Animal Science faculty member is editor for new animal science publication
By Kim Markesich and Sara Putnam
Steven Zinn, professor of animal science, is an editor of the new animal science magazine Animal Frontiers: The review magazine of animal agriculture, which was launched July 12 at the annual meeting of the American Society of Animal Science in New Orleans. Zinn also serves as editor-in-chief of the Journal of Animal Science.
The new publication is a collaboration between the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS), the Canadian Society of Animal Science (CSAS) and the Federation of Animal Science (EAAP). The inaugural issue focused on the role of animals and animal agriculture in carbon cycles and carbon footprints, and a subsequent issue will address water use.
Each issue of Animal Frontiers will consist of a series of invited, peer-reviewed articles that present several international perspectives on the status of high-impact, global issues in animal agriculture today. Every issue will include articles around a theme of broad and current interest within animal science and animal agriculture, an introduction to the theme from the guest editor-in-chief and letters to the editor to encourage debate.
Animal Frontiers is published by ASAS, CSAS and EAAP. The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is a sustaining partner in the publication.
