Objectives and editorial policy
The Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Medicine (=Revista Brasileira de Medicina Veterinária) - BJVM aims to publish the results of original research papers by Brazilian and foreign authors in all fields of Veterinary Medicine. This work should consist of research results not yet published and not under consideration for publication in another journal.
Scientific articles, reviews and case reports should be submitted electronically and preferably edited in English. Articles submitted in Portuguese will be considered in the first round of evaluation, if they are recommended for publication, they must be translated into English by a company accredited by the RBMV, and will require the presentation of the translation certificate to be considered for review by the ad hoc consultants and the associate editor In a subsequent round of evaluation. The BJVM permits the publication of two versions of the article: in English and in Portuguese. The costs associated with translation are entirely the responsibility of the authors.
The original manuscripts undergo an initial Internal Editorial Evaluation to ensure that the content of the manuscript is in accordance with the scope of the Journal and to verify that the manuscript format conforms to the guidelines provided below.
If considered appropriate, manuscripts are submitted for peer review in a double-blind review process (i.e. reviewers are not identified to the authors and vice versa). Prior to being accepted for publication, at least two expert reviewers will be consulted. In cases of divergence, a third expert will be consulted and the final decision will be left to the Chief Editor. Although the opinions and concepts expressed in the papers are wholly the responsibility of the authors, the Editorial Committee, supported by the Scientific Advisory Board, reserves the right to suggest or request any advisable or necessary modifications.
