Selecting papers for publication or How does a journal decide which type of papers to select for their journal? Kristen Sejrsen, SVE


  • Why me?

  • Involved in the start of animal

  • Senior editor animal

  • President of EAAP- one of the 3 partners





Background

  • Many different small animal science journals

  • Many European scientist send their papers to the US

  • A wish to create a European journal of the same stature as Journal of Animal Science and Journal of Dairy Science

  • Unhappy with the financial agreement with Elsevier

    • Loss of funds for the federation




Considerations regrading the scope of the journal

  • What is important for authors?

  • Which topics?

    • Should it be open to other topics that traditional animal science
    • Can it be too broad?
      • Biomedical, genetic ressources, tropical agriculture, companion animals, aquaculture, human health aspects?
    • Too narrow?
  • International or European?

    • should papers of only local relevance be accepted?
  • Emphasis on the impact factor?

    • What is a high impact factor for this type of journal?
      • JDS - 2.28 in 2006; JAS - 1.98; LPS - 1.13; RND – 1.82; Animal Science – 1.02; Acta Agr. – 0.33
    • Maximize impact factor via max. focus on potentially high impact papers?
    • Or focus on papers from the scientist of the “constituency”?
  • Rapid handling of papers?



















Concluding remarks

  • Research from DJF is central to all journals

  • All journals try, in different ways, to expand the traditional area

    • Biomedical
    • Human health aspects
    • Tropical
    • Genetic ressources
    • Companion animals
    • Animal models
    • Aquaculture
    • Ethics
  • The hunt for high impact factor is futile for animal scientists

  • FOCUS ON REAL IMPACT

    • Publish in animal
    • or another animal science journal
