January 2019 report
Written by S.Y. Landau, Editor-in-Chief, Small Ruminant Research (Elsevier)
Small Ruminant Research (SRR) is the official journal of the International Goat Association (IGA). Good science, relevance to small ruminant farming, and novelty are the major criteria of publication of our journal. Maintaining the quality of English is an ever-lasting challenge, as the majority of our contributors, reviewers and associate editors are not native English speakers.
Mrs. Tova Deutch surveyed the 1618 published papers from the last 6 years to identify strengths and weaknesses. The results are presented HERE (for IGA members only).

Do we have more data on 2017 and 2018? I encourage everyone to do what we can to reverse the decline in impact factor for SRR (from the high of more than 1.3 to 0.9 currently), so that SRR can continue to attract quality scientific papers. Thank you to those who work hard for the betterment of SRR.
