Focus and Scope

Animal Research International is  a 100% Open Access Online Journal inaugurated in University of Nigeria to meet the growing need for an indigenous and authoritative organ for the dissemination of the results of scientific research into the fauna of Africa and the world at large. Concise contributions on investigations on faunistics, zoogeography, wildlife management, genetics, animal breeding, entomology, parasitology, pest control, ecology, malacology, phytonematology, physiology, histopathology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, microbiology, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, aquaculture, hydrobiology, fisheries biology, nutrition, immunology, pathology, anatomy, morphometrics, biometrics and any other research involving the use of animals are invited for publication. While the main objective is to provide a forum for papers describing the results of original research, review articles are also welcomed. Articles submitted to the journal is peer reviewed to ensure a high standard.
