Individual articles published in Veterinary Research are now immediately accessible online on our website and via Pubmed. They are citable using their definitive reference which is given upon acceptance of the article.

The complete article in a PDF format and an abstract are first of all provisionally available (known as "Provisional article"), and later are replaced by the final version (after proofreading and lay out). The meta-data in the article is also sent to databases (Medline®, Crossref®) as soon as it is accepted, thus giving the article immediate visibility and indexation.

This system of publishing articles as soon as they are accepted with their definitive reference is possible thanks to a new way of referencing articles, the new Manuscript Managment System (MMS) functions, as well as the changes implemented in our production line.
