The Journal of Immunology:
Over a Century of Excellence

February 1916 saw publication of the first issue of The Journal of Immunology (The JI). Immunology was just emerging as a field apart from the interconnected endeavors in vaccinology, serology, and pathology. The first name that the founders considered was The Journal of Immunity, but The Journal of Immunology prevailed by the first publication date. In the 1940s, the collective wisdom gave rise to yet another name: The Journal of Immunology: Virus Research and Experimental Chemotherapy. On January 1, 1950, the title returned to The Journal of Immunology a simple title that has endured for more than 65 years.
