Author Guidelines

Article types:

Acta Veterinaria Indonesiana accepts and publishes articles in the form of research, reviews, case studies and brief communications:

1. The research article is a complete review of a research activity or research section with a complete study of topics, containing research or observations that meet scientific principles including experimental design and adequate statistical analysis. The study should meet the bioethics aspects of animal research and welfare. Epidemiological studies and studies of data in the past have fallen into the category of research texts, which must satisfy adequate scientific principles and statistical analysis.

2.  The review article is a comprehensive, critical-analytical literature review that provides current information on a topic, or contains forward-looking views of a subject. The review article should provide information from previous studies in full in the form of facts or existing data, submit analysis and critical review of the author to the collection of facts or data, and summarize it into an acceptable view or a which should be used for development in the future. The authors of review articles are preferable to those who do have expertise in their respective fields which is shown by contributions already made in the form of published policies or writings. Teaching review articles in certain topics are still acceptable if deemed necessary.

3. The case study article is a report of an event or case in the clinical, pathological and other fields deemed necessary to be published but not sufficient to be written in the form of a research paper. Case studies that provide new information or that may contribute to the existing literature take precedence.

4. Short communication articles, just like case studies, are written about a relatively new idea or research result but are not eligible for publication in the form of research articles. Short communication articles that contain information and useful for scientific or application development take precedence.
