Members of the Board of Scientific Reviewers of the American Journal of Veterinary Research play a vital role in the peer review of manuscripts submitted for publication and in assisting the editors in maintaining the high standards of the journal.
During its September 2003 meeting, the AVMA Council on Research's Committee on the AJVR will make appointments to the AJVR Board of Scientific Reviewers. Every year, the committee selects 20 to 25 individuals representing a variety of subject areas to serve on the board.
Readers who wish to be considered for appointment to the AJVR Board of Scientific Reviewers should contact Dr. Kurt Matushek at the AVMA office for an application form. Completed application forms must be returned by Aug. 15, 2003. Appointments are for a three-year term; new appointments will become effective Jan. 1, 2004. Individuals appointed to the board will use the AVMA's new online system for manuscript peer review.
