Journal of Zoonotic Diseases is an authoritative, double blind peer-reviewed journal providing basic and applied research on diseases transmitted to humans by invertebrate vectors or non-human vertebrates. The Journal publishes original articles, review articles, short communications reporting clinical and basic research studies, case studies, clinical trials, etc. of significant scientific and ethical standards and focusing on all aspects of zoonotic diseases including geographic, seasonal, and other risk factors that influence the transmission, diagnosis, management, and prevention of this group of infectious diseases, and identifies global trends that have the potential to result in major epidemics(immediately open access after publication).

Zoonotic diseases including geographic, seasonal, and other risk factors that influence the transmission, diagnosis, management, and prevention of this group of infectious diseases, and identifies global trends that have the potential to result in major epidemics


 New knowledge on pathogens (viruses, bacteria, protozoa, helminthes, fungi and prions) and on host-pathogen interactions. Papers elucidating molecular mechanisms of interactions between hosts and disease agents are highly appreciated.

Immunity to pathogenic micro-organisms and systemic and mucosal immunology of infected organisms. This topic encompasses fundamental studies on the immune system of animals. The development and evaluation of new vaccines against pathogens will be considered.

Epidemiological papers should provide new knowledge on pathogen-host interactions and/or host-population interactions related to infectious diseases. Manuscripts dealing with spread and/or transmission dynamics of infectious diseases will be favored. Studies using mathematical modeling and developing or applying new epidemiological methods will be welcomed if they are based on a biological application. Descriptive epidemiological studies, meta-analyses and studies providing information of geographically limited interest will be considered.

 The audience of this journal might be veterinary and medical scientists, infectious disease specialists, virologists, public health researchers among others working in research institutes, universities, governmental organizations, private agencies, and pharmaceutical industry
