Once you have filled in your template please register, login and submit your paper to the Veterinary Evidence journal via Editorial Manager, our online submission system:


Submission checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines:

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it with another journal for consideration.
  2. The submission has been written using the appropriate template.
  3. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the relevant template.
  4. The authors understand Veterinary Evidence is an open access and open peer reviewed journal.
  5. Authors have read, understood and signed the declaration statement on the relevant template.




Withdrawing a paper

Author’s may request to withdraw a paper from the process, however, we ask authors to please consider the amount of time that editors and reviewers will have spent on the submission. Authors should discuss with us any reasons they may have for considering withdrawal, as we would like to do all we can to avoid the withdrawal of a paper and to prevent editorial/reviewer time to be wasted.

If authors decide to withdraw a paper they should provide the editorial office with an explicit request to remove the manuscript from the system no later than after the first round of peer review. This letter should be signed by all authors and it should detail the reasons for withdrawal.

Veterinary Evidence may consider withdrawing a paper from the submission process if there is evidence of misconduct. The outcome will be informed by COPE guidance. For more information please see our Plagiarism, data fabrication and falsification policy and our Corrections and retractions policy.
