Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology is the official journal of the Brazilian College of Veterinary Parasitology (CBPV). The journal is a quarterly publication that covers topics on helminthes, protozoans, and arthropods as well as other related subjects. Manuscripts can be submitted in English by researchers from any country regardless of CBPV affiliation. The Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology offers free online access to all its archives dating back to 1992, which was its first year of publication.
The Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology accepts articles that focus primarily on animal parasites. Authors are required to send a signed cover letter that states that the entire manuscript is an unpublished original article. If the abstract of the manuscript has been presented in scientific meetings but has not been submitted for publication in other journals, this should be stated in the signed cover letter as well.
Author consent forms for manuscripts that have more than one author are required, to ensure that all authors agree with the publication. All authors should have made substantial contributions to the design of the study, acquisition of the data, analysis and interpretation of the data, and drafting of the article, and should have given final approval of the version to be submitted. Collaborators who did not actively participate in the process described above may be listed in the Acknowledgments section. Researchers who provided technical support or suggestions or a department head who made the research work possible should be acknowledged. Manuscripts with a number of authors that do not seem justifiable may have their experimental research protocol reviewed by our assistant scientific editors.
Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology accepts manuscripts as Full Articles, Research Notes, and Review Articles. Review Articles are submitted by experts under the editors’ request. Unsolicited review articles will not be accepted but the editors or assistant scientific editors may accept suggestions for a review topic.
Peer review process
The reviewer should fill out the RBPV’s evaluation form, which is available in the online submission system (http://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/rbpv-scielo). The author will receive evaluations from at least two of the reviewers selected and will receive the evaluation forms and possible corrections made directly in the text. The reviewer may then correct the article again, if necessary.
The articles submitted must undergo English-language revision, done by reviewers accredited by the RBPV (http://cbpv.org.br/rbpv/revisoes_traducoes.php). Likewise, the certificate of English-language revision should be sent together with the submitted article. The authors will be expected to bear the costs of the revision. We would remind authors that the RBPV does not pass on to them the per-page cost of publishing their studies. If the requirements of the submission process are not followed, the study will not enter the evaluation process.
Transfer of author’s rights:
At the time of submission, the article must be accompanied by a formal letter signed by all the authors, in which they all agree with the submission and, if approved, publication of the article only in the RBPV.
Experiments using animals should be conducted following the Brazilian College of Animal Experimentation guidelines (http://www.cobea.org.br). Articles should include the protocol number approved by the Animal Ethics Committee.
The following guidelines should be followed during manuscript preparation:
All articles should be submitted in United States English. Always use concise and impersonal language. Footnotes should be placed at the bottom of the corresponding page and numbered with Arabic numerals in an ascending order. All manuscripts should be typed in Times New Roman font, size 12, page setup with 2.5-cm top and bottom margins, 3-cm left and right margins, and 1.5-cm line spacing. All pages should be numbered. Full Articles should have a maximum of 15 pages and Research Notes should have a maximum of 5 pages in the final layout. All tables and illustrations should be presented separately from the main text body and attached to the final manuscript without captions. The related captions should be included in the text after the References. When submitting your article, please send an e-mail with the deposit slip attached: http://www.scielo.br/rbpv. It is the authors’ responsibility to make sure that accepted papers are reviewed by one of the English language reviewers certified by RBPV. Full Articles should be structured as follows: Original Title, Translated Title, Author(s), Affiliations, Abstract (Keywords), Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions (or a combination of the last three), Acknowledgements (optional), and References. Research Notes should follow the same structure as described above but they can be presented as a continuous stream of body text with no need to include headings. Novelty and originality that bring to light new significant findings are expected.
