JGV, a dynamic journal at the forefront of virology today, attracts an international audience and publishes over 3000 pages of rigorously peer-reviewed, high-calibre research from around the world.

The diverse scope of the journal, which reflects the evolving nature of virology today, includes topics on all aspects of animal, plant, insect, bacterial and fungal viruses, transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, molecular biology and immunology, virus–host interactions and antiviral compounds.

JGV is published monthly and is available in print or online. Our journals are published online with HighWire Press, in both full HTML and as downloadable PDFs. Features include journal cross-linking, eTOCS and supplementary data. The complete archive available back to 1967 is available online.

Journal subscriptions are available in two formats, either Online Only or Print and Online. SGM operates a tiered pricing structure. For more information please visit our subscriptions page.

The Journal's Editorial Board ensures high standards of peer review. Below, Professor Richard Elliott, former Editor-in-Chief of JGV, explains the benefits of submitting your paper to this journal.
