Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is published alongside the International Virus Bioinformatics Meeting 2022 (ViBioM 2022) taking place in spring 2022 in Valencia, Spain.

This Special Issue will present articles covering computational approaches in virology, and we welcome any contribution within this cross-disciplinary field. Sub-topics may include (but are not limited to): systems virology, virus–host interactions, viral infections and immunology, virus evolution and classification, epidemiology and surveillance, viral metagenomics and ecology, and clinical bioinformatics.

We welcome original research articles and review papers dealing with the recent advancements and current understanding of computational technologies aspects of virology.

We encourage you to publish your work in this Special Issue and present it at ViBioM 2022. However, this is not an obligation for publication.

All papers should be submitted online at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/viruses. Please select the correct Special Issue when submitting your paper to 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 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.
