Human—Animal Interactions – an open access interdisciplinary journal devoted to the dissemination of research in fields related to interactions between non-human animals and their human counterparts – has joined CABI’s publishing portfolio.
The expanded journal is created from the Human Animal Interaction Bulletin (HAIB) which was launched in 2013 as the research in the field of human—animal interactions was beginning its exponential growth.
It provides an inviting publication outlet for researchers, clinicians, practitioners and students working in different disciplines, across the globe, who are interested in advancing the field of human—animal interactions through scholarly research.
The journal will invite a broad range of article types to report new research, synthesise knowledge, and provide a platform for discussion.
To ensure that Human-Animal Interactions is pertinent and relevant to both practitioners and scientific researchers, contributions are encouraged from a broad spectrum of topics and investigative techniques utilized by those in social sciences and humanities as well as animal-related fields.
The journal is welcoming article submissions across topics pertaining to animal health, human health, and a broad range of disciplines (such as counselling, economics and animal science) and settings and activities (for instance, hospital, disaster, war and crisis).
Professor Lori Kogan, Editor-in-Chief of Human-Animal Interactions, said, “I envision Human—Animal Interactions as the cutting-edge resource for the advancement of the studies of human animal interactions and a catalyst for the expansion of dialogue and collaboration amongst researchers, practitioners and students across disciplines and geographical borders.
“In order to make the journal pertinent and relevant to both practitioners and scientific researchers, contributions will be encouraged from a broad spectrum of topics and investigative techniques utilized by those in the social sciences and humanities.”
