Present and Future Perspectives to Combat the Deadly Corona Virus
Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can range from mild to lethal. Mild illnesses include some cases of the common cold (which is caused also by certain other viruses, predominantly rhinoviruses), while more lethal varieties can cause SARS, MERS, and COVID-19. Symptoms in other species vary: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea. There are as yet no vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.
The Journal of Antivirals & Antiretrovirals (JAA) paves the way to discovery and development of antiviral drugs, compounds, and clinical methods to prevent viral infections. Importantly, JAA provides the opportunity to inform researchers, clinicians, and others working in the field of antiviral drugs and therapies.
As Viruses are one of the major scope of our journal and Corona viruses are the emerging and trending topic, our Guest Editor “Dr. Anuj Tewari” has coined a Special Issue titled “Present and Future Perspectives to Combat the Deadly Corona Virus”
Proposals are invited from all recognised experts in Virology for creating special issues that fall within the scope of Viruses.
Special issue articles can include both original unpublished research articles and review articles related to the specific theme.
Manuscripts will be accepted for publishing in the special issue only after getting approved by the peer review committee [selected by the guest editor(s)].
All the articles in special issues should strictly adhere to journal style and formatting.
Each special issue can be created with 10-15 articles.
Submission should be accompanied by a cover letter with reference to the concerned special issue theme.
Accepted manuscripts submitted before the deadline will be published within the given timeframe for the respective journal publication.
Once accepted and published, all special issues will be released under an open access system through Longdom Publishing International and will be freely available for reading, downloading, and printing.
