Basic information

The Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins including Tropical Diseases (JVATiTD) is an open access interdisciplinary publication, dedicated to research on all aspects of toxins, venomous animals and their derivative products. The journal also welcomes submissions related to tropical diseases with a focus on infectious diseases, parasitology and immunology.
JVATiTD is the official journal of the Centro de Estudos de Venenos e Animais Peçonhentos (CEVAP), a translational research unit of Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP).

Founded by CEVAP in 1995 as the first electronic scientific journal in Brazil, JVATiTD transferred to BioMed Central in 2013. Its abbreviated title is J Venom Anim Toxins incl Trop Dis, which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.



Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. JVATiTD therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1170/$1905/€1405 for each article accepted for publication.

If you are a Brazilian author, the article processing charge will be covered by CEVAP. Authors should contact the Editorial team ( for the applicable code to enter at the payment page during the submission process. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. Generally, if the submitting author's institution is a member the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership, and no further charge is payable. In the case of authors whose institutions are supporter members, however, a discounted article-processing charge is payable by the author. For further details, see our article-processing charge page at A limited number of waivers for article-processing charges are also available at the editors' discretion, and authors wishing to apply for these waivers should contact the editors.
