Veterinary Research has today published its first open access articles with BioMed Central and is now the flagship title in our expanding cluster of veterinary journals. With an Impact Factor of 3.58, Veterinary Research is ranked number one in the Veterinary Sciences category of the Journal Citation Report, and continues to be supported by the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA).
Headed by Editor-in-Chief Michel Brémont, Veterinary Research publishes novel research and review articles with a focus on animal infection, covering the fields of bacteriology, parasitology, virology, immunology, prion disease, and epidemiology.
The first articles published today include research from Dr Sebastian Knapp et al on the overwintering mechanisms of the bluetongue virus, and from Dr Gonnie Nodelijk on the effectiveness of a breeding programme using resistant genotypes to obtain outbreak control in scrapie infected sheep.
Veterinary practitioners and researchers can continue to look forward to many more outstanding articles from Veterinary Research that are now accessible worldwide free of encumbrance. For further information about the journal or to submit a manuscript please see the instructions for authors.
