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.
