The monthly scientific journal Miscarea Medicala was founded on January 1, 1928, by Dr. M. Canciulescu and his colleagues and it has functioned as a private journal for the entire duration of its existence. The headquarters of the publication was on Unirii Street no. 102-104, Craiova, Romania. The serial publication ran until 1948, and it changed its name several times. In 1930, the journal supplement became Miscarea Medicala Romaneasca, in 1932 the serial became Miscarea Medicala Romana, and in 1944 it changed its name again into Acta Medica Romana. Although the first numbers were printed at the Societatea Prietenii Stiintei (Craiova), some of the subsequent editions appeared under the aegis of Scrisul Romanesc, Craiova, which stopped working in the meantime. However, the Miscarea Medicala journal was an independent and private one.

The editors of the last volume (1948), Canciulescu M., Parhon C.I., Anghelescu C., Ciuca M., Daniel C., Gomoiu V., Danielopolu D., Ionescu-Mihaiesti C., Levaditi C., and Nicolau S., intended to resume the publication of the periodical, but this did not happen, and one of the last surviving editors, Dr. Victor Gomoiu (1882-1960), took over the archive, the collection and the right to publish the periodical publication. After the death of Dr. Victor Gomoiu, his wife, Mrs. Viorica Gomoiu (1899-1989), donated the archive, the collection and the publishing right of the journal to the History Museum of Medicine and Pharmacy in Craiova, which functioned within the University of Craiova (Faculty of Medicine) and in cooperation with the Romanian Committee for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, Craiova branch.

The preservation of the archive and of the idea of the re-editing of the publication is due to the Professor Mihail Scheau Ph.D., Professor Gheorghe Manolea Ph.D., and Ion Patrutoiu Ph.D.. With their help, in 2007 a pre-contract was concluded between the Romanian Committee of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, the Craiova branch, and Bioflux SRL (Bioflux Publishing House) for unifying the national journal Acta Medica Romana with the international one, projected to appear in 2007 under the name of Human & Veterinary Medicine (abbreviated HVM Bioflux). Because Human & Veterinary Medicine journal emerged and gained significant track records, in 2016 a definitive contract was drawn up to unify the two journals and editorial teams.

The digitization of the old collection was done through a contract concluded between the Bioflux Publishing House (Bioflux SRL) and the Central University Library Lucian Blaga, Cluj-Napoca.

Human & Veterinary Medicine is a biomedical serial publication, with four issues a year, being coordinated by Editor-in-chief Stefan Cristian Vesa Ph.D., and Director Ioan Valentin Petrescu-Mag Ph.D..

Statement of human and animal rights

When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000 (5). If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration, the authors must explain the rationale for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should indicate whether the institutional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors - "Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals"- February 2006 – cited by Pubmed, Medline database).

Statement of informed consent

Patients have a right to privacy that should not be infringed without informed consent. Identifying information, including patients' names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, and pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires that a patient who is identifiable be shown the manuscript to be published. Authors should identify individuals who provide writing assistance and disclose the funding source for this assistance. Identifying details should be omitted if they are not essential. Complete anonymity is difficult to achieve, however, and informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, such as in genetic pedigrees, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning and editors should so note (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors - "Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals"- February 2006 – cited by Pubmed, Medline database).

Conflict-of-interest statement

Public trust in the peer review process and the credibility of published articles depend in part on how well conflict of interest is handled during writing, peer review, and editorial decision making. Conflict of interest exists when an author (or the author's institution), reviewer, or editor has financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence (bias) his or her actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties). These relationships vary from those with negligible potential to those with great potential to influence judgment, and not all relationships represent true conflict of interest. The potential for conflict of interest can exist whether or not an individual believes that the relationship affects his or her scientific judgment. Financial relationships (such as employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony) are the most easily identifiable conflicts of interest and the most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, the authors, and of science itself (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors - "Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals"- February 2006 – cited by Pubmed, Medline database). However, conflicts can occur for other reasons, such as personal relationships, academic competition or intellectual passion, and the Chief Editor will do his best to avoid them, using specific policies in the process of peer-review.
