Original research from all disciplines of veterinary interest will be considered. VRO is an Open Access journal of the British Veterinary Association.

Publishing procedures are built around rapid peer review and continuous publication, with research being published online as soon as the article is ready. Authors are asked to pay article processing charges on acceptance; the ability to pay does not influence editorial decisions.
