PESQUISA VETERINÁRIA BRASILEIRA - a Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Research <http://www.pvb.com.br>, is a bilingual journal in the form of continuous publication edited by the Colégio Brasileiro de Patologia Animal (CBPA), in partnership with the Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro (UFRRJ). The Journal publishes original works of scientific contribution in broad sense pathology in three areas: Livestock Diseases (LD), Small Animal Diseases (SA), and Wildlife Medicine (WM).
The abbreviated title of Pesquisa Veterinária Brasileira is Pesq. Vet. Bras.
In the three areas, Pesq. Vet. Bras. publishes Original Articles, Critical Literature Reviews and Topics of General Interest. Case Reports are accepted only in the Wildlife Medicine area, only for clinicopathological descriptions of diseases yet to be reported in the scientific literature.
The opinions and concepts emitted are the responsibility of the authors. The Editorial Board of the Journal, assisted by the peer review, may suggest or ask for modifications in the text. The Author#39;s rights to the accepted papers are preserved.
A maximum of eight authors can only exceed for research papers involving three or more institutions. In articles with more than eight authors, each Author#39;s contribution must be present at the end of the manuscript.
Pesq. Vet. Bras. has been edited since 1981 and publishes subjects on natural and experimental diseases. The Journal publishes results from diagnostic investigations of animals natural and emerging diseases, especially those affecting herds in Brazil. The submission of topics on animal diseases related to public health is encouraged. In its broad sense, Pathology is the flagship of the Journal, including laboratory diagnostic, epidemiology, clinics, and others. Manuscripts on anesthesia, surgical techniques, animal husbandry, and nutrition (except for deficiency diseases or poisonings by any element or food additives) are excluded from this Journal#39;s publication interest. The target public of Pesq. Vet. Bras. are veterinary practitioners, pathologists, veterinary diagnostic laboratory staff, toxicologic pathologists, comparative pathologists, medical pathology researchers, and others involved in veterinary diagnostics and animal research across domestic and wildlife species.
