<p>As the article is a short Opinion Paper, it has no abstract, but it aims to highlight the inherent challenges to ethics review of animal (welfare) science research, especially the differences between different countries and jurisdictions which can give rise to inequalities as articles are reviewed internationally. The article is meant as a debate starter, and we hope that some of the issues raised will inspire animal researchers, journals, and reviewers to improve the process, even though we do not have all the answers.</p>
