The Bibliovet Project


Bibliovet is a on-line encyclopaedia of veterinary medicine. Inspired by Wikipedia, it is an encyclopaedic collection of entries concerning dogs, cats and exotic animals. It is freely open to use by and contributions from veterinarians. It is the first instrument of its type in the field of veterinary medicine.

Bibliovet was conceived and created by ANMVI (Associazione Nazionale Medici Veterinari Italiani – Italian Association of Veterinarians) with the guidance and organizational management of EV (Edizioni Veterinarie - Veterinary Publishing) and the scientific patronage of SCIVAC (Società Culturale Italiana Veterinari per Animali da Compagnia - Italian Association for Companion Animal Veterinarians).

A Scientific committee presides over the contents of the site. The 56 members of this committee, specialists in their different disciplines, were charged with the compilation of the first 420 entries (as of Aug. 1st, 2015) with which the encyclopaedia opened and with reviewing external contributions.

The entries are in hypertext form and enriched with internal and external links, images and videos.

Bibliovet is destined for use only by veterinarians (it is not consultable by the general public), who can register freely and consult the encyclopaedia or contribute to it by contributing new entries or enriching existing ones (see User guide). The purpose of the encyclopaedia is disinterested sharing and spreading of knowledge in veterinary medicine (see Mission of the encyclopaedia).

Bibliovet is available in Italian and English versions, thus making the project open to use by and contributions from international colleagues. Sections on equine medicine and livestock will be developed in the future.

The two companies currently providing financial support for the project, Bayer and Royal Canin, have no access to and no influence on the scientific content of the site.


The mission of the encyclopaedia

Bibliovet is an encyclopaedic collection of articles on veterinary medicine which aspires to be a reference source for scientific information for veterinarians. It has been created by veterinarians and is intended for use by veterinarians. It is not open to the public. This choice was made to protect the scientific level of the contents and avoid divulgation of sensitive notions of veterinary medicine profession, such as therapeutic protocols and drug usage.
Bibliovet is designed to provide complete information, but in a concise form, offering a first, medium-high level of knowledge, which, for various topics, can then be further explored in more specialist articles.
Bibliovet believes in the philosophy of sharing knowledge and the disinterested spread of information in veterinary medicine. The intention is to create an impartial and positive source of information, in a civilised context in which controversy, contradictions and competition, for their own sake, should be avoided. Every contribution should be offered with this spirit.
The published contents of the encyclopaedia are the fruit of the authors’ professional experience and have not been copied in part or in whole from books or other on-line resources. The scientific committee guarantees the continuous updating of the information and the scientific reliability of the contents, in accordance with current knowledge in veterinary literature.
