About this Journal

The Vlaams Diergeneeskundig Tijdschrift (ISSN 0303-9021) is a scientific journal that is published bimonthly (six issues per year). It presents mainly clinical topics and addresses itself to two very different readerships: the local Dutch speaking veterinarians in Belgium and the Netherlands, and the international veterinary and biomedical research community. Each issue contains scientific papers either in English, or in Dutch with an English abstract. The journal is covered by Current Contents, Web of Science, and other indexing services.
