The 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 helminths, 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 in which they declare that they were responsible for the whole process of producing the manuscript and that it is entirely an unpublished original article. If the abstract of the manuscript has been presented in scientific meetings, 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 need to have made substantial contributions to the study design, data acquisition, data analysis and interpretation, and drafting of the article, and need to 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 Acknowledgements 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 does not seem justifiable will be assessed by our assistant scientific editors in relation to the experimental research protocol.
The manuscript review process will follow the journal’s Editorial Guidelines and consider the editors’ and/or ad hocreviewer’sopinions. The Editor-in-chief and assistant scientific editors may make suggestions or request changes to the manuscript but the authors are ultimately responsible for the entire text content. Articles that are submitted for publication will be reviewed by at least two anonymous reviewers, of whom one will be a foreigner. The reviewers will be selected by the editor-in-chief and assistant scientific editors. If the reviewers’ opinions are discordant with each other, the article will be sent to a third reviewer.
The Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology accepts manuscripts as Full Articles, Short Communications and Review Articles. Review Articles are submitted by experts on request from the editors. 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 reviewers, as statements on evaluation forms and possibly as corrections made directly in the text. The reviewer may then correct the article, if necessary. After the manuscript has been accepted by the ad hoc reviewers, but before it is sent for the authors’ responses, it will undergo a final analysis by one of the assistant scientific editors. It should be noted that the assistant scientific editors have autonomous authority to suggest corrections and/or reject publication of an article, even if the reviewers have already approved it.
After the layout and editing processes, the assistant scientific editors and editor-in-chief of the journal will make any final corrections.
Transfer of author’s rights:
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.
