animal Receives An Impressive Impact Factor Of 4

We are delighted to announce that the animal Journal has achieved a remarkable milestone with the release of its latest Impact Factor (IF). animal now boasts an impressive IF of 4.0, underscoring its growth and increasing influence over the past five years.

animal is an open-access, international scientific journal co-owned by The British Society of Animal Science (BSAS), INRAe, and the European Association of Animal Production (EAAP), and published by Elsevier. The journal's comprehensive coverage across various disciplines in animal science is reflected in its outstanding rankings: 4th out of 80 in the Agriculture, Dairy & Animal Science category, and 8th out of 167 in the Veterinary Sciences category. These rankings are especially noteworthy given that animal publishes a significant proportion of original research articles (approximately 85%), in contrast to many higher-ranking journals that specialise in specific disciplines or predominantly publish review papers, which often attract more citations.

We are proud of the contributions from BSAS members, who consistently submit high-quality manuscripts to animal  and we encourage you to consider submitting your future manuscripts to animal and to explore opportunities to support the journal's growth by volunteering as a deputy section editor. Your contributions and expertise are invaluable to maintaining the high standards and continued success of our journal.

Additionally, members of BSAS can benefit from significant discounts on the article processing charges, as can our deputy section editors.
