Author Guidelines

A- Article Submission

Scientific articles prepared according to journal rules should be submitted using the online article submission system at https://eurasianjvetsci.org/submit/.

Eurasian Journal of Veterinary Sciences accepts articles in English. In addition, all articles should include title, keywords and abstract in Turkish (translation will be provided for foreign authors by our journal office).

Eurasian Journal of Veterinary Sciences applies the double-blind peer review system. Therefore, information such as author names, affiliations, current/permanent addresses, etc. should only be given on the title page. In all article types, the main text file should never contain details such as author’s name, institution, e-mail information, etc. The name of the file should not include information such as author's name, surname, institution, etc. The name of the file should be the same as the article title. Articles that do not meet this requirement will not be evaluated.

Articles should be written in Cambria in Word file format, 9-point font in the abstract, 10-point font in the tables, 12-point font in the article text, single spacing (each margin 2.5 cm) page layout. Abbreviations should be written as SI (standard index).

Authors should be aware of and take into account the issues listed in the "Ethical Principles and Publication Policy" section regarding scientific research and authors.

Eurasian Journal of Veterinary Sciences does not charge authors at any stage.

Authors are required to upload their article files to the system in five parts. Details on these are presented below.

1- Ethics Committee Report & Statement

If animals are used in the research, the research should be approved by the ethics committee and the relevant document should be uploaded to the system. For articles that do not require an ethics committee certificate, it is obligatory to apply to the LOCAL ETHICS COMMITTEES and to obtain a certificate of “the ethics committee approval is not required”. The decision that this permission is not needed should be taken with the decision of the local ethics committee, not with the personal opinions of the authors. Articles that do not meet this requirement will not be evaluated.

2- ICMJE Form

To avoid potential conflicts of interest, it is mandatory to fill out the international "ICMJE Form for Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest" (https://www.icmje.org/conflicts-of-interest/)

3- Copyright Agreement Form

Authors are required to upload the Copyright Agreement form in PDF format via the system when they submit their articles for publication. Copyright Agreement Form

4- Article Title Page

The title of the article (in Turkish and English), full names, addresses, ORCID information and e-mail address of the author responsible for the correspondence are written. Authors with different addresses are indicated with superscript numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.) and the corresponding author is indicated with an asterisk (*). ORCID information is indicated with superscript letters (a,b,c etc.) At the end of the title page of the article, the contribution of each author to the study should be stated separately and in detail. The corresponding author's statement regarding conflict of interest should be stated in detail at the end of the title page. If the study has been funded, this information should be shared on the title page. If the article has been presented at a congress/symposium before, this detail should be stated on the title page.

5- Article Main Text File

This section consists of the English and Turkish titles, abstracts, keywords of the article, and other sections according to the article type. Tables, figures and graphics should be included in the same file. In the main text file, there should be absolutely no details such as author name, institution, e-mail information, etc. The name of the file should be the same as the article title. The articles that do not meet this requirement will not be evaluated.

B- TYPES OF MANUSCRIPTS

Research article: They are original research articles. They should report scientifically sound experiments, provide a significant amount of new information and include the following sections:

- Title in English –Turkish

- Abstract (Stuctured) and Keywords in English – Turkish

- Introduction

- Materials and Methods

- Results

- Discussion

- Recommendation

- References

- Tables

- Graphics

- Figures

The abstract should be limited to 250 words.

Reviews: They identify existing gaps or problems by providing a comprehensive analysis of the literature in a field of study. They should be critical and constructive and make recommendations for future research. Unpublished data should not be presented. Abstracts are not segmented in reviews. The author determines the subtitles himself/herself up to the references. The subtitles should be written in italics and only the initial letter should be capitalized. In our journal, "Invited review" articles requested from authors with international publishing experience and recognition in a particular field are published.

Case reports: Case reports, common in health sciences journals, provide detailed information about an individual patient's symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment (including any interventions) and outcomes. They often describe novel or rare conditions that serve to improve medical care or highlight diagnostic approaches. The structure of case reports is different from articles. The case report should include an abstract (not segmented), introduction, case presentation, references, tables, graphs, figures. When submitting case reports, it should be ensured that the appropriate permission for publication (Consent Form) has been obtained from the owners of the patients included in the article.

Short communication: It contains current information and findings on relevant topics, but is less comprehensive than an original article. It should be prepared in the format of an original article.

Preliminary scientific report: A brief, interpretable description of partially completed original research findings. It should be prepared in the original article format.

Letters to the editor: Short, illustrated presentations of interesting cases or topics of scientific or practical benefits. The length of the text should not exceed 3 pages in total.

C- STRUCTURE AND FORMATING

• Conflicts of Interest

This part of the article should be specified on the title page.

In the title of this part, Cambria 12 points, bold red font color should be used, and in the content, Cambria 12 point black font color should be used.

Authors should declare all relevant interests that may be perceived as conflicting. Authors should explain why each interest may represent a conflict. If no conflict exists, authors should state it. Submitting authors are responsible for ensuring that co-authors declare their interests.

Conflicts of interest (COIs, also known as 'competing interests') arise when issues other than research can reasonably be perceived to affect the impartiality or objectivity of the study or its evaluation. See our publication ethics policy for more information. Authors should declare all potential interests - whether they actually have an influence or not - in the conflicts of interest section and explain why these interests may be a conflict. If there are no interests, authors should state:

"Author(s) declare(s) that there are no conflicts of interest related to the publication of this article".

The authors who submit the article are responsible for declaring the interests of the co-authors. Declared conflicts of interest will be evaluated by the editor and reviewers and included in the published article.

Authors should declare any existing or recent funds and other payments, goods or services that may affect the study. With or without conflict, all funds should be disclosed in the fund statement. The involvement of any person other than the authors who: i) has an interest in the outcome of the study; ii) is affiliated with an organization that has such an interest; or iii) is employed or paid by a funder, is involved in commissioning, planning, designing, conducting, analyzing, preparing or editing the article or deciding to publish it should be declared.

You may be asked to make some changes to your article as a result of your declaration. These requests are not an accusation of misconduct. The editor or reviewer helps you to protect your study against possible criticism.

If you are in any doubt about declaring a potential conflict, remember that revealing it later - especially after publication - may cause more problems than declaring it at the time of submission. Undeclared conflicts of interest may lead to corrections or, in the most serious cases, to the withdrawal of the study.
