NEW: Applied Animal Science, Volume 35 (2019) Available for Your Consumption

Dave Beede, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of AAS, PAS, Dipl. ACAN

The February and April issues of Applied Animal Science (AAS) (https://www.appliedanimalscience.org), volume 35, are online and ready for your consumption!

It is hoped that the name change to Applied Animal Science from The Professional Animal Scientist will attract new and more authors from the global animal science community and serve a broader spectrum of readers in the ever-changing landscape of animal science and production systems. Additionally, with the name change, notable changes were made to the Policies and Instructions for Authors (https://www.appliedanimalscience.org/inst-auth). Key changes include new Science and Application categories to help define the scope and table of contents of the journal, use of a new structured abstract format to give busy ARPAS readers a succinct encapsulation of each article, and the “Applications” section to summarize and emphasize how the information can be applied in animal production and science.

ARPAS Journal 2019: Applied Animal Science

Dave Beede, PhD, Editor-in-Chief, AAS, and PAS and Diplomate ACAN

Four items for your immediate attention below

Unless you have been living under a rock during the last few months, you know that the name of the ARPAS journal will change in 2019 to Applied Animal Science (AAS). To continue sequential numbering of ARPAS’s journal, the volume will be 35. The title changed slightly from that announced in August, dropping the words “journal of,” to accommodate the use of a unique title and the International Standard Serial Number to distinguish it from another journal with that title.

ARPAS Journal

Dave Beede, Editor-in-Chief, PAS/JAAS

The new name of the ARPAS journal will be the Journal of Applied Animal Science (JAAS) beginning January 2019. This change was approved by the Governing Council at the annual meeting in June, following survey input from the ARPAS membership. The new name catalyzes several other changes to the ARPAS journal that will appear early next year including a new cover; a new definition of the applied scope, focus, and value proposition of the journal; a new table of contents (scientific content: food science; forages and feeds; genetics; health and well-being; integrated systems – production and management; nutrition; physiology; sustainability; and, welfare and behavior) and a new editorial board structure to align with the table of contents; and, new description of responsibilities and instructions for authors and reviewers for submission and review of manuscripts. A new feature will be “Experts from the Field,” where ARPAS members will be commissioned to provide publishable comments about the particular relevance and potential impact to the animal sciences and production systems of some published journal articles.
