Starting in January 2011, Springer will publish the Journal of NeuroVirology (JNV), a bi-monthly publication closely affiliated with the International Society for NeuroVirology. Previously published by Taylor & Francis/Informa, the five-year contract with Springer runs to 2015.
The Journal of NeuroVirology publishes high-quality basic science and clinical studies on the molecular biology and pathogenesis of viral infections of the nervous system, and reports on the development of novel therapeutic strategies using neurotropic viral vectors. The journal also focuses on articles covering non-viral infections that affect the central nervous system. Original research articles, reviews, case reports and coverage of scientific meetings are included. The editor-in-chief is Professor Kamel Khalili, Chair of the Department of Neuroscience at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, USA.
The International Society for NeuroVirology is a non-profit corporation established in 1998 as an international forum for researchers and clinical scientists involved in the study of neurovirology. The purpose of the society is to advance collaboration among scientists in all aspects of neurovirology and related disciplines in order to further knowledge in the area, and promote the clinical application of this knowledge.
