Special Issue "Snakebite – From Science to Society. Selected papers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018)
On 21 and 22 June, 2018, the Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden, the Netherlands, is hosting an international multidisciplinary conference on the impact of snakebites. Our goal is to engage people from different backgrounds; medical, humanitarian, societal and technical fields, research, industry and policy, to discuss the issues surrounding the problem of snakebites and to co-create solutions.
During the two-day conference, experts from around the globe will focus on snakebite from different angles such as antivenom development and manufacturing, clinical issues, socio-economic burden, prevention, logistics and frontier technology. For more info on the conference, please see the conference webpage: snakebite.naturalis.nl.
The Special Issue aims to bring together active scholars and researchers to present their current scholarly work on all aspects relating to snakebite, ranging from basic research into snake venom evolution to clinical considerations. Review articles are particularly encouraged.
For manuscript submission guidelines, please see below. The guidelines refer to an article processing charge of 1500 Swiss Francs, but if your paper gets accepted, the costs for publication will be paid by Naturalis Biodiversity Center, organizer of the Conference Snakebite - from Science to Society.
