The aim of Journal of Veterinary Research Advances is to improve and expand knowledge in the field of veterinary science. Research papers on a wide range of veterinary science related topics are published in the Journal of Veterinary Research Advances after being evaluated by peer reviewers.

    Types of contribution

  1. Full paper (original article): A full paper covers all aspect of report and the results of original research required for the precise description and interpretation of the work.
  2. Review article: Review article is written by scholar(s) and expert(s) in the field who has (have) already published at least 5 research papers on the same subject. In the review article, the results of published research are closely evaluated, merit and demerits are stated and suggestions for further improvement are to be provided. The editor of Journal of Veterinary Research Advances welcomes review articles; however, preliminary discussion with the editor regarding the subject and length of the article is advisable before submission.
  3. Short communication: Short communications are intended to rapidly communicate novel ideas and results in new and developing areas of veterinary sciences, but are limited in the level of performed investigations and are not good enough stuff to fill the requirements of a full paper. Short communications may be submitted to Journal of Veterinary Research Advances as such, or may result from a request to condense a regular paper during the review process.
  4. Scientific report: These articles deal with important issues to researchers/clinicians in all areas of veterinary science. These types of articles include a title page, summary, case presentation, results, discussion and references sections.
  5. Letter to editor: Letters on all topics related to the science and Veterinary practice would be considered for publication. The length should not usually exceed 350 words and may be shortened for publication. References should be given when necessary. Upto two photographs can be accommodated if appropriate and tables will occasionally be allowed.
