Applied Animal Science (AAS, formerly known as The Professional Animal Scientist) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal and the official publication of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS). ARPAS provides certification of professional status for qualified members of the registry, strengthens animal sciences among the professions, and promotes animal sciences and the work of animal scientists. Continual education is required of all certified professionals to keep abreast of rapidly changing technology and discovery in their fields.
In continuous publication since 1985, the journal is a leading outlet for animal science research. The journal welcomes novel manuscripts as original research, reviews, short communications, and technical notes about use or application of research-based information in the animal sciences and agricultural production systems. Topics considered for publication include, but are not limited to, forages and feed science, management and production, physiology and reproduction, welfare and behavior, health, genetics, food science (meats and dairy foods), nutrition, extension and teaching, and sustainability and integrated systems. Manuscripts involving dairy and beef cattle, swine, poultry, horses, sheep, goats, or other species that serve mankind are welcome. Manuscripts on animal and farm management related to disease control and prevention, animal well-being, microbiology, agricultural economics, and environmental opportunities or challenges are also encouraged. Themed special issues may also be considered for publication.
