Viruses is an open-access journal which provides an advanced forum for
studies of viruses. It publishes reviews, regular research papers,
communications, and short notes.

Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and
theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no
restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details
must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

There are, in addition, unique features of this journal:

* manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas will be
particularly welcomed
* electronic files or software regarding the full details of the
calculation and experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a
normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material
* manuscripts concerning summaries and surveys on research cooperation
and projects (that are founded by national governments or others) to
give information for a broad field of users.

Subject Areas:

* Virus, viruses, virion, virology, virological, viral, virologist
