Scope and policy
The production, application and divulgation of academic and scientific knowledge, are priorities in universities, involving constant and rigorous pursuit of knowledge and understanding of basic research and specific problem solving with applied research, finding optimal, effective and economical alternative solutions to problems in the area starting with theoretic fundamentals.
Therefore, the disclosure of this knowledge must be an element on a local, national and international level; for it and with the social responsability that we commits us, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 2006 founded the journal CES Medicina Veterinaria y Zootecnia, which is a biannual online publication and with open access, which seeks to divulgate academic and scientific information in the areas of veterinary medicine and animal production.
Manuscripts submitted to the journal CES Medicina Veterinaria y Zootecnia, must be original and not previously published, therefore articles that are published or submitted for peer review to other journals in the local, national or international context, will not be accepted.
Pair review process
The evaluation process for all manuscripts postulated to the CES journal of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Husbandry is double-blinded, and the process is as follows:
The contents of the journal are the following:
Editorial. Space reserved for communications by the publisher.
Letters to the editor. Opinions on recently published discussion topics.
Responses from the editor and / or author (s) Space reserved for responding to readers queries.
Original article. A document that presents, in detail, the original results of completed research projects. The structure usually contains four elements: introduction, methodology, results and conclusions.
Reflection article. Document presents completed research results from an analytical, interpretative or critical perspective, on a specific topic using original sources.
Review article. A document resulting from a completed investigation, analyzing, systematizing and integrating published or unpublished research findings, on the field of science or technology, in order to account for the progress and trends of development. It is characterized by a careful review of the literature of at least 50 references.
Short article. A short document which presents preliminary or partial original results of scientific or technological research, which usually require a quick diffusion.
Clinical case report. Document that presents the results of a study on a particular situation in order to present the technical and methodological experiences considered in a specific clinical case. Includes an annotated systematic review of the literature in similar cases.
Subject review. Document resulting from the critical review of the literature on a particular topic, very innovative in its emphasis on depth. A thorough review of the literature of at least 50 references must be carried out.
Reflection article not derived from research. A document which presents research results completed from an analytical, interpretative or critical perspective on a specific topic using original sources.
Research summaries. Summaries of published or unpublished research of high relevance and scientific value.Space for academic and scientific diffusion. Consists of a document prepared by the author, in which ideas and concepts are presented on a specific academic or institutional topic.
Form and preparation of manuscripts
General rules of publication
Scientific names. To be written in italics, should be capitalized at the initial letter of the genera and lower at the initial letter of the species (e.g. Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli)
Drafting of document. This should be performed according to international standards for writing scientific papers, in terms of syntax, abbreviations, symbols, acronyms, atomic, zoological, botanical, and chemical nomenclatures, among others. You must use the International System of Units (SI). Names written in a different language should be in italics.
Type of units. The International System of Units (SI) will be used. You must leave a space between number and unit, except for the percent (%) and dollars ($) sign that will always be attached to the figure. Units of measure should not be used in the plural or use a point (e.g. kg instead of kg, kg.). When a unit of measurement applies to several numbers, it accompanies only the last value (e.g. 2 to 4 kg instead of 2 kg - 4 kg). The decimal comma must be expressed.
Citations and references. Quotations in the document should be numbered in superscript and in alphabetical order, just as with references
Conflicts of interest. We do not accept articles that have conflicts of interest between public and private companies, universities, or any natural or legal person.

Include full personal details (eg: 1Grupo INCA-CES, line of research is pathophysiology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University CES). If the corresponding author, you must specify the complete postal and electronic address (e.g. 1* Grupo INCA-CES, line of research is pathophysiology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University CES, Calle 10 No. 43 A 50, office 235, the Village Quarter, Medellin, Colombia. E-mail: email@example.com.
Abstract. This title should be lowercase and bold and it’s content not in bold. It should include the researched problem, objective, concise description of the materials and methods, results and conclusions. The limit is 250 words and must be an analytical summary.
Key words. This title should be in boldface, followed by a colon. The keywords must be in alphabetical order, and without boldface lowercase. There should be three to six words (not sentences) related to a topic. You must use keywords that are included in the MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) or other specific descriptor in the area of research.
Introduction. The title must be in lowercase and bold. It should contain the current state of knowledge of the subject matter, tested hypotheses, objectives and rationale.
Materials and methods. This title should be lowercase and bold. This section can be subdivided into subheadings. If you include subtitles they should proceed as follows: first-order subtitles in italics, not bold, and starting on the next line, a description of the procedure. Second-order Subtitle also written in italics and without bold, with a period and the description made immediately after.
All teams used shall include in parentheses the headquarters and the host city (e.g. Equipment X, Medellín). Always refer to the active and not trade names, if required to make a strict reference to a trade name, it should be cited in a footnote.
