Focus and Scope

About the Journal

International Journal of Virus Studies is a peer-reviewed open-access journal launched in 2024 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.

Focus and Scope

  • Viral Pathogenesis: Investigations into how viruses cause diseases, including the study of viral replication, host-virus interactions, and mechanisms of viral-induced pathology.
  • Viral Epidemiology and Surveillance: Studies on the prevalence, distribution, and spread of viral infections within populations and the development of surveillance systems for early detection and monitoring of viral outbreaks.
  • Viral Diagnostics: Research on methods and technologies for the rapid and accurate detection of viral infections, including molecular, serological, and point-of-care diagnostics.
  • Antiviral Therapeutics: Studies related to the development and evaluation of antiviral drugs, therapies, and vaccines for the prevention and treatment of viral diseases.
  • Viral Vaccinology: Investigations into vaccine development, efficacy, and safety, including both traditional and novel vaccine platforms for viral diseases.
  • Immunology of Viral Infections: Research on the host immune response to viral infections, including the development of immunity, immune evasion strategies employed by viruses, and immunotherapeutic approaches.
  • Zoonotic Viruses: Studies on viruses that can be transmitted from animals to humans, exploring the factors contributing to zoonotic spillover and strategies to mitigate zoonotic disease emergence.
  • Emerging and Reemerging Viral Infections: Examination of newly emerging viruses, such as those responsible for pandemics, and strategies for preparedness and response.
  • Viral Genomics and Molecular Biology: Research on viral genomics, genetics, and molecular mechanisms underlying viral replication, evolution, and pathogenicity.
  • Virus-Host Interactions: Investigations into how viruses interact with their host cells and how these interactions can be targeted for therapeutic purposes.
  • Viral Bioinformatics: The use of computational tools and bioinformatics for analyzing viral genomes, predicting viral protein structures, and understanding viral evolution.
  • Viral Evolution and Phylogenetics: Studies on the evolution and phylogeny of viruses, including the development of evolutionary models and phylogenetic analysis.
