The educational mission of Current Veterinary Literature – Companion Animals is to provide veterinarians with access to expert commentary and analysis on topical, clinically relevant, and practical issues in the field of companion animal care. CVL – Companion Animals contains in-depth review articles written by international experts providing insight into specific educational themes with clearly defined learning objectives. All articles undergo rigorous peer-review prior to being accepted for publication. Each issue also contains critical reviews of the recently published articles of most importance and relevance written by practicing vets.
Leading Articles: Our Leading Articles are in-depth reviews commissioned from renowned experts. They are written to provide insight into specific educational themes identified through collaboration with the journal's Editorial Board and the CVL editorial team. The topics are chosen in response to advances in the understanding, treatment, and management of companion animals, taking into account suggestions and feedback from readers and aiming to anticipate important issues arising in the field.
Clinical Reviews: The editors of CVL – Companion Animals identify the articles of most importance and relevance published in the international literature each quarter. They then prepare concise and critical analyses of these articles, discussing the research findings and explaining the importance of the results in a clinical context.
Editorial control is the responsibility of the Editorial Advisory Board, the Clinical Editors, and the Publisher. Before publication, all material submitted to the journal is subjected to rigorous review by the Editorial Advisory Board, Clinical Editors, and/or independent reviewers for suitability of scientific content, scientific accuracy, scientific quality, and conflict of interest.
