Coronavirus: scientific insights and societal aspects

UPDATE (2020-05-07)
The journal has received numerous papers with the application of conventional epidemiological models (SIR, SEIR) to describe Covid-19 epidemic progression in different countries. To avoid the repetition of similar models and results, we will restrict the consideration of such works and will privilege other directions of mathematical modelling related to the immune response, pathophysiology, virology, etc.

The COVID-19 epidemic is provoking numerous questions at all levels. It also shows that modern society is extremely vulnerable and unprepared to such events. A wide scientific and public discussion becomes necessary. This special issue of MMNP will publish scientific papers in a broad range of topics related to coronavirus infection and epidemic, reports and data analysis, as well as more general prospective articles. The special issue will contain a mixture of invited articles, and spontaneous submissions. If you would like to submit an article, please visit the MMNP submission site. Please ensure you select the article type “Coronavirus: scientific insights and societal aspects”.

In order to accelerate the publication of papers, articles will be reviewed by members of the editorial board. The publication process will be fast-tracked as the timely availability of research is crucial to meeting and overcoming the ongoing challenges posed by the pandemic. Your article will be published in open access free of charge, under EDP Sciences’ “Subscribe to Open” programme.
