Peer Review Process

The manuscripts will be evaluated by at least, two independent reviewers that work in the area, which the manuscript is related. The evaluation process will be blinded, when the authors will know the names of the reviewers.

The reviewers are all highly qualified researchers with a clear research activity and publications within the journal's area. The time for a full evaluation will be between 3 to 6 months.

The indication of the reviewers may be, but not exclusive, suggested by the authors. The names will be selected in a case-by-case condition. The editor will consider the origin of the suggested reviewers, as well as their quality of research and previous publications. It is advisable that the authors suggest names from outside their institutions and countries.

AVS will focus on the innovative character, and the level of insertion of the manuscript to the area of Veterinary Medicine. The documents will be evaluated by their national and global scientific impact and how the authors communicate to the academy. There is also the interest to comply with the insertion to the community, as a tool to extention work (optional).
