We are glad to announce the Special Issue “Zoonoses Associated with Animal Assisted Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Perspective”, to be published on IJERPH. Recently, we have witnessed a rapid accumulation of the scientific knowledge in many areas of work within the Animal Assisted Interventions (AAIs). However, the zoonotic risks resulting from the close patient-animal interactions that form the base of such interventions, are still poorly explored. This special issue will address this gap.
Papers highlighting any aspect of infectious (bacterial, viral, or parasitic) and behavioral zoonoses in this field are welcome and will be taken into consideration for the publication. We encourage authors of research or review articles to submit their material to this Special Issue. Papers will be peer-reviewed according to the journal’s criteria and accepted papers will be published in IJERPH as soon as practicable. All the papers will be also listed together as a Special Issue.
