Champaign, IL, April 11, 2016 - Approximately a year ago we introduced an enhancement to the Journal of Dairy Science® (JDS) -- the Article Collections. The collections are compilations of significant papers and research developments within a particular subject area, selected by experts in that area. All papers have been published in the JDS, assuring that the information is high quality peer reviewed work that can be cited with confidence. The initial collections were:
Estrus Technology Collection
Compiled by Karmella Dolecheck, Lauren Mayo, and Jeffrey Bewley, University of Kentucky
JDS Mastitis and Milk Quality Collection
Compiled by Pamela L. Ruegg, University of Wisconsinhttp://www.
Pregnancy Diagnosis and Resynchronization Collection
Compiled by Paulo D. Carvalho, Rafael Barletta, and Paul M. Fricke, Department of Dairy Science, University of Wisconsin-Madison http://www.
Editor's Choice is a feature of each Journal issue, and articles selected are made available for free access. http://www.
The initial "Collections" have proven to be very popular but there are many other areas of interest, so we have expanded the offerings with six additional "Collections." They are:
