Veterinary Science prepares students for careers in the fields of animal science-production, dairy science, agribusiness, range livestock management and pre-veterinary science. Veterinary science is the subject which deals with the health and wellbeing of animals. Like medicine, this encompasses everything from preventative care, to psychological analysis, to complex surgical procedures. Animals have played a crucial role in the lives of humans for thousands of years, be it as a source of food and clothing, in functional roles like hunting and transport, as a way for us to understand life from a scientific point of view, or simply as companions. Veterinary science today is a complex and advanced subject, which will require years of hard work before you can become a qualified practitioner, much like medicine.
Journal impact factor is an index or a criteria devised by Eugene Garfield to categorize journals based on their citations. Impact factor is considered as a putative marker to indicate the journal quality. But the recent policies being adopted to improve the impact factor is becoming a topic of controversies today. This current scenario questions the reliability of impact factor. The citation index cannot be considered to determine the scientific quality of an article because the technicalities are not considering the scientific quality. Knowing or reading an article is not enough to determine their quality validating the content and approving the findings and revalidating the facts is vital in scientific research. It is highly impossible to do a scholar check in each and every article to detect fraudulent or unsubstantial citations.
