Journal of veterinary Health Sciences accepts Full length Research articles, reviews articles, Mini Review, Case Reports, Editorial, and Letter to the Editor, Commentary, Rapid Communications and Perspectives, Case in Images, Clinical Images, and Conference Proceedings. Research Articles
Research Articles are written based on the laboratory observations or research in the clinical settings following the standard research methods and techniques such empirical surveys by collecting data from a representative sample size. Research article critically analyzes the data/observations using appropriate statistical tools, tabulations, charts and diagrams to draws conclusions. Research articles must not exceed the word limit of 8000 and must follow the prescribed format ready for publication. The chosen classification will appear in the published manuscript above the manuscript title.
Review articles are also scientific observations, yet they can be written based on the existing research data published in various forms. For example, an author may review the cloning techniques in developing a lamb or a cow in the laboratory by analyzing a series of published documents or articles and draws conclusion. Review articles should be within the 6000-word limit. Review articles must follow the same format as research article. The article format is discussed below under the category ‘Manuscript Formatting guidelines.
Case studies are developed based on the exclusive study of a specific case or situation. A case study on a specific type of diseases in domestic animals of the tropical region during the rainy season can be a case study, as it discusses the various stages involved, and its application on animals and human before it gets approval. Case studies can be from 3000-5000 words.
Short communication is a small discussion of any given topic within 800 words and it generally would not follow any specific research technique. It rather observes any scientific concept that is published in the current or previous issue and expresses the writer’s views on it.
Editorials are expert’s opinions, which generally would not exceed 800 words. The expert, being an authority in the subject writes on the recent trends, developments, challenges etc. and observes/warns the readers on a specific issue. For example, a specialist in Animal food sciences may write on spread of SAARS type of diseases due to certain dietary practices on a section of population as an editorial.
Letters to the Editors
Letters to the editors are the reader’s perspectives, opinions and observations to the editor seeking clarity, questioning the validity, and making observations on the gaps in the research published on the current or previous issue. Letters must not exceed 400 to 500 words.
Perspectives are expert’s opinions on policies, principles, decisions of the government, its consequences on the people or society. Systematics and valid observations both by the experts and amateurs alike can be considered. For example, unethical practices in the dairy industry, where the farmers are injecting oxytocin, a banned drug to increase the milk production can be submitted as perspective, without exceeding 1000 words. Perspective generally don’t follow any format like research article, and it is a description of the writer’s observation.
Proceedings Proceedings are collection of abstracts accepted for presentation in the conference. Bibliographic representation of such proceedings adds value to the participant’s profile and academic indexing.
