IJVS does not publish manuscripts that do not declare a statement about the protection of animal rights. Normally, the journal requires that a statement is declared that research has been reviewed by an institutional review board either in the material method section of the manuscript or in the acknowledgment section of the manuscript. IJVS encourages authors to report the registry number of the council certification. In addition, If your manuscript is based on in vivo experiment, then follow the guidelines of ARRIVE and amend the manuscript wherever necessary. Authors should have to do it otherwise there may be a chance of rejection.
When experimental animals (All live animals considered experimental when used for the study) are used, the methods section must clearly indicate that adequate measures were taken to minimize pain or discomfort. Experiments should be carried out in accordance with the Guidelines laid down by the International Animal Ethics Committee or Institutional ethics committee and in accordance with local laws and regulations. All studies using human or animal subjects should include an explicit statement in the Material and Methods section identifying the review and ethics committee approval for each study, if applicable. Editors reserve the right to reject papers if there is doubt as to whether appropriate procedures have been used.
