The South African Society for Animal Science (SASAS) welcomes the submission of manuscripts from members of the South African Society for Animal Science and from scientists in Africa and abroad on all matters germane to the science of animal production for publication in the South African Journal of Animal Science (SAJAS).
The scope of the journal includes reports of research dealing with farm livestock species (cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and poultry), as well as pertinent aspects of research on aquatic and wildlife species. The main disciplines covered are nutrition, genetics, physiology and production aspects of animal products.
Papers dealing with sociological aspects of well-defined livestock production systems are invited, providing they are scientific by nature and have been carried out in a systematic way.
Papers dealing with routine, repetitive testing or economic evaluation of specific products, feeds or cultivars, case studies or matters dealing with agricultural extension or consumer issues are discouraged unless the results so derived are used to develop or elaborate scientific concepts in the field of animal science.
Papers that form part of a series are discouraged: this includes different aspects of data derived from one particular experiment, or cases in which the analytical techniques, animals or experimental procedures are common to all papers.
Where authors have valid reasons for separation of reports into two manuscripts, these must be submitted simultaneously; delayed or staggered submissions will automatically be rejected. In all cases, reports should represent original contributions to current scientific knowledge of the principles or the application of principles governing the functioning of animals, production aspects of their products and their relationship to the social or physical environment.
