Epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus is a globally distributed orbivirus that contributes significantly to the morbidity and mortality of a wide range of ruminant species. In the last 5 years, the scientific community has produced a number of significant findings regarding the geography, ecology, and virology of the virus. Studies of captive and farmed deer have increased our knowledge of the etiology of and immunological response to the virus; detailed entomological studies have uncovered new vector species; outbreak characterizations suggest the pathogen and vectors are moving northward, and new vaccine technologies promise to provide livestock industries with relief from this pathogen, which is a major source of production loss in some sectors. These discoveries invariably lead to new questions about epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus, its vectors, and the hosts that it impacts.
This Special Issue on epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus in Viruses will provide a multifaceted view of the latest research into epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus. I invite researchers of virology, geography, entomology, disease ecology, and veterinary sciences to contribute to this Special Issue. Both empirical and theoretically-based research are welcome, as are reviews and perspectives.

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 2200 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.
