Aims and Scope

Animal Molecular Breeding is committed to publishing and disseminating all the latest and outstanding research articles, letters and reviews in all areas of animal molecular breeding, including genetics, breeding, as well as the related field.


All papers chosen for publications should be creative reviews and opinions or innovative research work in the field of animal breeding, including animal transgene, molecular genetics, genetic diversity, reproduction, advanced breeding technologies, evolution of domestic animals, and other related information about animal molecular breeding. The primary criterion for publication is new insights that are not only of broad interest to animal geneticists and breeders, teachers/students/researchers engaged in animal breeding, but are also appropriate for R & D personnel as well as readers interested in genetics and breeding.



The authors permanently reserve the copyright for their publications and have granted the rights to any third party in advance for using, reproducing or disseminating the work under the terms of copyright and license of the AnimalSci Publisher's constitutions and adopted law and regulations.

Article processing
Scientists all over the world are invited to be as peer reviewers for this journal. All submission will be automatically transferred online to the reviewers by Manuscript Proceeding System in the AnimalSci Publisher prior to CrossRef's plagiarism check (see AnimalSci Publisher peer review policy for further information).
Animal Molecular Breeding offers a fast publication schedule whilst maintaining rigorous peer review. Normally the publication period is two or four weeks depend on the speed of peer review. Using the recommended manuscript preparation formats will largely speed up the paper procedures and shorten the periods. Research articles will be published electronically in provisional PDF immediately upon acceptance. A fully structured web version and PDF download version will be uploaded within four weeks after acceptance.
Animal Molecular Breeding is affiliated with other biology journals published by AnimalSci Publisher, including Genomics and Applied Biology and other journals. If referees judge that a manuscript is sound but not of special interest and therefore not appropriate for Animal Molecular Breeding, the referee reports can be shared with other journals published by AnimalSci Publisher. Transferring a manuscript from one journal to another will not incur delays. Conversely, if a manuscript submitted to a sister journal in the AnimalSci Publisher series is judged to be of exceptional interest by the referees and editors. We may offer publication in Animal Molecular Breeding.
Article-processing charges
Open access publications are not without costs. As a publisher, AnimalSci Publisher needs to pay platform operation fees to publishing platform operators. These fees are used for server rentals, journal publishing systems, publishing databases, access space, software upgrades, and the daily operation and maintenance of the journal publishing system. In order to promote the prosperity and development of open access journals, we encourage research institutions, researchers, and authors publishing in AnimalSci Publisher journals to make voluntary donations. We appreciate your support for the open access publishing model.
