Springer Open Access
  • Offers original contributions from all branches of research on viruses and virus-like agents
  • Covers virus infections of humans, animals, plants, insects, and bacteria
  • Includes descriptions of newly discovered viruses, plus virus structure, composition and genetics, and interaction with hosts
  • Also includes studies involving applied research
  • Provides with papers published under the header Virology Division News a forum for news and developments of relevance to the Virology community (i.e. virus taxonomy, classification and nomenclature, including minutes of virus taxonomy committees)
  • 97% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

Archives of Virology publishes original contributions from all branches of research on viruses, virus-like agents, and virus infections of humans, animals, plants, insects, and bacteria. Coverage spans a broad spectrum of topics, from descriptions of newly discovered viruses, to studies of virus structure, composition, and genetics, to studies of virus interactions with host cells, organisms and populations. Studies employ molecular biologic, molecular genetics, and current immunologic and epidemiologic approaches. Contents include studies on the molecular pathogenesis, pathophysiology, and genetics of virus infections in individual hosts, and studies on the molecular epidemiology of virus infections in populations. Also included are studies involving applied research such as diagnostic technology development, monoclonal antibody panel development, vaccine development, and antiviral drug development.Archives of Virology wishes to publish obituaries of recently deceased well-known virologists and leading figures in virology.

Papers describing sequences only will be considered for publication only if the genomic organisation derived from the nucleotide sequence determined differs fundamentally from those of typical members of the virus genus/family and if the biological significance and functions of certain sequence differences have been experimentally expressed. If a manuscript only describes the complete sequence of a virus for which no or only very limited sequence information is available, the manuscript can be considered for submission in the format of an Annotated Sequence Record (see link ‘Annotated Sequence Records’).

    Archives of Virology publishes original contributions from all branches of research on viruses and virus-like agents that infect humans and other animals, plants, insects, and bacteria.

    Coverage includes the broadest spectrum of topics, from initial descriptions of newly discovered viruses, to studies of virus structure, composition, replication, genetics, phylogeny, immunity, as well as of virus interactions with host cells, host organisms, and host populations.

    Submission of papers describing applied research in vaccine and antiviral drug development as well as diagnostics, including high throughput sequencing, bioinformatics and the discovery of new viruses are also encouraged

    In all cases, it is the quality of the research work, its significance, and originality that will determine acceptability.
