Journal of Virological Methods - ISSN 0166-0934
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.736 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.73 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 1.786 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

The Journal of Virological Methods focuses on original, high quality research papers that describe novel and comprehensively tested methods which enhance human, animal, plant, bacterial or environmental virology and prions research and discovery.

The methods may include, but not limited to, the study of:

  • Viral components and morphology
  • Virus isolation, propagation and development of viral vectors
  • Viral pathogenesis, oncogenesis, vaccines and antivirals
  • Virus replication, host-pathogen interactions and responses
  • Virus transmission, prevention, control and treatment
  • Viral metagenomics and virome
  • Virus ecology, adaption and evolution
  • Applied virology such as nanotechnology
  • Viral diagnosis with novelty and comprehensive evaluation

We seek articles, systematic reviews, meta-analyses and laboratory protocols that include comprehensive technical details with statistical confirmations that provide validations against current best practice, international standards or quality assurance programs and which advance knowledge in virology leading to improved medical, veterinary or agricultural practices and management.
