Journal of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (JAALAS)

The Journal of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (JAALAS) serves as an official communication vehicle for the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS). The journal includes a section of refereed articles and a section of AALAS association news.

All signed articles, including refereed articles and book reviews, editorials, committee reports, and news and commentary, reflect the individual views of the authors and are not official views of AALAS. The mission of the refereed section of the journal is to disseminate high-quality, peer-reviewed information on animal biology, technology, facility operations, management, and compliance as relevant to the AALAS membership. JAALAS accepts research reports (data-based) or scholarly reports (literature-based), with the caveat that all articles, including solicited manuscripts, must include appropriate references and must undergo peer review.

The journal is published six times a year: January, March, May, July, September, and November. Dr. Linda Toth is the editor in chief over Comparative Medicine and JAALAS; Dr. Susan Compton of Yale University is the associate editor for JAALAS. The production office for the journal is located at the AALAS national office in Memphis, TN. For more information about the journal, contact us.
