Mumps is highly infectious and spreads rapidly in susceptible individuals living in close proximity. In the pre-vaccination era, the highest attack rate was among primary school children and most adolescents. Although immunization of two doses of the measles–mumps–rubella (MMR) vaccine is part of a worldwide childhood vaccination program, cases of mumps continue to occur annually, including outbreaks with thousands of cases reported. The reasons for this trend are still unclear. There is a need for further scientific evidence to work on preventing the emergence of mumps virus (MuV) infection.
This Special Issue provides an opportunity to publish papers on environmental research in MuV infection, as well as public issues with respect to MuV infection. The focus of this Special Issue is on the mechanism of emerging MuV infection; we emphasize interdependence between humans and non-human species in complex socio-ecological systems, and the environmental factors affecting MuV transmission. Authors are invited to submit original articles, systemic reviews and meta-analysis, and critical reviews and short communications addressing all the relevant issues to highlight any recent advance in MuV infections and transmission, and their impact on individual and public health.
The submission deadline is 31 October 2019. You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
