Abstract: Introduction: Animal models have been developed for scientific research over the last few decades in an attempt to comprehend etiological factors and mechanisms and to treat diseases. Objective: The aim of this article was to discuss aspects related to animal experimentation, the choice of animal models and the current trends in Brazil. Additionally, this study aims at evaluating the space occupied by experimental articles in medical journals. Methods: Five Brazilian journals linked to LILACS SciELO, and MEDLINE and recently incorporated in the Institute for Scientific Information Journal of Citation Reports were selected and all the articles published in 2007 and 2008 that involved animal experimentation were identified from the abstracts. Results: Of a total of 832 articles published by the journals, 92 (11.1%) articles were concerned with animal experimentation. The number of articles that focused on animal models is variable in the different journals analyzed with frequencies of between 5.2% and 17.9%. Conclusions: This study may contribute by providing support to adopt editorial policies relative to the publication of original articles on animal research in the BJCVS.
