Food and Environmental Virology adds society affiliation

Springer's journal Food and Environmental Virology is now the official publication of the International Society for Food and Environmental Virology. The new affiliation takes effect immediately. The journal, founded in 2009 by Springer, was accepted in January 2013 by Medline, the U.S. National Library of Medicine's bibliographic database.

Food and Environmental Virology publishes original articles, notes and reviews on research relating to the transmission of human, animal, and plant pathogenic viruses through the environment (water, air, soil, etc.) and foods. Topics include epidemiological studies, identification of novel and emerging pathogens, methods of analysis or characterization, studies on survival and elimination, and the development of procedural controls for industrial processes.

Nigel Cook, Editor-in-Chief of Food and Environmental Virology and Councilor of the society, said, "The society is delighted to work in partnership with Springer, which shares our vision of international cooperation and communication. This official journal will significantly further our aim of knowledge dissemination to address the ongoing challenges of pathogenic viruses in food and the environment."

Susan Safren, Senior Editor, Food Science at Springer, said, "We are grateful to Nigel Cook and commend him and the editorial board for building a successful journal in such a short period of time. I'm confident that our partnership with the newly formed society will not only strengthen the journal, but also enhance the society's mission in addressing critical issues in this field."

The International Society for Food and Environmental Virology aims to encourage research and knowledge exchange to improve the understanding of, and prevent diseases associated with, viruses transmitted via the environment and food. The society links researchers from academia with professionals from industry and policy decision makers, to promote research in the field and to cooperatively meet the ongoing challenges of food and environmental virology.
