Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent pandemic has been a subject of debate all over the world and has affected the way of life, mobility, and socioeconomic patterns of different countries. The onus lies on us as researchers to devise modeling approaches to address the current challenges and better prepare humanity for future epidemics. This Special Issue aims to bring together articles that address how to better prepare for future epidemics by analyzing and simulating public health data which will bring about nowcasting, hindcasting or forecasting of infectious diseases dynamics so as to better guide public health experts and decision makers. We welcome scholars in relevant fields to submit original research articles and reviews. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Artificial Intelligence for detection of, responses to, and mitigation of emerging epidemics;
  • Applications for optimal control of emerging infectious diseases;
  • Epidemics, ethics and uncertainty: the roles of public health experts and modelers;
  • Mobility, geographical locations and socioeconomic factors that influence the predictive modeling of epidemics;
  • The role of robust public health data in predictive modeling;
  • Predictive modeling methods and applications to epidemic data.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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 2700 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.
