Aims and Scope

Journal of Animal Science and Technology (J. Anim. Sci. Technol. or JAST) is a peer-reviewed, open access journal publishing original research, review articles and notes in all fields of animal science.

Topics covered by the journal include: genetics and breeding, physiology, nutrition of monogastric animals, nutrition of ruminants, animal products (milk, meat, eggs and their by-products) and their processing, grasslands and roughages, livestock environment, animal biotechnology, animal behavior and welfare.

However, studies involving other farm animals, aquatic and wildlife species, and laboratory animal species that address fundamental questions related to livestock and companion animal biology will also be considered for publication.

The Journal of Animal Science and Technology (J. Anim. Technol. or JAST) has been the official journal of The Korean Society of Animal Science and Technology (KSAST) since 2000, formerly known as The Korean Journal of Animal Sciences (launched in 1956).
