Welcome in News

Thanks to the past, best wishes for the future


A part of my professional life has been connected with the journal Veterinarni Medicina in the last 25 years. More than 8000 manuscripts were submitted and 1796 papers published. These papers have been assessed by more than 2000 reviewers. Hence, the reviewers, the members of the Editorial Board, and my daily collaborators Zdenka Radosova and Neysan Donnelly are those, to whom I owe my gratitude for collaboration. 
Professor Eva Baranyiova has been nominated the Editor-in-Chief. Her experience in this field, enthusiasm and diligence are well known and greatly appreciated. I wish to Eva and to the journal Veterinarni Medicina full success in coming years.

Acknowledgement of the language editor and the reviewers

The language revision of all published papers by Neysan Donnelly of the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, Munich, Germany, is greatly acknowledged.
There is no possibility of publishing a scientific journal without the invaluable help of reviewers. They assess the novelty of results and interpret them in the correct light, they teach hundreds of people for whom they usually remain unknown for ever. More than 500 experts from 40 countries have been addressed to review manuscripts in 2014. They have contributed enormously to maintaining the standard of the journal. Both authors and editors greatly appreciate their excellent help.
