The Journal of the International AIDS Society (JIAS) is an official open-access, peer-reviewed, medical journal published by the International AIDS Society. Founded in 2004, the journal covers all aspects of research on HIV and AIDS.

The journal’s primary purpose is to provide an open-access platform for the generation and dissemination of evidence from a wide range of HIV-related disciplines, encouraging research from low- and middle-income countries. In addition, JIAS aims to strengthen capacity and empower less-experienced researchers from resource-limited countries.

The journal operates under the leadership of its Editors-in-Chief, Susan Kippax (Australia), Papa Salif Sow (Senegal) and Mark Wainberg (Canada), as well as an Editorial Board made up of 46 leading scientists specialized in the disciplines covered by the journal.

The journal welcomes submissions from a variety of disciplines with the objectives of making available the most relevant information and of reaching all relevant stakeholders involved in all aspects of the HIV response. The journal strongly encourages submission of papers in the areas of implementation science and operational research, in particular from resource-limited settings. This is to ensure that information on best practices and culturally relevant research findings reaches the broadest possible international audience and stakeholders.
