Animal – open space

Editor-in-Chief: Giuseppe Bee

Animal - open space publishes articles that relate to farmed or other managed animals, leisure and companion animals and the use of insects for animal feed and human food. The journal embraces open science and its philosophy is that all research, the data linked to that research and the associated points of views of the authors should contribute to knowledge gain.

The journal publishes data papers, method articles and research articles. All articles submitted to animal - open space will undergo a traditional peer review process with transparent peer review. This means that reviewers' comments and authors' responses will be published as supplementary material.
