics related to antimicrobial stewardship and infectious diseases pharmacotherapy. The goal of the Journal is to catalyze the change required to improve patient outcomes through the promotion of optimal antimicrobial stewardship practices.


JAMS features interdisciplinary research that advances knowledge of antimicrobial stewardship and infectious diseases practices. The Journal also publishes studies that improve understanding of the translational application of microbiological science into the clinical realm and directly to the patient’s bedside. JAMS accepts work involving in vitro pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics  along with in vivo, real-world clinical studies, relevant review articles, and viewpoints to bring readers to the cutting edge of the science and art of antimicrobial stewardship. The Journal highlights new trends and developments in the field through authoritative reviews by experts in the discipline of stewardship. Special attention is applied to articles pertaining to the problem of and proposed solutions towards antimicrobial resistance in the hospital, community and long-term care settings.  The total body of literature contained in the Journal of Antimicrobial Stewardship provides a key resource for physicians, pharmacists, microbiologists, infection preventionists, and other clinicians.
