New PSA Journal Guidelines
As you already know, the Poultry Science Association has entered into a new publishing agreement with Elsevier, Inc. to publish its two scientific journals, beginning January 1, 2020. Concurrently, The Journal of Applied Poultry Research will change the format of its Materials and Methods and References in all future published articles, to align more closely with the format of Poultry Science. This new format will apply to all articles submitted on or after October 1, 2019. Until then, current JAPR format still applies.
The new formatting guidelines are detailed below:
Materials and Methods
All sources of products, equipment, and chemicals used in the experiments must be specified parenthetically at first mention in text, tables, and figures [i.e., (model 123, ABC Corp., Provo, UT)]. Model and catalog numbers should be included. Information shall include the full corporate name (including division, branch, or other subordinate part of the corporation, if applicable), city, and state (country if outside the United States), or Web address. Street addresses need not be given unless the reader would not be able to determine the full address for mailing purposes easily by consulting standard references.
Citations in Text: In the body of the manuscript, refer to authors as follows: Smith and Jones (1992) or Smith and Jones (1990, 1992). If the sentence structure requires that the authors’ names be included in parentheses, the proper format is (Smith and Jones, 1982; Jones, 1988a,b; Jones et al., 1993). Where there are more than two authors of one article, the first author’s name is followed by the abbreviation et al. More than one article listed in the same sentence of text must be in chronological order first, and alphabetical order for two publications in the same year. Work that has not been accepted for publication shall be listed in the text as: “J. E. Jones (institution, city, and state, personal communication).” The author’s own un- published work should be listed in the text as “(J. Smith, unpublished data).” Personal communications and un- published data must not be included in the References section.
Revised Instructions to Authors
The revised instructions to authors go into affect on October 1, 2019 and are available online now.
Call for 2020 Symposium

Any symposium requesting funding from PSA will be required to publish the symposium papers in Poultry Science or The Journal of Applied Poultry Research .

A formal announcement will be distributed at a later date with a link where proposals can be submitted.

The deadline for submission is Monday, September 23 at 11:59 pm CST.
