Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

Now that the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly spread around the world in 2020, theoreticians and modelers can help us to make substantial contributions to explain the virus transmission dynamics. Currently, there are many open questions about this novel coronavirus, such as the dynamics of infection, reinfection, climate effects, fatality rate, etc. This Special Issue will collect timely papers on modeling studies concerning the biological, epidemiological, immunological, molecular, and virological aspects of COVID-19. This Special Issue aims to bring together theoreticians, mathematical modelers, biophysicists, biologists, and medical doctors to improve our understanding of the disease by using several approaches.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
