Instructions to authors.
The aim of this website is to improve the quality of discussion about animal experimentation and alternative approaches, by offering bio-scientists in all relevant fields an opportunity to share their expertise, knowledge and ideas concerning the scientific, ethical, economic and logistical aspects raised by laboratory animal use.
Initially it will be aimed at veterinarians and veterinary students, because of the key part played by their profession in both the use and care of laboratory animals.
Articles listed here will be circulated along with FRAME’s peer-review, scientific journal, Alternatives to Laboratory Animals (ATLA).
