IMPORTANT NOTICE. From the 1st of January 2018, the journal animal has a revised scope. The journal is re-centered on animal production and management practices. Two new sections have been created, Precision Livestock Farming and Health Management, to accompany the development of new research topics. A stronger guidance on standards of research in animal is provided separately from the scope. 

The journal has also initiated a move towards a greater Transparency and Reproducibility of Research, in order to reinforce the promotion of high quality research. Contributors are strongly advised to read the Publication Policy here before submitting. We hope contributors will appreciate this move forward.

Animal publishes the best, innovative and cutting-edge science that relates to animals (farmed or managed) used for animal production, and that is relevant to whole animal outcomes, and/or to animal management practices. Papers can be accepted from all species if they are in, or contribute knowledge to, animal production systems. Animal is essential reading for all animal scientists, stakeholders and policy makers interested in agricultural, biomedical, veterinary and environmental sciences with expected impacts on Animal Production and Productivity, Animal Welfare, Animal Health, Food Security, Environment, Climate Change, Product Quality, Human Health and Nutrition, and Sustainability of Animal Agriculture and Livestock Systems. Impacts should be of international relevance. Animal aims to publish novel and original research papers, horizon-scanning reviews and critically informative opinion papers. Papers should consider animal responses, as well as lower or upper levels of understanding, with research spanning from genes to systems. Interactions between levels of approach are encouraged to account for the integrative nature of biological systems. The main subject areas include: breeding and genetics; nutrition (monogastrics, ruminants); physiology and functional biology; welfare, behaviour and health management (welfare and behaviour; health management); livestock farming systems (livestock systems; precision livestock farming); quality of animal products.
