Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Infectious disease outbreaks, in particular viral hemorrhagic fever outbreaks, have increased in frequency over the last decade. New pathogens have emerged and known ones have caused outbreaks elsewhere, increasing their endemic areas. There are only a few licensed vaccines and therapeutics available to date to counter these pathogens, and more efforts are needed to increase preparedness for known and unknown emerging infectious disease outbreaks.
In this Special Issue, we wish to publish reviews and research articles documenting the current knowledge about hemorrhagic fever viruses. We are encouraging manuscripts addressing aspects of human disease and pathogenesis, the public health impact and epidemiology, the ecology and potential reservoir species, as well as the mode of transmission, animal model development, and the status of countermeasure development including vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics.Dr. Andrea Marzi

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Microorganisms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
