Animal Family of Journals

The animal family of journals is comprised of animal, animal – science proceedings, and animal – open space. The journals are published by a Consortium of the BSAS, EAAP, and INRAE. All articles are published as Gold Open Access.


Editor-in-Chief:  Isabelle Ortigues-Marty

Animal publishes the best, innovative and cutting-edge science that relates to (farmed or managed) animals, 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, farmed and managed animal systems (e.g., cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, horses, rabbits, fish).

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. It is a new publishing initiative, fully embracing Open Science and its philosophy is that all carefully conducted research, the data linked to that research and the associated points of views of the authors should contribute to knowledge gain. This knowledge deserves to be rapidly published and open for further discussion from readers and the authors once published.

Animal – science proceedings

Editor-in-Chief: Cledwyn Thomas

Animal - science proceedings publishes high-quality conference, symposium and workshop proceedings on aspects of the life sciences with emphasis on farmed, other managed animals, leisure and companion animals, aquaculture and the use of insects for animal feed and human food. These can be in the form of a book of abstracts or one to two-page summaries or short papers.
