CRC Press - Case Selection Information

From WikiVet English
Jump to navigation Jump to search


WikiVet and CRC Press are collaborating to provide free of charge case excerpts from Veterinary textbooks on WikiVet. As part of this, we are offering the opportunity for students to get a free physical copy of a textbook in the same series as the book they choose to review. Case selection involves working through the full text (normally 200-250pp) and selecting specific cases for WikiVet to host as free content.

There are a limited number of opportunities here, as we only require one student for each book in the Self-Assessment Colour Review series (c.25 texts) and the Veterinary Colour Handbook series (6 titles).


This offer applies to the case-based Self-Assessment Colour Review, and Veterinary Colour Handbook Series.

Guidelines for students

Students are required to work carefully through their chosen textbook, selecting 10% of cases from the book or 15 cases: whichever is more. Students don’t need to complete every case, but they will need to work through a significant proportion of the book in order to select a good range of cases.

The following guidelines apply:

1) The cases should be selected based on the suitability of the learning objectives for undergraduate veterinary students

2) The cases should be a broad representation of the book, e.g., covering the different species, disciplines and systems

3) Cases which are very geographically specific should be avoided

4) Case selection should be completed within 6 weeks of being provided with the digital copy of the book

5) Digital copies will be provided via a Vitalsource app and must not be shared with others

6) The case numbers (for the Self-Assessment Colour Review series) or chapter numbers (for the Veterinary Colour Handbook Series) which have been selected, along with a brief overview of the subject of the case, should be recorded in a spreadsheet. This will be shared when students are given access to their textbook for review

7) A brief reason for the selection of the case should be included, for publication on the WikiVet page alongside the case itself

8) Print copies of any other book in the same series will be sent upon final receipt and publication of the selected cases
