Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Understanding the impact of a viral infection within an individual can be difficult, as the data are often sparse and obtained from sites other than where viruses replicate. Mathematical modelling attempts to piece together the available data, and infer more about the infection than can be directly observed. Within-host viral modelling has provided important information about many infections, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, and influenza.

This Special Issue of Viruses will present articles covering the mathematical modelling of within-host viral dynamics. We encourage submissions describing modelling of all viruses impacting humans.

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 papers will be 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. Viruses 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 1500 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.
