Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

In this Topical Collection of Viruses, we offer a platform to submit original research articles on the very latest themes in virology. In particular, we encourage submissions concerning recently identified strains with the potential to pose a widespread threat to animals, crops or public health. With a rapid publication time of 40 days, Viruses is uniquely poised for rapid dissemination of such knowledge.
