Pet Behaviour Science is a new open access journal, which publishes original papers relating to all aspects of the behaviour of pets, including their relationships with humans. As a multidisciplinary journal, Pet Behaviour Science welcomes submissions from the arts and humanities, behavioural and biological sciences, cognitive science, social sciences and the health sciences.
The principal subjects are dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and any other animal species when cared for as pets, or animals belonging to these species but which are not used as pets, such as laboratory dogs, when the results could be interesting for pets as well.
Pet Behaviour Science has instituted a double-blind peer review process, where neither the authors' nor the reviewers' identities are known to each other. Reciprocal anonymity is suggested to provide a more objective and potentially less biased assessment of manuscripts, and help ensure that the process is fair to both junior and well-established scientists. The implementation of double-blind review aims at ensuring our reputation for integrity, fairness, and openness to new ideas.
Readers can access freely to the articles once they are published. As well, publishing in Pet Behaviour Science is free for authors. There are no hidden charges at all.
