NEW One Health Journal Announcement – Basel, Switzerland The new online open access journal Veterinary Sciences (ISSN 2306-7381, http://www.mdpi.com/journal/vetsci) will focus on publishing original studies and reviews with species comparisons of physiology, disease pathogenesis and/or treatment. Therefore, its editorial staff aims to attract publications about zoonotic diseases as well as spontaneous and experimental animal models of human disease. As a result, we hope that this new journal will become a valuable publication avenue for authors writing about “One Health” topics. We are excited to join with the One Health Initiative as it demonstrates the benefits of cooperation between all health care professionals in order to solve some of the world’s most difficult health problems. Medical science is informed by the study of animal physiology and pathophysiology, both spontaneous and induced. The complete sequencing of the genomes of multiple species has opened up the opportunity to systematically compare genetic similarities and differences from one animal species to another as well as to man. The overall goals of Veterinary Sciences along these lines is outlined in a published introductory editorial: Veterinary Sciences—A Forum for One Medicine, One Health: http://www.mdpi.com/2306-7381/1/1/1 The first issue, planned for late Spring 2014, will have the following theme: Animal Models and Better Understanding of “One Medicine”: http://www.mdpi.com/2306-7381/1/1/3 Please join Veterinary Sciences and the One Health Initiative as we seek to highlight that knowledge of many species is crucial to the health of man and the planet.
