EDITORIAL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
The mission of the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) is to foster communication and collaboration among individuals and organizations associated with animal science research, education, industry, or administration "To discover, disseminate, and apply knowledge for sustainable use of animals for food and other human needs". The Journal of Animal Science (JAS), which is published monthly by ASAS, accepts manuscripts presenting information for publication with this mission in mind. Its editorial policies are established by the editor-in-chief, managing editor, section editors, and editorial board, subject to review by the publications committee, board of directors, and the membership of ASAS. Views expressed in papers published in JAS represent the opinions of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the official policy of the institution with which the author is affiliated, ASAS, or the editor-in-chief.
The JAS is one of the most frequently cited peer-reviewed, agriculturally oriented research journals in the world, based on statistics published by ISI, Inc. (Philadelphia, PA). Its high impact factor attests to the quality standards maintained by the JAS editorial board and by authors who submit manuscripts for publication.
