Contributions related to laboratory animals are only accepted for publication with the understanding that the subject is crucial for veterinary medicine and animal science.

Manuscripts written on the subjects of basic sciences and clinical sciences related to veterinary medicine, nutrition, and nutritional diseases, as well as the breeding and husbandry of the above-mentioned animals and the hygiene and technology of food of animal origin, have priority for publication in the journal.

A manuscript suggesting that animals have been subjected to adverse, stressful, or harsh conditions or treatment will not be processed for publication unless it has been approved by an institutional animal care committee or the equivalent thereof.

The editor and the peer reviewers reserve the right to reject papers on ethical grounds when, in their opinion, the severity of experimental procedures to which animals are subjected is not justified by the scientific value or originality of the information being sought by the author(s).

  • Manuscripts that are only of local interest,
  • Manuscripts lacking institutional or local experimental animal care and ethics committee report,
  • Manuscripts based on the research in which the animals were subjected to adverse, severe, stressful, and harsh conditions and treatment. Manuscripts against animal welfare.
  • Manuscripts that are not of high quality enough to encourage submission.
  • Manuscripts, the subjects of which do not attract enough attention in the field of veterinary and animal husbandry,
  • The manuscripts that do not suit the scope of the journal,
  • Manuscripts lacking novelty, insufficient experimental design, and methodology or having limited scientific data,
  • Manuscripts based on a research done a long time ago (the topic is out of date),
  • Manuscripts written by splitting of data derived from single research,
  • Manuscripts rejected by another journal of similar scope after peer-review,
  • Manuscripts published in another journal
