The visual approach of vHealth communications does not aspire to replace normal-length articles, but aims at facilitating communication to the wider set of stakeholders involved in research today. To make visualization an integral part of the scientific communication, the journal welcomes the combination of a short manuscript and a complementing video clip, which form together a vHealth communication. In accordance with the focus of the journal, vHealth communications need to show application of geographical information systems, remote sensing, global positioning systems, spatial statistics or other geospatial tools in the context of human and veterinary health.
