Announcing the launch of In Review

Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received 

Call for papers

We invite you to submit an article to the following thematic series:

Gut Microbiome and Animal Health (cross-journal collection)
Submission deadline: June 30, 2023

Interplay between feed, additives, and gut health of monogastric animals
Submission deadline: December 31, 2022

Information for Authors

Beginning with submissions received from January 1, 2022, authors of articles accepted for publication in Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology will need to pay an article-processing charge (APC). The APC for articles submitted in 2022 is €2190/£1790/$2590.

BMC offers APC waivers and discounts for papers whose corresponding authors are based in low-income countries. APC waivers or discounts may also be granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. For further details, please refer to the article-processing charge page.

The journal chooses to cover the APC for selected articles (such as Reviews and Research articles submitted to thematic series); authors can request waivers at the point of submission. Requests made during the review process or after acceptance will not be considered.

Aims and scope

Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that encompasses a wide range of research areas including animal genetics, reproduction, nutrition, physiology, biochemistry, biotechnology, feedstuffs and animal products. The journal publishes original and novel research articles and reviews mainly involved in pigs, poultry, beef cattle, cows, goats and sheep, but the studies involving aquatic and laboratory animal species that address fundamental questions related to livestock are also welcome.
