Manuscript types accepted

The Editorial Secretary will consider for publication in the journal manuscripts, which describe original work not previously published and if accepted, must not be published in any other journal unless permission is received from the Editorial Secretary of this Journal. Four classes of manuscripts are recognized:

(1) Original research paper, which gives a concise account of the author’s work in one of the fields of veterinary and animal sciences . Original research findings are interpreted to mean the outcome of the scholarly inquiry, investigations, modeling, or experimentation having as an objective the revision of existing concepts, the development of new concepts, or the development of new or improved techniques in some phase of veterinary medical sciences.

The authors are required to give a brief summary of their articles not exceeding 250-300 words stating the objective of the work and its important results.

(2) Note, which are abbreviated articles. No abstract is needed for the notes. Notes focus on studies of limited scope, unique observations, or research techniques and apparatus. The length of a note should be 2 to 3 published pages.

(3) Comments and Letters to the Editor, which are intended to be preliminary publications of results which are believed to justify prompt publication. Letters contain (a) critical comments on papers published in one of the Society outlets, (b) editorial comments by Society officers, or (c) personal comments on matters having to do with veterinary sciences.

(4) Review papers, a review is not simply a collection of papers that are all centered on a common theme. Review papers should provide a synthesis of existing knowledge and give new insights or concepts not previously presented in the literature, or at least not with the same level of detail. The review should identify knowledge gaps for future research. An author should generally be allowed more freedom to provide his/her view on a topic in a review as the papers being reviewed are presumed to already have passed some level of scientific scrutiny by peers.

Manuscript format and structure

  • There is no page limit for manuscripts. The manuscript must be typed with 12 point Times New Roman font (Double space line) in MS Word 2003/2010.

Any abbreviations of chemical, biological, medical or other terms should only be employed when it is certain that they are internationally known. The full name must be stated in brackets when the abbreviation is first used. 

All biological, medical, chemical or other terms should be used according to the most recent recommendations of the respective international nomenclature. Enzymes should be given in I.U. (International Units), according to Enzyme Nomenclature (Elsevier Publishing Co., 1965). In the case of commercially obtained substances or reagents, when they are first mentioned in the text, the name and address of the manufacturer or supplier should be written . Products (preparations etc.) with a registered trademark should be marked with ®.

Names of micro-organisms and zoological names should be in italics in the manuscript.

  • Figures/Graphs: The manuscript comprises the text and a list of all figures and tables with their captions and titles in a separate file. Each figure, table, and bibliographic entry must have a reference in the text. All figures/graphs etc. must be in JPG format.

In case of web references, write the date of accession.


The names of periodicals should be abbreviated according to the most recent list of periodicals abstracted by Chemical Abstracts.

C (no mention of C).°For economy, abbreviations rather than words are to be used, such as: ppm, cm, mm, m, km, cc, ml, g, mg, kg, min, hr, m.p., f.p., cal, kcal, %, expt., Fig., 


Do not duplicate matter that is presented in charts or graphs. The symbols *, **, and *** are always used to show statistical significance at the 0.05, 0.01, and 0.001 level, respectively, and are not used for other footnotes. Spell out abbreviations on first mention in tables, even if the abbreviation is defined in the text (i.e., a reader should be able to interpret each table without referring to the text).

Figures and Graphs

Do not use figures that duplicate matter in tables. When creating figures, use font sizes and line weights that will reproduce clearly and accurately when figures are sized to the appropriate column width. Screening and/or shaded patterns often do not reproduce well; whenever possible use black lines on a white background in place of shaded patterns. Color figures are acceptable and are the default of the electronic version. The data in the figure must be accurately represented in a grayscale version. For example, use symbols not just the differing line thickness to differentiate between data. Figures and captions should stand alone. Captions should explain the data rather than discuss the results of the data.

 After provisional acceptance

Upon provisional acceptance of a paper for publication, corresponding author will receive the email regarding payment of Article processing charge. Charges must be paid within 10 days as per instructions given in the email.

 Signed acceptance letter will be provided to all authors after payment.
Acceptance will be final after the payment of publication charge.
