Editorial Policies and Procedures
Poultry Science publishes the results of fundamental and applied research concerning poultry, poultry products, and avian species in general. Submitted manuscripts shall provide new facts or confirmatory data. Papers dealing with experimental design, teaching, extension endeavors, or those of historical or biographical interest may also be appropriate. A limited number of review papers will be considered for publication if they contribute significant additional knowledge, or synthesis of knowledge, to a subject area. Papers that have been, or are scheduled to be, published elsewhere will not be accepted. Publication of a preliminary report, such as an abstract, does not preclude consideration of a complete report for publication as long as it has not been published in full in a proceedings or similar scientific publication; appropriate identification of previously published preliminary reports should be provided in a title page footnote. Translation of an article into other languages for publication requires approval by the editor-in-chief. Opinions or views expressed in papers published by Poultry Science are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent the opinion of the Poultry Science Association or the editor-in-chief.
No correction to a paper already published will be carried out without an erratum or corrigendum (as applicable). This applies to papers on Advance Access and published within an issue. This means that any change carried out to a paper already published online will have a corresponding erratum or corrigendum published with its own separate DOI. Whether on Advance Access or in an issue, if an erratum or corrigendum is published, the online version of the paper will also be corrected online, and the correction notice will mention this. Corrections will only be made if the publication record is seriously affected by the academic accuracy of published information.
Authors' corrections to Supplementary Data are made only in exceptional circumstances (for example, major errors that compromise the conclusions of the study). Because the Supplementary Data is part of the original paper and hence the published record, the information cannot be updated if new data have become available or interpretations have changed.
