Elsevier Health Sciences

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 Wisconsin

Pregnancy Diagnosis and Resynchronization Collection

Compiled by Paulo D. Carvalho, Rafael Barletta, and Paul M. Fricke, Department of Dairy Science, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Editor's Choice

Editor's Choice is a feature of each Journal issue, and articles selected are made available for free access.

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:

Tail Docking Collection

The Journal of Dairy Science has assembled a collection of research articles on the subject and has made these freely available to better inform discussion in the dairy community.
