The World's Poultry Science Journal
In 1928, in order to improve the ways in which it achieved one of its primary objectives - the dissemination of knowledge - the World’s Poultry Science Association began publishing its own journal. Initially, the journal was know as the International Review of Poultry Science, and it was published biannually in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and it continued that way for 13 volumes up to 1940. In 1945, following the end of World War II, the journal was re-started under a new name, the World's Poultry Science Journal, and was published on a quarterly basis. The publication frequency of four issues each year continued from 1945 until the end of 1980. For the following 16 years the journal was published three times each year, returning to a quarterly frequency with volume 53 in 1997.
At present, the journal’s publication is overseen by an Editor, an Assistant Editor, six Associate Editors, and 20 members of an International Editorial Board. The World's Poultry Science Journal publishes review articles on virtually all aspects of poultry production and poultry science. Some of the review articles are commissioned by the editor, but the majority consist of papers from WPSA sponsored Congresses or Symposia, or are submitted unsolicited from WPSA members. The WPSJ is published in both a printed and an on-line form by Cambridge University Press.
The online publishing agreement for this Journal, originally made with CABI Publishing, has now been assigned to Cambridge University Press who last year acquired the CABI primary journals activities. The initial transition phase, during which staff from both CABI and Cambridge University Press worked to ensure a smooth transfer of subscriber records and production processes, has just been completed. As a result of the change in ownership, from Volume 63, 2007 the online edition of World’s Poultry Science Journal (including the digitised archive from Volume 1, No. 1) will transfer from Ingenta to the Cambridge Journals Online platform.

Online Journal subscription for WPSA members
The World’s Poultry Science Journal has been available to subscribers on-line for the past three years. As a result of a change in our publishing partners (the on-line edition will be available from Cambridge University Press instead of CABI) and the work of a small sub-committee appointed at the 2005 WPSA Board meeting, members will have the option of receiving the Journal on-line instead of the print edition.
The system will be upgraded to permit searching of references, tracing citations etc. with a full range of electronic facilities.
The print version will continue to be the normal method for receiving the Journal. If you wish to receive the on-line version instead, you must indicate this by completing the form on the WPSA website (www.wpsa.com).
Most of the content of the Journal will now be included in the on-line edition with the exception of the advertisements. We will be developing a new page in the on-line version where all of our Gold and Silver sponsors will be identified, and provide direct links to their company websites.
