Rank among animal and dairy science journals:
The Journal of Animal Science (JAS) is the premier journal for animal science and serves as the leading source of new knowledge and perspective in this area. JASJAS consistently ranks as one of the top journals (among 43 titles) in the category of Agriculture, Dairy, and Animal Sciences in terms of impact factor, immediacy index, and cited half-life and is in the top 1% of STM publishing (50,000+ titles) by total ISI citations.

Purpose and scope:
The mission of the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) is to foster communication and collaboration among individuals and organizations associated with animal science research, education, industry, or administration. “To discover, disseminate and apply knowledge for sustainable use of animals for food and other human needs.” The Journal of Animal Science, which is published monthly by ASAS, accepts manuscripts presenting information for publication with this mission in mind. Articles published in JAS encompass a broad range of research topics in animal production and fundamental aspects of genetics, nutrition, physiology, and preparation and utilization of animal products. Articles typically report research with beef cattle, companion animals, goats, horses, pigs, and sheep; however, studies involving other farm animals, aquatic and wildlife species, and laboratory animal species that address fundamental questions related to livestock and companion animal biology will be considered for publication. Manuscripts that report research on production issues in animals other than those constituting the main focus of the journal should be submitted to other journals.
