Italian Journal of Animal Science

The Italian Journal of Animal Science is an international peer-reviewed journal publishing original scientific papers, reviews and short communications on animal science, animal production and related areas. It includes sections on: animal derived food quality and safety; reproduction and physiology (ruminants and non-ruminants); animal production (management, behaviour, welfare, health); wildlife; livestock management and landscape; nutrition and feeding (ruminant and non-ruminant); genetics (quantitative and molecular) and breeding; aquaculture.

Upon request to the Editor, announcements of congresses, presentations of universities, research institutes, books and proceedings may also be published, as well as news regarding the members of the Animal Science and Production Association (ASPA). The Association will be glad to receive proposals for your admission as ordinary or corresponding member: please read regulations and procedures in the ASPA statute.

The publication of manuscripts is subject to the approval of referees and in agreement with the Advisory Board’s opinions; referees will be selected from among qualified scientists in the international scientific community.

21st Congress of the Animal Science and Production Association

The 21st ASPA Congress (Association for Animal Science and Productions) will be held in Milan- Italy- from June 9th to June 12th 2015, at the Università Statale, Via Festa del Perdono.

The event aims to the development of the science of animal productions and 300-400 participants are expected (speakers, researchers, technicians and specialists of the field). Italian and foreign researchers will present their lectures, oral presentations and posters on different topics: Genetics and genomics, Livestock and environment, Physiology and metabolism, Animal products for human health, New technologies in animal sciences, Research and development in animal science.
