ALTEX is devoted to the publication of research on the development and
promotion of alternatives to animal experiments according to the 3R concept
of Russell and Burch: Replace, Reduce, and Refine. Animal experiments are
defined as all experimental procedures involving the use of animals in
testing, research and education or to obtain tissues, organs, and other
animal-derived products which may cause pain or distress to animals. ALTEX
further publishes manuscripts on the bioethics of the complex relationship
between humans and animals.
Articles published in ALTEX must express a basic concern for the dignity of
living creatures and the recognition of animals as our partners. All
articles are judged according to stringent scientific standards. Manuscripts
submitted to ALTEX are evaluated by two reviewers. The evaluation takes into
account the scientific merit of a manuscript and its contribution to animal
welfare and the 3R principle.
