Viruses — Open Access Virology Journal

Viruses (ISSN 1999-4915) is an open access journal which provides an advanced forum for studies of viruses. We aim to help researchers present their cutting-edge findings and opinions in detail and have quick dissemination among their peers. Original articles, reviews, communications, conference reports and short notes are all welcome.

Viruses is covered by leading indexing services, including PubMed, Medline, the Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of Science), Scopus and other relevant databases. The Impact Factor (IF) for the year 2016 is 3.465. The American Society for Virology (ASV) is affiliated to Viruses and ASV members can enjoy a 20% discount on article processing charges as well as other benefits. Contact the ASV office for article processing discount details.

ASV members will receive 20% off registration to Viruses 2020 - Novel Concepts in Virology, which will be held in Barcelona, Spain February 5 - 7, 2020.


Journal of General Virology

Published by the Microbiology Society, the Journal of General Virology has been publishing peer-reviewed research for more than 50 years. We recognise the importance of virology as a unique discipline within microbiology, and actively collaborate with partners such as the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) to support the global virology community.

We welcome high-quality research and review articles that contribute significantly to the field of virology. We particularly welcome fundamental studies on virus replication, pathogenesis and virus-host interactions. We also welcome phylogenetic or epidemiologic studies, or studies that address clinical aspects of virus infection, provided that these lead to testable hypotheses and contain new information relevant to virus biology.

ASV members will now receive a 20% discount off article processing charges for publishing open access articles in Journal of General Virology (JGV). Contact the ASV office for article processing discount details.

American Society for Microbiology (ASM)

ASM's Journal of Virology explores the nature of viruses, reporting important new discoveries and pointing to new directions in research. Original research articles cover the viruses of animals, archaea, bacteria, fungi, plants, and protozoa. Among the key issues investigated are virus structure and assembly, viral genome replication and regulation of viral gene expression, viral genetic diversity and evolution, virus-cell interactions, cellular responses to viral infection, transformation and oncogenesis, gene delivery, viral pathogenesis and immunity, and vaccines and antiviral agents.

ASM is now extending their ASM member discounts to full ASV members for JVI individual subscriptions, page charges, article processing charges for optional open access, supplemental material hosting, and the purchase of reprints and e-prints.
