About Veterinary Sciences
Veterinary Sciences (ISSN 2306-7381) is an international and interdisciplinary scholarly open access journal. It publishes original research articles, reviews, communications, and short notes that are relevant to any field of veterinary sciences, including prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, disorder and injury in animals. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research in as much detail as possible. Full experimental details and/or method of study, must be provided for research articles. Articles submitted that involve subjecting animals to unnecessary pain or suffering will not be accepted, and all articles must be submitted with the necessary ethical approval (please refer to the Ethical Guidelines for more information).
This journal covers almost all topics related to animal health and veterinary medicine. More detail about the journal and its scope is available in the first editorial (http://www.mdpi.com/2306-7381/1/1/1). Research fields of interest include but are not limited to:
Preference will be given to those articles that study comparative medicine. We wish to support original research that provides a broad and better understanding of “One Medicine” and “One Health”.
