The American Register of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) and Elsevier have announced that Applied Animal Science (AAS) has achieved the significant feat of converting its entire back catalog of articles to open access, in addition to new articles, following the transition to a 100% gold open access publishing model in January. This move allows researchers, students, and all animal science professionals to have free access to the journal’s extensive archive dating back to continuous publication since 1985.

Applied Animal Science’s Editor-in-Chief David K. Dr. Beede emphasized the importance of this move in expanding the reach and impact of applied animal science. By making the entire back catalog freely accessible, critical research on animal production, welfare and health can now reach a wider audience and have a greater impact in the field.

This conversion reflects a growing trend toward making scientific research more accessible. The initiative encourages the exchange of knowledge, fosters collaboration and accelerates progress in the field of animal science.
