  • Introduction

    Zoonotic diseases are contagious diseases spread between animals and humans. They include all diseases that people can catch from animals such as wildlife, domestic animals, insects, primates, and birds. These diseases are caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi or other communicable agent, that are carried by animals and insects. The Editors will consider papers that focus on timely collaborative research in zoonoses. This issue provides publication of original papers, reviews, and potential discussion papers embracing this collaborative spirit. We publish an annual Report on Zoonoses in the worlds with summaries of trends and sources of zoonotic infection in humans, animals, food and feed-stuffs in all world. The report is likely to be especially useful to professionals dealing with zoonotic diseases, but should also give non-specialists an insight into the subject.

    Aims and Scope
    Zoonotic diseases brings together veterinary and human health researchers and policy-makers by providing a venue for publishing integrated and global approaches to zoonoses and public health. The Editors will consider papers that focus on timely collaborative and multi-disciplinary research in Zoonotic diseases. This issue provides rapid publication of original papers, reviews, and potential discussion papers embracing this collaborative spirit. Papers should advance the scientific knowledge of the sources, transmission, prevention and control of zoonoses and be authored by scientists with expertise in areas such as microbiology, virology, parasitology and epidemiology.
