“With more and more invasive and exotic species emerging, Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases is vital to staying ahead of potential threats that could cause devastating effects over a large geographic region.”
          Stacy Preusser
          Staff Biologist
          AWB USDA, APHIS, Wildlife Services

Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases is second to none as a valuable resource for the latest work on the transmission of disease by vectors.”
          Phillip J. Baker, PhD
          Executive Director
          American Lyme Disease Foundation

Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases provides diverse scientific content and continues to expand the user base thus introducing a wider scientific global community to vector-borne and zoonotic diseases.”
          E. A. Gould
          CEH Oxford

“As an endangered species biologist my work must account for zoonotic diseases when managing wild populations.  Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases is an excellent source that has the human-wildlife crossover data that is essential to me. There are other journals that cover wildlife disease only and others that cover human disease only, but Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases does a great job of integrating those fields.”
          Travis Livieri
          Executive Director
          Prairie Wildlife Research

"Vecto-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases is one of the most important journals that I routinely consult for my research and studies on arthropod vectors of human diseases."
          Dr. Marco Di Luca
          Department of Infectious, Parasitic and Immuno-mediated Diseases
          Italian National Health Institute (ISS)

"One of the greatest advantages of Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases is the broadness of its scope within the topic."
          Dr. Martin Pfeffer
          Institute of Animal Hygiene and Veterinary Public Health
          Leipzig, Germany

“I especially value the manuscripts which combine different disciplines and take an integrated approach to examining vector-borne diseases. The major contributions of authors from developing countries provides an excellent overview of what is being done in the field and what the current state of research is for the various diseases in a diversity of geographical regions.”
          Thomas Dorlo, MSc
          Division of Infectious Diseases
          Academic Medical Center
          Amsterdam, The Netherlands

“A truly international journal that fills a much needed void on emerging vector-borne diseases.”
          Theodore G. Andreadis, PhD
          The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station

“Approximately 75% of all emerging infectious diseases are caused by zoonotic pathogens, and many are vector-borne. Global trends suggest that the major epidemic diseases that will impact the global economy in the next 20 years will be zoonoses originating in Asia. Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases is absolutely essential to stay abreast of advances in this field.”
