The New Zealand Veterinary Journal (NZVJ) is an international journal publishing high quality peer-reviewed articles covering all aspects of veterinary science, including clinical practice, animal welfare and animal health.

Aims of the Journal

To be the flagship publication of the New Zealand Veterinary Association, publishing evidence-based research by veterinary clinicians and animal scientists.

To provide a forum for the dissemination of research on animal welfare and the improvement of animal wellbeing.

To be a highly-relevant educational resource for veterinary and animal science professionals in New Zealand and overseas, including publication of special issues and state of the art reviews, and to inform the wider public on related topics.


The NZVJ publishes original research findings, clinical communications (including novel case reports and case series), rapid communications, correspondence and review articles, originating from New Zealand and internationally.

Topics should be relevant to, but not limited to, New Zealand veterinary and animal science communities, and include the disciplines of infectious disease, medicine, surgery and the health, management and welfare of production and companion animals, horses and New Zealand wildlife.

All submissions are expected to meet the highest ethical and welfare standards, as detailed in the Journal’s instructions for authors.

Publication options

Accepted manuscripts are published online within 3 weeks of acceptance and subsequently allocated to issues published bimonthly in January, March, May, July, September and November each year. Mean submission to acceptance time is less than 6 months.

There are no charges for routine publication, unless authors choose to make their article freely available online through the Taylor and Francis Open Select option.

All authors are able to distribute free access to an electronic version of their article to 50 friends, colleagues and contacts following publication. The Author Accepted Manuscript can also be made available on the author’s institutional or subject repository, after an embargo period of 12 months following publication.

Peer review policy

All submissions undergo initial editor screening and then are independently single-blind refereed, regardless of source.

At least two independent referees, selected by the editors, review each manuscript.

Following consultation with one of the members of NZVJ Editorial Board, referees’ reports are then used to determine whether the manuscript can be considered for publication or not. A final decision is made by the editors and a report is sent to the authors including the decision and recommendations for revision. The revised manuscript is assessed by the Editors to determine whether all points raised by reviewers have been addressed and, if required, a revised manuscript may be sent for re-review by the same or additional reviewers.

Referees remain anonymous, and are obliged to keep all unpublished information confidential. Referees are asked to state explicitly whether or not any conflicts of interest that could bias their opinions of the manuscript exist, and to disqualify themselves from reviewing specific manuscripts if they believe it to be appropriate.

Editorial policies of the NZVJ are in accordance with the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals published by the International Committee for Medical Journal Editors
