30 Years of Virology Division News – find a complete list in our Journal updates


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 is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). The journal applies COPE’s principles of publication ethics to deal with potential acts of misconduct. Each submission to Archives of Virology is screened for plagiarism. When plagiarism is detected, a manuscript will be immediately rejected.

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
