The health of humans is inextricably linked to the health of other living creatures and to the health of the environment. This is perhaps best illustrated by infectious disease microorganisms, many of which 'evolve' in animals and/or the environment and at various times during evolution find a niche in humans. In recognition of the significance of the OneHealth concept, the two journals of the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) that publish on the health of humans and that of their environment, Pathogens and Disease and FEMS Microbiology Ecology, are teaming up to organize a joint thematic issue on the theme of OneHealth.
We hereby invite authors to submit their latest research for inclusion to a thematic issue entitled OneHealth for Life which will be published in Pathogens and Disease or FEMS Microbiology Ecology. We welcome all article types, including Research Articles, Mini Reviews, Short Communications, Perspectives, Commentaries, and Shortomics. Authors should specify 'OneHealth' in their cover letter to either journal. All submitted papers will undergo independent peer-review. Upon publication of these articles, a virtual joint thematic issue will bring together articles from both titles and will be promoted by FEMS and their publisher, Oxford University Press.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31 January 2017
