About the Journal
Aims and Scope
Journal of Animal Science and Research (JASR) recognises that to properly study and manage the animals that are useful to humans and those in the wild we need to understand the science behind them. That implies learning Biology, Reproduction, Physiology, Nutrition (feeds, feeding), Pathology (including disease emergence and zoonoses) and behaviour. Moreover, JASR wishes to contribute to bridging the gap between scientific research and the application of sound science in the management and conservation of domestic mammals, non-domestic mammals, avian, reptiles, and fish and aquatic species as well as other wild species.
The journal will focus on studies that involve carefully selected reports that provide a link between basic research and application in animal management. The editors support the dissemination of original solutions to stimulating questions in animal science and animal management. JASR is dedicated to publishing material of research in animal science, such as Biology of Reproduction, Gametes and Embryo Conservation, Immunology, Disease and Disease Prevention and Treatment, Animal Welfare, well-being and stress, Breeding, Genetics, and Genomics and Sustainability of animal production.Such papers will be interesting to an international audience of professionals in academia, breeders, veterinarians, and biologists. Presumably, the readership of JASR will be engaged in the management, use, and protection of animals in the wild, on the farm or as pets.
The journal pursues contributions which prioritise distinction, originality, reduction to practice, accuracy, focus and appeal to the readership. Most likely veterinarians, agronomists, and various scientists devoted to animal fields in the broadest sense will engage as authors of JASR articles.
JASR is peer-reviewed to safeguard the scientific value and significance to Animal Science of its diverse content.
Call for submissions
JASR publishes articles of original, interdisciplinary, and applied research. The Editor actively encourages scientists and professionals dealing with research in animal management for production, veterinary care in research or conservation programs, basic scientists engaged in animal physiology, endocrinology and systems biologists. Emphasis is given to papers that heighten capabilities for sustainable livestock production with environmental and animal welfare focus. Reports directed to and based on research on a comprehensive range of subjects as well as experimental papers may be submitted. Moreover, authors may contribute short reviews (by invitation from the Editor) and letters to the editor.
