Journal History

TANUVAS has been publishing the Indian Journal of Veterinary and Animal Sciences Research (IJVASR) since 1972, for providing a platform to exchange Veterinary research updates in India.

IJVASR was first released, named   after the father of the Art of  Veterinary Medicine as “The Cheiron”, to be a platform for peer reviewed veterinary research in India. The journal was then renamed as Tamil Nadu Journal of Veterinary and Animal Sciences in 2005. The Journal’s current name was adopted in 2014, to  focus its relevance on the national scenario and also to improve its visibility. In its current format, in addition to the peer reviewed research papers, the journal also throws spotlight on technology development in veterinary, animal and fishery sciences.  IJVASR is now indexed in CAB International, Zoological abstracts of web of knowledge published by Thomson Reuters and the Indian Science Abstracts published by NISCAIR, India.

At a time when universities, research institutes, researchers and governments across the globe are striving to impart open access to scientific research, IJVASR has already implemented it and all the research papers published are now available fully online in the University’s website. In the Silver Jubilee year of TANUVAS (2014), we have now digitized all the articles published since the inception of this journal and have made all our research accessible to the global veterinary and research community. Now, the current volume of journal is 43 in 2014.
