Journal of General Virology – Scope


Journal of General Virology welcomes 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.

Articles in Journal of General Virology are published under the subject categories outlined below, and authors are asked to indicate the subject category for their article during submission:

  • Animal viruses: RNA viruses, DNA viruses, and retroviruses
  • Insect viruses: RNA viruses and DNA viruses
  • Plant viruses: RNA viruses and DNA viruses
  • Others: fungal viruses, prokaryotic viruses, and TSE agents

Journal of General Virology is indexed in Biological Abstracts, BIOSIS Previews, CAB Abstracts, Chemical Abstracts Service, Current Awareness in Biological Sciences, Current Contents – Life Sciences, Current Opinion series, EMBASE, MEDLINE, Russian Academy of Science, Science Citation Index, SciSearch, and SCOPUS, as well as on Google Scholar, ensuring maximum discoverability of your research.

Please contact [email protected] with any queries about the journal. All pre-submission enquiries are reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief without reference to previously submitted articles.
