Aim and Scope
The task of the Journal is to attract the papers on original research articles, short communication and peer reviewed articles from an individuals and organizations of International repute dedicated to animal science, and veterinary science and education.
Articles published in the Livestock Extension cover a broad range of explorative topics in all subjects of veterinary and animal sciences including animal production, reproduction, growth and Health aspects of domestic animals. This includes veterinary medicine, veterinary surgery, veterinary gynaecology and obstetrics, animal genetics and breeding, animal nutrition, veterinary physiology and biochemistry, veterinary parasitology, veterinary microbiology, veterinary pathology, veterinary pharmacology and toxicology, livestock product and technology, livestock production and management, veterinary public health and hygiene, veterinary anatomy, poultry science, laboratory animals and wild animals. The journal is also focused on research and management of laboratory animals (e.g. rat, mice, rabbit, guinea pig etc.) and wild animals. However, basic types of papers and notes which relate to investigations in a narrow specialized branch of a discipline may not form an appropriate material for this journal.
The manuscripts submitted to Livestock Extension will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that they are being submitted to one journal at a time and have not been published, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere either in part or full.
The Editor-in-Chief will reviews all submitted manuscripts initially. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific flaws, or absence of importance of message are rejected.
Before submission of the new manuscript authors should consider the following general rules for preparation of the manuscript. Please read these instructions carefully and follow the guidelines strictly. Submitted manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism before publication and will be rejected on breaking the plagiarism rules.

e.g. Keywords: Mastitis, etiology, prevention, treatment.
8. INTRODUCTION: In this part no needs to write separate heading like ‘INTRODUCTION”. This is a brief background and limited to the statement of the importance of the study, problem or the aim of the experiment. It may briefly justify the research and specify the hypotheses to be tested. The review of literature should be pertinent to the problem. The specific questions to be addressed the study should also described. Objective of the study should be discussed in view of latest references.
9. MATERIALS AND METHODS :
The relevant details should be given of the animal, including experimental design and the techniques employed. Where the methods are well known, the citation of a standard work is sufficient. All modifications of procedures must be explained. Experimental materials and statistical models should be described clearly and fully. Authors must certify (see the certificate to be given by authors) that animals were cared for under guidelines comparable to those laid down by the Institutional Animal Ethics Committee. All subheadings should be in sentence case and bold without any numbering or headings or subheadings.10. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION :
The results and discussion should preferably be combined to avoid repetition. This part should be included a concise textual description of the data presented in tables and figures. Repetition of the same data in different forms should be avoided. The result should be presented in tabular form and graphs when feasible but not both. The color figures and plates are printed only under exceptional circumstances when editor in chief decides that the information would be lost, if reproduced in black and white. Mean result with the relevant standard errors should be presented rather than detailed data. The data should be so arranged that the tables would fit in the normal layout of the page. Self explanatory tables should be typed on separate sheets and carry appropriate titles. Discussion should be considered the results in relation to any hypotheses advanced in the introduction. This may include an evaluation of the methodology and of the relationship of new information to the knowledge in that field.
All people who have made a genuine contribution and who endorse the data and conclusion(s) may be included. Authors are responsible for obtaining written permission to use any copyrighted text and/or illustration.
13. Tables and Figures:
Figure and tables should be inserting at suitable position in the text. Legends should be self explanatory. Table should be typewritten, double spaced, and each table should include a title. Vertical rulings in tables are unacceptable. Figures should ordinarily be original drawings and in JPEG format (Please do not paste other format figures in the text). However, glossy photographs of line-drawing are usually satisfactory. In each original line-drawing, letters or numbers should be left blank because they will be typed in during printing. Letters or numbers should be included in the figures contained in a submitted manuscript along with caption for figures. Authors should place explanatory matter in footnotes, not in the heading. Explain in footnotes all nonstandard abbreviations that are used in each table. For footnotes use the following symbols, in sequence:
Nomenclatures, Unit, Abbreviations, and Symbols Nomenclatures for chemicals and biochemicals, microorganism, and genes should follow the guidelines in the instructions to authors of journals published by American Society for Microbiology. SI units (System International Unites) should be used whenever possible. Abbreviations should be used for those recommended by IUPA-IUB Commission on Biochemical Nomenclature and Related Documents.
15. Proof-correction should be in red ink; in the margins. All queries marked in the article should be answered. Proofs are supplied for a check-up of the correctness of type-setting and facts. Excessive alteration may be charged to the authors. The proofs should be returned within 7 Working days.
