Dear JAVMA readers,

I just wanted to take a brief moment to remind you that once-monthly JAVMA begins with your next issue, April 2022. In the March 1, 2022 JAVMA, I wrote about the numerous opportunities afforded readers and authors by returning to once-monthly JAVMA, including the launch of “Currents in One Health.” This regular new feature comprises invited papers from veterinarians leading in research and practice at the intersection of animal, human, and environmental health. In addition, reducing JAVMA's frequency to 12 regular issues allows us to publish two Supplemental Issues each year, each devoted entirely to a theme of practical, clinical information. The inaugural Supplemental Issue, published online in December 2021, with the print version mailing with the January 15, 2022 issue, was devoted to “Surgery in Your Practice.” Upcoming 2022 Supplemental Issues will feature urogenital health in June and nutrition in December.

We anticipate that you will receive your monthly issue around the 15th of each month. However, the publishing industry has not been spared from workforce and supply chain shortages, so I hope you will understand if JAVMA arrives later than usual. We are in constant contact with our printer to ensure you receive print JAVMA as quickly as possible. Fortunately, members and readers can access the current issue online, as well as Online First articles on the completely redesigned journal website (https://avmajournals.avma.org) and AVMA newsroom (https://avma.org/news/).

As always, feel free to reach out to me at
