The European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP) is a federation whose members are national organizations working in the animal science sector from over 35 countries of Europe and the Mediterranean area. EAAP has extensive experience in the promotion of scientific research and its dissemination and application into practice. EAAP has also a long tradition in the development of dissemination tools, training activities for scientists and the organization of international conferences. Moreover, EAAP has extensive experience in publishing both at scientific and technical level. EAAP has been responsible for communication, dissemination and knowledge transfer activities within several EU-funded projects – since FP6 – and technical themes. By developing online channels such as websites and social media, EAAP facilitates access to data and knowledge for scientists and technicians from all over Europe and the rest of the world. EAAP has a large database with more than 6.000 contacts of scientists and research institutes active in the field of animal science, coming from European and Mediterranean countries. EAAP has also 11 Study Commissions and several Working Groups focused on analyzing and managing issues related to different aspects of animal science and the livestock industry. EAAP is co-founder and co-owner of the academic journals Animal and Animal Frontiers. Both journals are performing very well, as we can read from the recent analysis of Impact Factor. Animal, the international journal of animal biosciences has been recognised with a 2021 Impact Factor of 3.730 (previously 3.240), ranking 8/63 in the Agriculture, Dairy & Animal Science category (previously 9/63) and 10/144 in the Veterinary Science Category (previously 15/146). Even a bigger step forward has been done by Animal Frontiers, reaching an Impact factor of 6,762 that put this journal as 2nd in the 63 ranked journals of Agriculture, Dairy & Animal Science category.
