Veterinary Research is an international scientific journal supported by the Animal Health Division of the National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE). The editorial team is administratively attached to the Virology and Molecular Immunology Unit (INRAE Jouy-en-Josas).

This journal publishes high quality and novel research and review articles focusing on animal infection. Fields of study covered by the journal are bacteriology, parasitology, virology, immunology, prion diseases, and epidemiology. Studies on animals used in food production, companion animals, equines, wild animals (if the infections are of zoonotic interest and/or in relation to domestic animals), laboratory animals, and animal models of human infections are also considered. Research on zoonotic and emerging infections is highly appreciated.

Veterinary Research began its life in 1993. Previous to this date, it was published under the title of Annales de Recherches Vétérinaires which was created in 1970. Until 1972, all articles appeared exclusively in French with only the abstracts in English. Articles published in English appear from 1973 on and their number (and percentage) gradually increased to reach 100% in 2003. Since January 2011, Veterinary Research is an open access journal published by BMC.
