Call for papers: Spatial inequality, infectious diseases and disease control

This collection focuses on emerging infectious diseases in humans and animals, including the impact of antimicrobial resistance, and brings together research that investigates the relationship between spatial inequalities of all kinds and the impact and prevalence of these infectious diseases. This collection will also welcome papers that seek solutions towards disease control across areas with particularly unequal distribution of resources and opportunities.

Editor's quote

Dr. Mohamed Bakillah, Editor-in-Chief

Open geospatial data is an increasingly important paradigm that offers the opportunity to promote the democratization of geographical information, the transparency of governments and institutions, as well as social, economic and environmental opportunities. Open Geospatial Data, Software and Standards' unique feature is to bring together different disciplines that relate to the various forms of open geospatial data, so as to offer a unified view over the related issues and research advances.
