Tuesday, 14 July 2015

The August issue of Transactions is now available online and includes two Open Access papers:

An original article by Adrian Mylne and colleagues on mapping the zoonotic niche of Lassa fever in Africa. This Editor's choice paper predicts that 37.7 million people in 14 countries, across much of West Africa, live in areas where conditions are suitable for zoonotic transmission of Lassa fever; information from the mapping approaches could be helpful in targetting surveillance or aiding diagnoses.

An original article on the global distribution of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, and the first robust attempt to depict the ecological niche for the transmission of this disease.

What else is in this issue?

In addition to a commentary by Clare Parsons on the West African Ebola outbreak; this paper was commissioned at our 2014 Research in Progress meeting; (NB the next one is on 09 December), there are three further orginal articles on antimicrobial resitance, malaria in pregnancy and Japanese encepalitis virus, and four short communications, including one from Editorial Board member Simon Brooker.
