Special Issue in Viruses: Enteric and Respiratory Viruses in Animals 3.0
The main topic of this Special Issue is enteric viruses that cause acute and severe diarrhea in animals in the agricultural and veterinary industry. Enteric viruses include mainly emerging and re-emerging Coronaviridae (PEDV, TGEV, PDCoV, SADS-CoV, Bovine CoV, Feline CoV, and Torovirus), Reoviridae (RVA, RVB, RVC and RVH, and Mammalian orthoreovirus), and Caliciviridae (Norovirus and Sapovirus). Diarrhea due to enteric viruses leads to deterioration of health, insufficient body weight gain, and deaths of young animals, resulting in huge economic losses. However, available information is still limited regarding enteric viruses, and hence, there are few effective strategies for control and prevention of enteric viruses, despite their significant economic impact. Recently, it has become possible to utilize reverse genetic approaches and cultivation in culture (enteroid and iPS) for these enteric viruses, which will prompt further elucidation of their molecular mechanisms and facilitate the development of treatment. Therefore, this Special Issue welcomes all types of manuscripts (e.g., reviews, research articles, and short communications), including novel findings with respect to molecular mechanisms, pathogenicity, host–virus interaction, cultivation in culture, and treatment of enteric viruses.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2400 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.
