We would like to invite you to contribute an article for a Thematic Issue of Pathogens and Disease, a journal of the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) published by Oxford University Press.
The issue will focus on emerging and re-emerging viruses, a topic that is of clear importance in a world that is increasingly connected, and therefore where viral infections are often not contained in a specific geographic area.
To enhance the diffusion of this thematic issue, its publication will occur in concommittance with the European Congress of Virology, to be held in Rotterdam, Netherlands April 28th - May 1st, 2019. It is not necessary to be participant to the congress to submit an article. Both FEMS and OUP will promote the issue widely via their respective websites, social media, and through various digital and print media.
All submitted papers will be subjected to our standard, independent peer review. Authors should specify ‘Viruses2018’ in the cover letter.
You are welcome to submit either an original article, a commentary/ perspective, a full review, or a MiniReview. For instructions for authors please see the Pathogens and Disease General Instructions page: academic.oup.com/femspd/pages/General_Instructions
Please let the editors know as soon as possible whether you are willing to contribute to this Thematic Issue, and not beyond 1 July 2018.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 15 OCTOBER 2018
