Veterinary Research Forum reserves the right to reject any manuscript. All the manuscripts submitted to the journal are subject to review. Manuscripts are reviewed initially by a VRF scientific editor. Those with insufficient priority for publication are rejected promptly. Manuscripts considered for publication are sent to a minimum of 3 experts for external review. Identity of reviewers and authors are kept confidential. Authors are expected to respond to reviewer comments and make appropriate revisions within 30 days. Revised manuscripts may be re-reviewed. Manuscripts that pass review are accepted for publication provided that authors respond meaningfully to questions and concerns raised by a VRF scientific editor. Authors should note that a previously rejected manuscript by VRF would not be re-evaluated.
