Message from Francesco Annunziato (Chairman of the Executive Committee - European Journal of Immunology):

As the Chair of the European Journal of Immunology (EJI), an official journal of the European Federation of the Immunology Societies, my major aim is to make EJI the first journal of choice for the submission of manuscripts for all EFIS members and for immunologists in general. In order to realize this, it is important that EJI continues to publish manuscripts of high scientific impact, thereby increasing the impact factor of the Journal and benefitting all who publish there. It is for this reason that I would be grateful if you could send the following communication to the members of your Society; it is important that the community is aware of what EJI is able to offer not only in terms of publications but also in its support for young researchers.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Yours sincerely,

Francesco Annunziato
