The Journal entitled “Scientific Papers, Animal Science Series” is a scientific issue published by the Faculty of Animal Science, belonging of the “ION IONESCU DE LA BRAD” University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine, Iasi. The tome is published twice every, during May and November and comprises the papers presented within the International Scientific Symposium, organized during October, as well as other scientific results achieved throughout the year.
About the Journal
Lucrari Stiintifice Journal, Seria Zootehnie is a title of the specialty field, with a solid tradition, which comprises the scientific articles based on some studies and works of scientific research within the main agricultural fields. The tome published nowadays originates from the Annals of the Iasi Agronomic Institute, published since 1957 by the Agro-Forestry Publishing house and entitled „Yearbook of the scientific papers”.
Our current publication, entitled Lucrari Stiintifice Journal, Seria Zootehnie was firstly published in 1968. Then, in 1997, the actual template was launched and the publication received a new ISSN code, according to the international regulations.
The importance of the journal is also given by the scientific content of the papers accepted for publishing. Concerning the quality standards, the journal passed through an ascendant transformation, reaching thus full consensus with the trend given by the publishing of scientific materials in Europe and worldwide.
The Journal plays a main role within the national scientific community, because it facilitates the publishing of several data from all the fields related to animal husbandry management and rural development.
There are various scientific topics published in the journal, but they are specifically related to the animal husbandry field:
- Physiology, breeding and genetic improvement of livestock;
- Economic Sciences and Rural Development;
- Fodder base production, Nutrition and Feeding;
- Technologies applied in animal husbandry;
- Processing of animal production and food safety;

INTRODUCTION It will not exceed 1500 characters, including spaces. It will synthetically reveal the importance of the investigations, arguing in terms of their scientific opportunity. Any reference data from the scientific informational flow should be quoted within, in order to reveal the opportunity of the own researches. Also, in order to comply with the limit specified for the Introduction, to avoid repetition, we suggest to quote no more than 3-4 references when any particular concept must be argued.
MATERIAL AND METHOD It is recommended to include in the paper those data that were achieved using methods which comply with all biological, analytical and statistical techniques. If the data are issued from the usage of some new methods or from others that supposed modifications of the standard procedures, they must be mentioned. The biological material presentation must include the following elements: species, breed, gender, body weight, age or age category. There will be also specified the conditions existing during data sampling, surgical techniques, measurements and statistical models, all clearly and briefly described.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS ((The RESULTScan be presented together with or apart from the DISCUSSIONS). It is recommended to use tables as presentation form of the results. In order to allow the reader to correctly interpret the data, the presentation of the significant results must be associated, within the debate, with any information concerning the kind and volume of the original data and their variability. When necessary and appropriate, the data might be related to other results in various bibliographic sources of the scientific field.
DISCUSSIONS (only when they are presented apart from the RESULTS). They should strictly refer to the scientific results interpretation. To enhance the quality of the scientific work, the discussions must refer to the studied biological mechanisms, and also must comprise comparisons with other results in the national and international references. The resumption of any previously presented results should be avoided. In there will occur differences, as compared to the values quoted by other authors, or other inconsistencies in the results, they should be highlighted, reasoned and explained in terms of science.
The Tables will be numbered in succession, as they appear in the paper. Abbreviations used in the table should be explained in footnotes (superscript numbered) placed just under the table. Consequently, the table might be able to be interpreted separately of the text. Differences between the averages (means) on the same row or column will be marked by the "superscript letters" (eg, a, b, b, c, cd).
