The Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology is the official journal of the Brazilian College of Veterinary Parasitology (CBPV). The journal uses a continuous flow system for article publication. Each volume consists of 4 editions (numbers) per year, i.e. the periodicity is quarterly. The journal covers topics on helminths, protozoans, arthropods and agents transmitted by 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.
Articles submitted to the Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology (RBPV) need to be original scientific articles that essentially address matters relating to parasites of animals of any kind.
Original Article: this type of article reports data from original research that has not been published in any other periodical.
Short Communication: for this category, articles submitted will only be accepted if they have a high degree of novelty and originality, bringing new results of evident importance. The decision on whether the submission may proceed will be made by the editor-in-chief.
Review Article: submission of these articles is conditional on submission and invitation from the editor-in-chief. Reviews that were not requested will be assessed by the editor-in-chief or assistant scientific editors provided that they were written by researchers who are specialists in the topic chosen.
The manuscripts submission is online by ScholarOne (https://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/rbpv-scielo). The corresponding author needs to supply an ORCID ID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID, http://orcid.org/) at the time of submission, which should be inserted in the user’s profile in the submission system. We recommend that this should also be done for the coauthors.
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they declare that they were responsible for the whole process of producing the manuscript and that it is entirely an unpublished original article.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. 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. Collaborators who did not actively participate in the process described above may be listed in the Acknowledgements section. Contributions made by individuals or institutions who provided technical assistance or suggestions, or corrections or suggestions relating to writing the paper, or who in some other manner collaborated in developing the work, can be acknowledged.The articles submitted must undergo English-language revision, done by reviewers accredited by the RBPV (http://rbpv.org.br/rbpv/guia-do-autor). A 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. If one of the coauthors is a non-Brazilian who is a native speaker of the English language, this author should review the English-language content of the study. The corresponding author needs to send correspondence to the journal confirming that this review was done by one of the authors who is a native speaker of English.
Peer review process
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. The reviewers will be selected by the editor-in-chief. If the referees give conflicting opinions, the article will be sent to a third reviewer.
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 authors need to address each of the queries raised or corrections suggested by each of the referees. 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. Also at this stage, if necessary, the manuscript is sent to one of the RBPV statistical method reviewers.
After the layout and editing processes, the editor-in-chief of the journal will make any final corrections.
Transfer of authorship rights:
If the article is accepted, the author(s) shall transfer their authorship rights to the journal. If any subsequent use is made of any parts of the text, figures or tables, the Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology (RBPV) must be cited as the source.
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. For non-Brazilian authors, guidelines for experiments on animals are also set forth in the "International Guiding Principles for Biomedical Research Involving Animals", issued by the "Council for the International Organizations of Medical Sciences" (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/guiding_principles_2012.pdf). These authors need to present the equivalent protocol number(s) for submission and approval of their studies.
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 be structured as follows: Original Title (english), Translated Title (portuguese), Short Title (english), Author(s), Affiliations, Abstract (Keywords) (english), Resumo (Palavras-chave) (portuguese), Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions (or a combination of the last three), Acknowledgements (optional), and References. 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. Short Communications should follow the same structure as described above, but they can be presented as a continuous stream of text without the need to include headings. Short Communications should be concise and limited to 3,000 words, and can include up to 3 figures or tables, combined. Not more than 20 references should be cited.
