The Professional Animal Scientist: Publisher Report

We are very pleased to report that, partly as a result of some recent Elsevier marketing campaigns to promote The Professional Animal Scientist (PAS; more information below), we have seen an increase in the number of article downloads in 2017.

ACAS Update

N. Andy Cole, PhD, PAS, Dipl. ACAN, ACAS President

I am happy to say that over the past few months we have had a number of individuals successfully apply for ACAS membership through the Highly Qualified Individual designation. As I prepare this newsletter we have five new ACAS members: Stacey Gunter, research leader and research animal scientist with the USDA-ARS at Woodward, Oklahoma; Mike Looper, department head and professor of physiology with the University of Arkansas; Luis Tedeschi, professor of beef cattle nutrition with Texas A&M University; Art Goetsch, animal nutritionist at the US Goat Research Center, Langston, Oklahoma; and Terry Engle, animal nutritionist at Colorado State University. I have known each of these gentlemen for many years and am honored to welcome them to ACAS. We have several additional applicants who are currently in the review process.

The Professional Animal Scientist (PAS) Update

Wayne Kellogg, Editor-in-Chief

We have published the first two issues of volume 33 and are completing the June issue. Although it appears that we cannot repeat the record size of volume 32, we should meet or exceed our goal of 720 printed pages. Volume 32 (2016) was the first year with Elsevier as publisher, and I express appreciation to Emma Bruun for providing usage information. I am pleased that ARPAS members increased usage from a monthly average of 989 downloads in 2016 to 1,392 downloads per month thus far in 2017.
