Iranian Journal of Virology (Iran J Virol) is a peer reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of virology, including research on the viruses of human, animals, plants and microbes. The journal welcomes basic research as well as pre-clinical and clinical studies of novel diagnostic tools, vaccines and anti-viral therapies.
The Editorial policy of Iranian Journal of Virology is to publish all research which is assessed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to the scientific literature, and puts less emphasis on interest levels or perceived impact.
Iranian Journal of Virology will feature articles on human, animal, plant, insect, bacterial, and fungal viruses. The journal will also publish articles on molecular aspects of the control and prevention of viral infections with vaccines and antiviral agents and on the use of viruses as gene therapy vectors, as well as research on other agents such as prions. The approaches and techniques used are expected to encompass many disciplines, including molecular genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology, cell biology, immunology, morphology, genetics and pathogenesis.
All research articles must include appropriate Ethical Approval, Competing Interests and Author Contributions. Ethical Approval should be listed at the end of the Methods section and must include the board that approved the research, together with any reference numbers. Manuscripts lacking these sections will be returned to authors prior to peer review. For more information about manuscript sections, see our Instructions for Authors.
