Special Issue "Hemorrhagic Fever Viruses Infection"
A special issue of Infectious Disease Reports (ISSN 2036-7449).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2023 | Viewed by 2483
Interests: ecology; evolution; epidemiology of high-consequence pathogens
Hemorrhagic fever viruses (HFV) are a group of high-consequence viral pathogens which can lead to multisystem syndromic disease characterized by acute febrile illness, bleeding disorders, and can progress to shock and death. While many HFVs cause relatively mild illness, some, such as Ebola virus disease can lead to multi-year and widespread outbreaks with high case-fatality rates. Other examples of HFV include Marburg virus, Rift Valley fever virus, Hantaviruses, Congo hemorrhagic fever virus, Alkhumra virus, South American Hemorrhagic fever viruses (Chapare, Guanarito, Junin, Machupo, Sabia viruses, etc.) Kyasanur Forest disease virus, Omsk hemorrhagic fever, and New World Arenaviruses such as Lujo and Lassa virus. While several key research efforts have revealed answers to HFV pathogenesis, much remains to be learned about how many of these agents aid in the understanding of their ecology, evolution, and epidemiology for future mitigation and countermeasure strategies.
This Special Issue will cover a wide range of topics focusing on viruses that cause hemorrhagic fever and aims to enhance current knowledge of these viruses, host-response, ecological hosts, and the resultant diseases or mitigation of disease. All types of articles will be considered for publication, including short reports, primary research articles, as well as reviews.
We look forward to your contributions!

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Infectious Disease Reports is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1400 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.
