The abstract should contain an introductory sentence, a brief description of the research methods (up to 1–2 sentences) and main results (50–70% of the total abstract volume) and concise conclusions or prospects for further research (1 sentence). The terminology of the text should be relevant to international English language journals. So, the abstract should reveal the content of the article, making it clear without familiarization with the article itself. Use active rather than passive voice ("The study tested", and not "It was tested in this study"). The international databases to which your article will be submitted after its publication in the journal will not transliterate or translate anything, they will accept any variants of your last name, initials, organization names mentioned in the article, even if there are mistakes.
Keywords: 6-8 words (phrases), none of which duplicate words from the article title.
Address: organization name, full postal address, including the country name.
E-mail: of each author(s) of the article (required!).
ORCID: of each author(s) of the article (required!).

A full research paper should include the following sections: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, References.
Review paper may have different sections with arbitrary titles, but Conclusions and References are required.
Tables and figures – should be numbered according to the content of the article. Statistical and other details are given below the table body in the notes. Table materials and figures are placed in the text of the manuscript directly after they were mentioned first. All text elements in images (graphs, charts, diagrams) should, if possible, have a Times New Roman font, without bold type. In addition to placing them in text, all illustrations (photos, drawings, diagrams) have to be submitted in separate TIFF or JPEG files.
When returning the article for revision, the author is obliged to take into account all the editorial board comments and send the corrected materials to the editorial board within the indicated time. The Editorial Board reserves the right to correct and reduce the text. The authors are responsible for the accuracy of the submitted materials content.
All references in the text should be written following the example (Last name, year): 1 author – (Shoup, 2014), 2 authors – (Gerber & Opriessnig, 2015), 3 and more authors – (Clement et al., 2016; Davis et al. ., 2017).
The introduction reveals the relevance and research of the problem in the world scientific literature (should contain at least 15 references mainly to English-language articles in international publications over the last 5–10 years). At the end of the introduction, the aim of the article or hypothesis (hypotheses) have to be made that was formulated before the beginning of the study and is characterized by words “to identify…”, “to characterize…”, “to find out…”, “to describe…”. The purpose cannot be "to study ..." or "to investigate ...". The goal of the study - concisely indicates the main result, which is aimed at the study. The purpose should not duplicate the article's title.
Materials and Methods
This section should provide an opportunity to repeat the entire volume of research to verify the data received by the author of the article. The section should create a holistic view that the author of the work knows all the possible sources of errors that may affect the research results. If necessary, it can be also divided into subsections. The theoretical article reveals the theoretical foundations of research, concepts, provides formulas, equations, as well as personal methods of the author.
This section, if necessary, can be divided into subsections as well. The requirements for writing this section are general, as is the case for all international scientific publications. Here, experimental or theoretical data obtained in the course of the study without their interpretation should be given. It also contains all the graphic material and tables.
Results and discussion cannot be combined into one general article section.
Interpretation and generalization of the results, comparing them with 10–15 results of other researchers in solving similar problems. References to the literature are mandatory.
Conclusions should contain 5-10 sentences. It is possible in the form of a list, either in solid text. And it should give the main ideas of the article, demonstrate their novelty, focus on the practical application of the result, and offer directions for further research.
Provided if necessary. Acknowledgments are given after conclusions before bibliographic references.
References should be given in alphabetical order, and not in the order of mentioning in the text (the total number of references should be at least 20 for the original work and at least 25 for the overview).
All authors should be listed for papers without reducing their number by three or four. The list of references should be provided in accordance with the requirements of the APA – American Psychological Association, with doi indices, that are provided on the website www.crossref.org.

The procedure for reviewing articles
"Theoretical and Applied Veterinary Medicine journal uses double-blind peer review, which is made by an expert in the profile of the submitted article: neither the authors nor the reviewers know each other.
The Editorial Board determines the correspondence of the article to the journal's profile, the design requirements, and sends it for review to two scientists who have a scientific profile that is close to the article topic. Executive Editor informs the authors within ten working days of the receipt by the Editorial Board of the manuscript electronic version. The review time in each case is determined taking into account the reviewers' busyness for the most rapid publication of the article (usually one to two weeks). In the review, such aspects of future publication are noted:
- correspondence of the content of the article to its title;
- how much the article corresponds to modern scientifical achievements;
- whether the article is available to scientists in terms of language, style, the layout of material, tables, figures, etc.;
- whether it is advisable to publish an article in the context of literature previously issued on this topic;
- what specifically attracts attention; shortcomings of the article; corrections and additions that should be made by the author;
- conclusion on the possibility of publishing the manuscript:
- “recommended subject to corrections and deficiencies noted by the reviewer”
- or “not recommended”.
The recommended review form can be found in the Peer-review process section (https://bulletin-biosafety.com/index.php/journal/peer-review)
If the article is rejected, the Editorial Board sends the author a reasoned refusal.
The article, that was not recommended by the reviewer for publication, won't be considered for the second time.
The presence of a positive review is not a sufficient condition for publishing an article. The final decision on publication expediency is made by the Editorial Board. The Executive Editor informs the author (s) of her conclusion; with a positive decision, she indicates the terms of publication and payment.
Rejection Rate: 25 %.
