Aims of the Journal
- To be the flagship publication of the New Zealand Veterinary Association (NZVA), publishing evidence-based research by veterinary clinicians and animal scientists.
- To provide a forum for the dissemination of research on animal welfare and the improvement of animal wellbeing.
- To be a highly-relevant educational resource for veterinary and animal science professionals in New Zealand and overseas, including publication of special issues and state of the art reviews, and to inform the wider public on related topics.
- The NZVJ publishes original research findings, clinical communications (including novel case reports and case series), correspondence and review articles, originating from New Zealand and internationally.
- Topics should be relevant to New Zealand veterinary and animal science communities, and include the disciplines of infectious disease, medicine, surgery and the health, management and welfare of production and companion animals, horses and New Zealand wildlife.
- All submissions are expected to meet the highest ethical and welfare standards, as detailed in the Journal's instructions for authors.
All submissions undergo initial editor screening and then are independently peer-reviewed, regardless of source.
There are no charges for routine publication, unless authors choose to make their article freely available online through the Taylor and Francis Open Select option.
