Crossmark Policy, Post-Publication Discussions, and Corrections

Crossmark is a multi-publisher initiative from Crossref to provide a standard way for readers to locate the current version of a piece of content. By applying the Crossmark logo, the Iraqi Journal of Veterinary Medicine, published by College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Baghdad, is committing to maintaining the content it publishes and to alerting readers to changes if and when they occur. Clicking on the Crossmark logo will tell you the current status of a document and may also give you additional publication record information about the document. All articles published in the Iraqi Journal of Veterinary Medicine receive a DOI and are permanently published. This applies regardless of the outcome of the peer review that follows after publication.

All content, including articles that have not (yet) passed peer review, is permanently archived in the Iraqi Journal of Veterinary Medicine journal OJS platform. All versions of all articles that have passed peer review will be archived in Iraqi Journal of Veterinary Medicine journal archive page.

The Iraqi Journal of Veterinary Medicine encourages constructive criticism of the published papers and to be evaluated under the scientific debate by the scientific community. This post-publication evaluation is focused to make sure that the quality of published papers comes across standards and the conclusions reached are defensible.
