Wiley will publish the titles on behalf of BVA from January 2021.
The new partnership will build on the international success of BVA’s portfolio of journals, including flagship journal Vet Record, popular CPD journal In Practice, and online journals Vet Record Open and Vet Record Case Reports. Through the partnership, BVA and Wiley aim to enhance the overall digital offering of the journals and reach new audiences with cutting edge research, CPD and thought leadership for veterinary professionals.
Welcoming the new partnership, BVA President James Russell said,
“Our journals are our number one membership benefit for veterinary surgeons working in all fields of veterinary medicine and science. We’re particularly excited about working with Wiley to introduce new digital initiatives for both readers and authors that will promote access to the tools, resources and information vets need to develop their careers.”
“I am very pleased to welcome the British Veterinary Association to Wiley,” said Jay Flynn, Chief Product Officer, Research at Wiley.

It’s critical to our success that we attract the best research and thought leadership. Through BVA’s new partnership with Wiley, we can tap into their extensive network of researchers and institutions and offer authors a suite of services to support them in publishing their work.”
