Journal of Veterinary Science and Medical Diagnosis organizes 9th Global Veterinary Summit, which is going to be held dutring November 16-17, 2017, at Las Vegas, USA.
Veterinary physiology is the science dealing with animals biological systems and functioning of these systems. Veterinary physiology includes the study of the various physical, chemical and Biological parameters underlying the biological systems in animals.
Veterinary pathology is the study of various diseases in animals and the underlying causes of the diseases. Veterinary pathology mainly focuses on the morphological recognition and functional interpretation of disease conditions in animals and defines the etiology and pathogenesis of the diseases.
Animal ethics describes the relationship between human and animals and how animals should to be treated. Animal ethics includes various aspects of animal rights, animal welfare, animal law, animal cognition, wildlife conservation, the moral status of nonhuman animals, the concept of nonhuman personhood, human exceptionalism, the history of animal use, and theories of justice.
Animal nutrition is the field of veterinary science dealing with the various dietary needs of animals. Animal nutrition also deals with the various diagnosis of nutritional problems in animals.
Animal Microbiology deals with the microbial diseases of animals caused by different kinds of bacteria, fungi and viruses. Animal Microbiology is of major interest due to their relation with humans (zoonotic diseases) and domestic animals.
Veterinary pharmacology includes the studies related to all the medicines used to treat the various diseases, disorders and injuries caused due to various internal and external factors. Veterinary Pharmacology includes the study of the influence of these medicines on physical, chemical and biological parameters of animal biological processes.
Animal husbandry includes the management and care of animals by humans in which genetic features and behavior are further developed for the advantage of humans. Animal Husbandry also refers to the practice of selective breeding and raising livestock to obtain desirable characteristics in animals and be at maximum advantageous to humans.
Animal diagnosis includes the diagnosis of animals for various diseases, disorders and injuries. Animal diagnosis includes physical examination, enquiry with the owner of the animal, veterinary history of the animal and paraclinical findings obtained from laboratory tests and radiological studies.
Structural and Functional Biosciences for Animals is the branch of veterinary sciences which studies the various structural and functional aspects pertaining to the animal biological processes. A sound knowledge of the various structural and functional biosciences for animals will help in diagnosis and treatment of animal diseases.
Treatment of Veterinary Diseases
Treatment of veterinary diseases includes the different aspects of diagnosis and treatment of various veterinary diseases which include bacterial, viral and fungal diseases, injuries caused due to external and internal factors and various disorders seen in animals.
Veterinary virology is a sub discipline of veterinary medicine and veterinary virology deals with the study of different viruses causing viral diseases and disorders and animals.
Veterinary immunization & Vaccination deals with the various immunization techniques related to animals and the major goals of Veterinary immunization & Vaccination is to improve the health and welfare of animals, increase production in livestock and prevent animal-to-human disease transmission.
Pre-clinical Studies in Animal Models
Pre-clinical Studies in Animal Models includes the various aspects related to the Phase I, Phase II, Phase III and Phase IV studies on animals. Pre-clinical Studies in Animal Models are used to test various drugs and cosmetic products.
Animal welfare is the study of the well-being of animals. Animal welfare is the branch of veterinary science dealing with various aspects such as longevity, diseases, immunosuppression, behavior, physiology, and reproduction in animals.
Animal Genetics deals with the research related to the immunogenetics, molecular genetics and functional genomics of animals. Animal Genetics includes the various aspects related to the variability at gene and protein levels, mapping of gene, traits and QTL, associations between genes and traits, genetic diversity, and characterization of gene expression and control in animals.
Veterinary oncology is a sub discipline of veterinary medicine dealing with cancer causes, diagnosis and treatment of animals. Veterinary Oncology is believed to be the major cause of death in animals.
Veterinary technology deals with the study of various procedures used for the medical care of animals. Veterinary technology plays a very key role in the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases, disorders and injuries in animals.
Veterinary medicine deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, disorder and injury in animals. Veterinary medicine covers both domesticated and wild animals with wide scope of conditions which can affect different species.
Veterinary Clinical Sciences
Veterinary Clinical Sciences includes various disciplines of internal medicine, surgery, theriogenology, oncology, cardiology, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and rural veterinary practice related to animals.
Animal breeding deals with the application of the various principles of genetics and biometry to improve the efficiency of production in animals. Animal breeding plays a very keyrole in livestock sciences.
2016 Journal Impact Factor is the ratio of the number of citations achieved in the year 2016 based on Google Search and Google Scholar Citations to the total number of articles published in the last two years i.e. in 2014 and 2015. Impact factor measures the quality of the Journal.
If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2016 then, impact factor = Y/X.
Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process):
Journal of Veterinary Science & Medical Diagnosis is participating in the Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) with an additional prepayment of $99 apart from the regular article processing fee. Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process is a special service for the article that enables it to get a faster response in the pre-review stage from the handling editor as well as a review from the reviewer. An author can get a faster response of pre-review maximum in 3 days since submission, and a review process by the reviewer maximum in 5 days, followed by revision/publication in 2 days. If the article gets notified for revision by the handling editor, then it will take another 5 days for external review by the previous reviewer or alternative reviewer.
Acceptance of manuscripts is driven entirely by handling editorial team considerations and independent peer-review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to regular peer-reviewed publication or a fast editorial review process. The handling editor and the article contributor are responsible for adhering to scientific standards. The article FEE-Review process of $99 will not be refunded even if the article is rejected or withdrawn for publication.
The corresponding author or institution/organization is responsible for making the manuscript FEE-Review Process payment. The additional FEE-Review Process payment covers the fast review processing and quick editorial decisions, and regular article publication covers the preparation in various formats for online publication, securing full-text inclusion in a number of permanent archives like HTML, XML, and PDF, and feeding to different indexing agencies.
