About the Journal

In the wake of the present century advancement of medical and bioscience research allowed us to understand the diseases with more detail information. The recent reemergence and resurgence of tropical diseases have knocked down our pride of medical advancement. The number of growing cases raised major concern especially for tropical diseases. The present situation demands more research attention from the global scientific community. Generation of such information and its rapid dissemination is must considering the growing concern.
"Tropical Medicine" refers to the wide-ranging clinical research and an educational effort of clinicians, scientists, surgeons, with immunologic, surgical and molecular approaches to tropical diseases, occurs solely in tropical and subtropical regions. Tropical Medicine & Surgery: Open Access emphasises the clinical, diagnosis, treatment of tropical diseases with their therapeutic & surgical aspects.
Tropical Medicine & Surgery is a peer-reviewed open access journal. Articles to be considered should in the form of original research, review, case studies, short communication etc. and readers can access information in a barrier-free manner.
Tropical Medicine & Surgery journal aims to provide a platform for international physicians, surgeons, medical scientists, allied health scientists, public health workers and students, to meet the growing challenges of understanding, preventing and controlling the dramatic global emergence of infectious diseases.
Tropical Medicine encompass conditions that occur solely or principally in the tropics, as well as those that are more difficult to manage or control in the tropics, which might include a range of communicable as well as non-communicable diseases. Communicable diseases include a number of infectious and parasitic diseases. Non-communicable diseases often include a number of chronic diseases of growing importance in the tropics, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, respiratory diseases and diabetes.

Editorial Manager System is being used by the journal for smooth functioning and communication maintaining among the authors, editor office, editor and the respective reviewers, therefore, allowing to maintain high quality peer review process. Authors, reviewers can submit their articles thorough this online system and the editors can manage accordingly. Each article submitted will enter the peer review process after the editor’s approval and minimum of two reviewers consent is must for acceptance of article towards publication.

Authors are encouraged to submit papers based on new findings from original data collection or new analyses of existing data. However, systematic reviews, other critical analyses and reports will be considered for publication.

 

Tropical Medicine

Tropical medicine also known as international medicine, is the branch of medicine is dedicated to treatment, care and cure of tropical diseases, which are commonly occurring in developing countries due to lack of hygiene, knowledge etc. Tropical medicine mainly focuses on pharmacological, molecular biological, physiological, pathological and gene studies on treatment and management of alarming infectious diseases such as kala azar, tsutsugamushi, schistosomiasis, anthracia pestis, plague, malaria, cholera, Ebola hemorrhagic fever, leprosy, Japanese encephalitis, hepatitis.

Tropical Health Nutrition

A poor diet may have an injurious impact on health, causing deficiency diseases like blindness, anemia, scurvy, preterm birth, stillbirth, cretinism and many other deficiency syndromes. Every human being should take nutrition rich food in their diet. Nutrition is the science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of an organism. Malnutrition refers to insufficient, excessive, or imbalanced consumption of nutrients. Tropical Health Nutrition mainly focuses on the health of populations living in tropical & subtropical regions like Africa, North America, CENTRAL America, South America, Caribbean, South-east Asia. In tropical countries, the diseases of malnutrition are most often associated with nutritional imbalances or excessive consumption.
