The Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine

The Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine (JVIM) is the official publication of the ACVIM, the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, the European College of Veterinary Neurology, and the European College of Equine Internal Medicine.

The mission of the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine is to advance veterinary medical knowledge and improve the lives of animals by publication of authoritative scientific articles of animal diseases. JVIM provides an international forum for communication and discussion of the latest developments in large and small animal internal medicine, cardiology, neurology, and oncology.

In January 2015, the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine moved to an online, open access format.
