The AVMA requires that authors of manuscripts submitted for publication in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association or American Journal of Veterinary Research complete the Copyright Assignment Agreement and Authorship Form. Each author must complete a separate copy of the form. The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring that completed agreement forms from all authors are submitted to the AVMA; manuscripts will not be considered for publication until a completed agreement form has been received from each author.
