Readership

An interdisciplinary journal, Animal Sentience (ASent) publishes current empirical findings on what, when and how nonhuman animals feel, along with the practical, methodological, legal, ethical, sociological, and philosophical implications of the findings. All articles are followed by Open Peer Commentary from specialists in the fields covered by the article; the author then responds to the commentaries.

Publication Schedule

Articles are published online as soon as they have been peer-reviewed, accepted and edited. Commentaries and Responses are published immediately after editorial review. For citation purposes, the volume number is the year of publication and the issue number reflects the order in which papers appear in the journal. The submission process is automated through the Journal’s website.
