Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The genus Pestivirus, encompassing small positive-strand RNA viruses in the family Flaviviridae, comprises four viruses of very significant economic impact to the cattle, swine and sheep industries: bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV)-1 and -2, classical swine fever virus (CSFV) and border disease virus (BDV). In addition, a number of novel viruses have been detected in wild and domestic animals by isolation and/or virome studies, which appear to be related to the pestiviruses and may qualify as new pestivirus species. In this Issue, we would like to focus on studies aiming at establishing the pathogenesis of the pestiviruses and candidate pestiviruses, including transplacental infections and virus persistence. Research studies can also be focused on the epidemiology, development and evaluation of diagnostic assays, virus discovery, transmission pathways, virulence, clinical aspects and vaccines.

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 special issue 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. Viruses is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2000 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.
