Open Access Animal Science

at Taylor & Francis

Open access publication can enable increased visibility and discoverability as open access articles can be read by anyone around the world. For authors, this greater visibility can result in increased readership and citations, and a chance to make an impact beyond their field.

Our open access portfolio offers an outlet for the rapid dissemination of research, including journals such as The European Zoological Journal, an internationally focused journal devoted to the study of all aspects of protozoan and animal biology and International Journal of Veterinary Science and Medicine, a peer-reviewed research publication covering all aspects of veterinary science. 

Explore our all of our open access animal science journals below, and learn more about publishing open access.

The European Zoological Journal

Fully Open Access

The European Zoological Journal (previously Italian Journal of Zoology) is an open access journal devoted to the study of all aspects of basic, comparative and applied protozoan and animal biology at molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, organismal, population, and community-ecosystem level.

Papers covering multiple levels of organization and integrative approaches to study animal form, function, development, ecology, evolution and systematics are welcome. First established in 1930 under the name of Il Bollettino di Zoologia, the journal now has an international focus, reflected through its global editorial board, and wide author and readership.
