Translational Animal Science



Purpose and scope: 

Animal scientists have always been able to translate discoveries from basic research into applications that address a topic of importance to the animal industries. TAS, even more than JAS, will focus on translating basic science to innovation and validation of those innovations by various segments of the allied animal industry.

The mission of 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.

Although TAS publications will be released monthly, finished publications will go online on a rolling basis. This process ensures rapid availability of the manuscripts following acceptance. TAS will accept manuscripts with particular emphasis on highlighting the translation of basic to applied research or validation of applied research. Articles published in TAS will encompass a broad scope of research topics in animal science.

Publication costs:

The fee for submission to TAS is $100. This charge will only be made once, at initial submission. The submission fee will be subtracted from your Open Access rate if accepted for publication.  TAS is an Open Access journal and therefore charges an Open Access fee rather than page charges.  Reduced Open Access fees are a member benefit and the membership fee to publish in TAS  is $1,300. The nonmember fee is $2,000.

Intended TAS readership:

Readers of TAS will typically represent education, industry, and government, including research, teaching, administration, extension, management, quality assurance, product development, and technical services. Those interested in TAS typically include animal breeders, economists, embryologists, engineers, food scientists, geneticists, microbiologists, nutritionists, veterinarians, physiologists, processors, public health professionals, and others with an interest in animal production and applied aspects of animal sciences.
