Animal Journal

Animal is a new journal, owned by BSAS, INRA and EAAP entirely for the benefit of scientists

Animal has its own site available at  where instructions for manuscript submission, Editorial team and instructions for authors are available.

Animal is a completely new journal that seeks to attract the best research in animal biology and animal systems from across the spectrum of the agricultural, biomedical, and environmental sciences; it is the central element in an exciting collaboration between the British Society of Animal Science (BSAS). Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA) and the European Federation for Animal Science (EAAP) and represents a merging of the three scientific journals: Animal Science; Animal Research; Reproduction, Nutrition, Development.

Animal will publish original cutting-edge research, ‘hot’ topics and horizon-scanning reviews on animal-related aspects of the life sciences at the molecular, cellular, organ, whole animal and production system levels.

The main subject areas include:

  • Animal Breeding and Genetics.
  • Nutrition.
  • Physiology and Functional Biology of Systems.
  • Behaviour, Health and Welfare.
  • Livestock Farming Systems and Environmental Impact.
  • Product Quality, Human Health and Well-being.

Animal models and papers dealing with the integration of research between these topics and their impact on the environment and people will be particularly welcome.

Animal was launched in February 2007 and is published by Cambridge University Press (a non-profit organisation).
