Transboundary and Emerging Diseases brings together in one place the latest research on infectious animal diseases considered to hold the greatest economic threat to animals worldwide.
The journal provides a venue for global research on the sources favoring their diagnosis, prevention and management, and for papers on veterinary public health, pathogenesis, epidemiology, statistical modeling, diagnostics, biosecurity issues, genomics, vaccine development and rapid communication of new outbreaks. Papers include timely research approaches using state-of-the-art technologies. The editors encourage papers on socio-economic and environmental factors influencing the management of the bio-security threat posed by these diseases, including risk analysis modeling, as long as a science-based approach is adopted. Precedence is given to communications concentrating on novel science-based approaches to controlling transboundary and emerging diseases.
This international journal provides rapid publication of original papers, short communications, reviews, selected abstracts and outbreak alerts.
