Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Viral agents represent one of the main groups of pathogens causing morbidity and mortality in humans. Most of these potential agents cause major epidemics and pandemics, as we have seen recently with SARS-CoV-2. The prevention and control of viral spread are highly desirable. In this sense, we encourage the submission of manuscripts with promising results in the research field of antiviral and vaccines, including but not limited to (1) traditional inactivated or live attenuated vaccines, virus-vectored, subunit, viral-like particle, nucleic acid-based vaccine development; (2) new or repurposed molecules that can act directly against the viruses or modulate molecules of the immune system involved in the pathogenesis of viral pathogens of high clinical relevance.

We look forward to receiving your contribution.

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.
