About the Journal

International Journal of Virus Studies is a peer-reviewed open-access journal launched in 2023 that aims to publish high-quality research on all aspects of viruses, including their biology, genetics, pathogenesis, epidemiology, evolution, and control. The journal is dedicated to promoting the understanding of viral infections and their impact on human and animal health, as well as the development of effective strategies for the prevention and treatment of viral diseases. The International Journal of Virus Studies welcomes original research articles, review articles, short communications, and letters to the editor. All manuscripts submitted to the journal are subject to rigorous peer review by experts in the field. The journal also publishes special issues and supplements on specific topics of interest, as well as conference proceedings.
