Guide for Authors

The Animal Production Research is an open access peer-reviewed journal which is published in Persian with English abstracts in one volume with four issues per year, as a printed journal and in electronic version. This journal does not receive article processing charges (APCs) or submission charges.

This journal publishes original research papers and short communications on basic and applied researches relating to domestic animals (cows, sheep, goats and poultry); however, contributions on other animals may be published where relevant.

  • Original      Research papers: Most papers published in Animal Production Research are original      research papers. These should describe new and carefully confirmed      findings, and experimental procedures should be given in sufficient detail      for others to verify the work.
  • Short      Communications:  A short communication is a concise but complete      description of a limited investigation, which will not be included in a      later paper. Therefore, this type of paper is appropriate for recording      the results of complete small investigations or giving details of new      models or hypotheses, innovative methods, techniques or apparatus.

The double-blind refereeing, where anonymity is preserved both for the authors and the referees, has been adopted by Animal Production Research; therefore, authors are asked to remove their names, addresses and email from the first page of the submitted manuscript, and the acknowledgement section. This information should be submitted as one separate file. Submission of the manuscripts and all correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and requests for revision, takes place through journal website at
