Launch Of BMC Veterinary Research

19 years ago

1st June, 2005 00h00

BioMed Central today announces the launch of BMC Veterinary Research, the first international Open Access journal to cover all areas of veterinary science and medicine. BMC Veterinary Research will provide unrestricted access to this multi-disciplinary field where readership is currently restricted by the high subscription prices of specialist journals. The journal is now accepting submissions at BMC Veterinary Research has been launched in response to many requests that BioMed Central create an Open Access journal in which to publish veterinary articles. The journal is supported by an international Editorial board, composed of leaders in the field. Editorial Board member Professor David Eckersall of the University of Glasgow, UK, welcomes the launch of the journal, “BMC Veterinary Research will be greatly welcomed by the research community involved with advancing veterinary science and medicine. The benefits of Open Access publishing, which has proved so successful in human medicine and biological sciences, will now be available for the wide range of specialities that are encompassed in veterinary research. This will allow free and universal access via the internet to the latest results in important areas concerning animal health and welfare.” Members of the editorial board also feel strongly that Open Access is crucial for veterinary researchers around the world: “Open Access allows scientists and non-scientists from anywhere around the world access to information about the latest scientific developments. For developing countries it will have a very significant impact with respect to their ability to maintain an up-to-date scientific knowledge base, and therefore to implement state-of-the-art methodologies in livestock production in order to reduce poverty,” explains Professor Dirk Pfeiffer, Professor of Veterinary Epidemiology at the Royal Veterinary College, London. BMC Veterinary Research will consider original research articles in all aspects of veterinary science and medicine, including the epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of medical conditions of domestic, companion, farm and wild animals, as well as the biomedical processes that underlie their health. BMC Veterinary Research is the latest addition to the highly successful BMC-series of Open Access journals. Like the other journals in the series, BMC Veterinary Research publishes peer-reviewed research and methodology articles, all of which are immediately available without charge to any reader with internet access. From launch, all published articles will be included in PubMed, and copies of the articles will be deposited in PubMed Central and other internationally recognized Open Access repositories. The BMC Veterinary Research website is live, and the journal is now accepting submissions at For more information: BMC Veterinary Research Deborah Cockerill Tel: +44 (0)20 7079 4810 E-mail: [email protected] BioMed Central Grace Baynes Tel: +44 (0)20 7631 9988 E-mail: [email protected] About BioMed Central ( BioMed Central is an independent online publishing house committed to providing Open Access to peer-reviewed research.
