Peer Review Week 2016: recognition for review

2016 is the year of recognizing the efforts of peer reviewers and the key role of peer review in research. The goal this year is to promote the behind-the-scenes work of peer reviewers and share the value of their activities to the wider community.

The first Peer Review Week in 2015 was a great success, and we are delighted that it is being continued.

Our hope is that by building on the events and discussion around Peer Review Week, this critical issue will equally start to get more meaningful attention, and to push peer review up the science policy agenda.” – Cath Cotton,  OUP Blog

Klebsiella pneumoniae infection biology: living to counteract host defences

These infections are particularly a problem among neonates, elderly and immunocompromised individuals. This review summarises the tremendous progress that has been made to uncover the sophisticated immune evasion strategies of K. pneumoniae. The co-evolution of Klebsiella in response to the challenge of an activated immune has made Klebsiella a formidable pathogen exploiting stealth strategies and actively suppressing innate immune defences to overcome host responses to survive in the tissues.
