Update June 20, 2016: The deadline for submitting manuscripts has been extended

Veterinary Pathology will publish a special issue on the topic of “Pathology and Pathogenesis of Immune-Mediated Diseases of Animals / Diseases of the Immune System. We are soliciting submissions of primary research papers and reviews. Authors are advised to send a short summary or prospectus to the guest-editor, Dr. Verena Affolter (Enable JavaScript to view this email address.) before preparing a review paper or submitting a manuscript. 

  • Deadline for summary submissions: June 15, 2016; extended to July 15, 2016 updated
  • Deadline for submission of full manuscript: August 15, 2016; extended to August 30, 2016 updated

Veterinary Pathology ( is the journal of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists, the European College of Veterinary Pathologists, and the Japanese College of Veterinary Pathologists. Research papers and reviews for the special issue should fulfill the following requirements:

  1. The submitted manuscript should have a focus on naturally occurring immune-mediated diseases in animals or address laboratory animal models of immune-mediated diseases.
  2. The manuscript should address disease mechanisms (pathogenesis and pathophysiology), pathologic findings and if possible clinic-pathologic correlations.
  3. The research should be of significance to animal and/or human health.
  4. The manuscript should be of sufficiently broad interest and of substantial value to veterinary pathologists.
  5. Documentation of in vitro experiments or genetic analyses are suitable if they reveal aspects of pathogenesis and offer advanced knowledge in understanding of diseases mechanisms, pathologic diagnosis, or clinical relevance of pathologic diagnosis.
