About Zoonotic Diseases


Zoonotic Diseases (ISSN 2813-0227) is an international, multidisciplinary, scholarly, peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes high-quality original research, review articles, brief reports, and perspectives offering new insights into any aspect of zoonoses. Zoonotic diseases are infections that are shared in nature between humans and other vertebrate animal species. Zoonotic pathogens include an array of bacteria, viruses, parasites, arthropod vectors, and prions infecting diverse species, including companion (pets, service) animals, livestock, and wildlife. Zoonoses are global threats to human and animal health security. Zoonotic Diseases intends to provide a forum for research on global zoonotic diseases, allowing the scientific community to publish manuscripts regarding any fundamental or applied aspects of zoonotic diseases.

Our aim is to encourage the publication of experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. Full details of experimental procedures must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. There is no limitation on the length of articles submitted to this journal.
