Aims & scope

Cough is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal encompassing the scientific and clinical aspects of both acute and chronic cough.


“Cough has been a neglected symptom of respiratory disease, but has received a lot more attention over the past 10 years, particularly from the assessment of cough itself and the basic pathways of the cough reflex. The approach to link clinical features to basic mechanisms is a more recent activity in this field, and is leading to the recognition of a chronic cough hypersensitivity syndrome. The last 5 years of Cough as a journal has reflected these changes and this realignment in cough thinking. We continue to welcome original work on any aspect of cough be it clinical or basic work, and it will be given the utmost consideration. We wish Cough to remain the main medium of expression of cough researchers.”
