Veterinary science is focused on the prevention, treatment, control, and diagnostic assessment of diseases in domestic and wild animals. The Veterinary Science Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers, early-stage research, and clinical research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preprints, preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps veterinary science scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
Research in veterinary science covers areas such as animal behavior, ethics, welfare and law, animal forensics, the human-animal bond, as well as preventing the transmission of animal diseases to humans. Novel technologies focused on developing new diagnostic procedures and treatments which will serve to advance the field of veterinary science and medicine are also covered. SSRN fosters an interdisciplinary connection, helping veterinary scholars and educators discover current research in their own and related fields such as agriculture, cognitive science, law, medicine, neurology, and philosophy.
