Aims and scope
Virology Journal is an open access, peer reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of
virology, including research on the viruses of animals, plants and microbes. The journal
welcomes basic research as well as pre-clinical and clinical studies of novel diagnostic tools,
vaccines and anti-viral therapies.
The Editorial policy of Virology Journal is to publish all research which is assessed by peer
reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to the scientific literature, and puts less emphasis
on interest levels or perceived impact.
