Cambridge launches new journal in animal nutrition

Cambridge University PressCambridge University Press has announced that it will publish a new online only animal nutrition journal. The new journal entitled Journal of Applied Animal Nutrition (JAAN) will join Cambridge’s distinguished list in animal science and nutrition from 2012

JAAN will publish leading research in all aspects of animal feed science and nutrition in agricultural species, companion species and exotic species. Research areas covered include commercially funded research such as new product development as well as academic research.

Dr Lucy Waldron, editor of JAAN, said, “This is an exciting new development for researchers, post graduates and commercial companies. As the majority of research is now commercially sponsored, it will allow improved access to data from research studies that involves a commercial element that is otherwise more difficult to publish.”

“Although JAAN adheres to the traditional requirements in terms of quality of protocols, data analysis and reporting, it also allows readers to access pilot studies, which are highly useful as background information for new product development or new research directions.”
