An international journal reporting on the application of ethology to animals managed by humans.
Official Journal of the International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE)

This journal publishes relevant information on the behaviour of domesticated and utilized animals.

Topics covered include:

Behaviour of farm, zoo and laboratory animals in relation to animal management and welfare

Behaviour of companion animals in relation to behavioural problems, for example, in relation to the training of dogs for different purposes, in relation to behavioural problems

Studies of the behaviour of wild animals when these studies are relevant from an applied perspective, for example in relation to wildlife management, pest management or nature conservation

Methodological studies within relevant fields



The principal subjects are farm, companion and laboratory animals, including, of course, poultry. The journal also deals with the following animal subjects:

Those involved in any farming system, e.g. deer, rabbits and fur-bearing animals

Those in ANY form of confinement, e.g. zoos, safari parks and other forms of display

Feral animals, and any animal species which impinge on farming operations, e.g. as causes of loss or damage

Species used for hunting, recreation etc. may also be considered as acceptable subjects in some instances

Laboratory animals, if the material relates to their behavioural requirements
