Elsevier & ADSA® Proudly Announce Winners of Third Annual Journal of Dairy Science® Most-Cited Awards

Philadelphia, PA, July 31, 2013

Elsevier, world-leading provider of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services, and the American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA) proudly announce the winners of the third annual Journal of Dairy Science® (JDS) Most-Cited Awards. Papers published in JDS throughout 2010 were eligible and citations from date of publication until April 15, 2013, were taken into consideration. Awards are conferred in each of the four sections comprising the journal's content: Dairy Foods; Physiology and Management; Nutrition, Feeding and Calves; and Genetics and Breeding.

"The number of citations a published study receives is an indicator of its importance to its research community. Our intent in recognizing the Journal of Dairy ScienceMost-Cited Awards program is to formally recognize contributors to JDS whose work is significantly impacting research and the dairy industry," commented Roger D. Shanks, PhD, editor-in-chief of JDS and professor emeritus, Department of Animal Sciences, University of Illinois, Urbana. "While US-based, we are truly international in scope, an indication of which is the fact that two of the four corresponding authors are outside of the US."

Award-winning papers receiving the highest number of citations in each of four sections are:
