The discovery of KSHV in 1994 has been a historical landmark in tumor virology and human cancer research. This remarkable finding soon attracted hundreds of research laboratories and thousands of virologists and oncologists to switch their research directions. To date, PubMed has collected more than 4710 papers on KSHV from numerous journal publications in the world. These studies reiterate the global fight against human cancers which will continue to receive great support from our tremendous efforts in searching for new tumor-causing viruses and in understanding the basic biology of tumor viruses. To celebrate the 20th years of KSHV discovery, we are very proud to publish a special issue on KSHV in 2014 in Viruses. This special issue will explore all aspects of KSHV, including updated reviews and research articles. We are looking forward to your contribution and to publishing your important discoveries in this special issue.
