Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases in Developing Countries Special Issue
Guest Editors: Muhammad Munir and Mikael Berg
In the last decade, a significant increase in the emergence of infectious diseases has been observed. Several of these pathogens, such as Influenza, Corona, Hanta, Ebola viruses and Borreliosis, have public health implications whereas Peste des Petits Ruminants and Schmallenberg viruses represent a transboundary threat to ruminant production. This increased incidence of infectious diseases is a complex interface of host-pathogen-environment, and is influenced by international trade and the changing distribution of disease vectors. These diseases also have important implications for wildlife conservation, as the introduction of a novel disease could easily wipe out a small, isolated population, either in nature or in captivity. Included within One World, One Health is the “spillover” of diseases between wild and domestic animals and humans.
This special online issue of Transboundary and Emerging Diseases on “Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases in Developing Countries” invites original articles, critical reviews, and expert commentaries on all aspects of emerging pathogens in developing countries. Scope includes, but is not limited to, disease economics, molecular epidemiology and diagnosis, pathobiology, host immune response, vaccines and therapeutics.
The manuscript should be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tbed by 1st December 2013. After logging into ScholarOne Manuscripts as an author, it is important to choose “Emerging Diseases in Developing Countries” from the drop-down menu of the manuscript type. All published articles will be freely available online and there will be no article processing charges for authors.
You are welcome to discuss any ideas with the guest editor (Muhammad Munir, email@example.com) for possible inclusion in this issue.
For any question regarding the online submission please contact Iduna Haus, Editorial Assistant, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rapid Communications are concise but complete descriptions of a limited investigation of a newly emerging pathogen or disease situation of high importance for either or both animal and human health. Rapid Communications are published online on an accelerated turnover to ensure fast dissemination of the content, reflecting the importance of the topic.
