ADSA announces new sections for Journal of Dairy Science

December 09, 2015

Champaign, Illinois - Dec. 9, 2015 - The American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA®) announced new sections for its scholarly publication, Journal of Dairy Science®, in its December issue. The changes, which will go into effect beginning with the January 2016 issue of the journal, include moving from four sections to six subsections in dairy foods and six subsections in dairy production to further distinguish content.

Journal of Dairy Science had used the previous sections for a quarter century, but Editor-in-Chief Matt Lucy (University of Missouri) felt those headings had outlived their usefulness, necessitating change.

"When I came on as editor-in-chief we struggled to fit our content into the traditional journal sections established over 25 years ago. I felt that the problem was that the dairy industry had changed but the sections in the journal had stayed the same," Lucy said. "So we looked at our content and thought about the future to develop new sections that hopefully will serve us for the next 25 years. The new sections are aligned with what we currently publish and are also designed to capture important topics that we think will be actively researched in the future."

With the change, the journal Table of Contents will feature subsections for the first time. Dairy Foods, the section that receives the most submissions, will now be subdivided into six, more specific content areas: Processing and Engineering; Chemistry and Materials Science; Microbiology and Safety; Bioactivity and Human Health; Sensory Analysis; and Resources and Environment.

The new dairy production sections in Journal of Dairy Science include Physiology; Management and Economics; Health, Behavior, and Well-being; Animal Nutrition; Breeding, Genetics, and Genomics; and Resources and Environment. Our Industry Today will be renamed Dairy Industry Today, but its scope will remain the same.

Despite the changes to the sections of Journal of Dairy Science, the submission process for authors remains familiar. The journal editorial staff has worked hard to create a very specific list of topics expected to be published in each section, which is accessible through the usual submission procedure through ScholarOne.

"All of our existing authors should be accommodated by the change, and others who have not published with us before may submit to Journal of Dairy Science when they see the updated content as defined by our new section headings," commented Lucy.

Full details, including editors for each section, will be included in the December and January issues of Journal of Dairy Science.
