Journals info

The AVMA publishes two peer-reviewed, scientific journals: the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Journal of Veterinary Research. Published twice monthly, the JAVMA provides reports of clinical research, feature articles, and regular columns of interest to veterinarians in private and public practice. News stories from each issue of JAVMA are posted online 10 days to two weeks before the cover date of each issue. The AJVR is published monthly and contains reports of novel research that bridges the gap between basic research and clinical practice in veterinary medicine and associated biological sciences, along with news of interest to veterinary researchers.
