Elsevier and the journal's prestigious international editorial board will be working closely together to maximize the benefits that Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia can provide to its global community of large and small animal veterinary medicine professionals, researchers, academic clinicians, practicing veterinarians, as well as the libraries that serve them. Subscribers will have access to the journal's content through Elsevier's online platforms.
