Journal History

Editorial Mission

The purpose of Acta Scientiae Veterinariae [formerly Arquivos da Faculdade de Veterinária UFRGS] is to publish articles of interest to animal health investigators, veterinary practitioners and other professionals related to Veterinary Medicine.

Focus and Scope

ASV is concerned with papers dealing with all aspects of disease prevention, clinical and internal medicine, pathology, surgery, epidemiology, immunology, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, in addition to fundamental research in physiology, biochemistry, immunochemistry, genetics, cell and molecular biology applied to the veterinary field and as an interface with public health.

The submission of a manuscript implies that the same work has not been published and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The manuscripts should be first submitted online to the Editor. There are no page charges, only a submission fee.
