Symposium: Tungiasis in Africa – a highly neglected insect-borne disease with growing importance in resource poor communities
Tungiasis, a parasitic skin disease caused by sand fleas (Tunga penetrans), is among the most neglected tropical diseases. The parasite has hardly received attention by entomologists for decades, resulting in a poor understanding of the disease ecology. This symposium aims to create awareness and generate interest in this debilitating zoonotic disease by presenting most recent research findings from Africa. Tungiasis control requires a ‘One Health’ approach, consequently we will invite experts from multiple disciplines to share their expertise and to highlight important knowledge gaps.
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
