Aims and Scope
Journal of Animal Breeding and Genomics (JABG) is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal publishing research article, review and brief notes on all aspects of genetics, breeding and genomics in domestic animal species and other species providing results of immediate interest for farm animal’s genetics. Topics covered by the journal include: conventional genetic studies, marker association study, genome wide association study, genomic selection, genome editing, next generation sequencing and OMIC analyses.The journal is published four times per year (March, June, September and December). Korean or English articles are published for the March, June and September issues, but only English articles are published for the December issue.
Copyright Transfer Agreement
Any authors may submit manuscripts and the copyright for articles which appeared in the Journal of Animal Breeding and Genomics is held by the Korean Society of Animal Breeding and Genomics.
Submission of Manuscripts
Manuscripts should be submitted directly via JABG online submission system. Technical difficulties can be resolved by contacting to: Office of Associate of Animal Breeding and Genomics, National Institute of Animal Science, ------
Manuscripts are to be submitted in their final form and must be written in English or Korean, and authors are urged to aim for clarity, brevity, and accuracy of information and language. Authors who use English as a second languages should have English Editing before submission. Using the JABG template available at http://www.JABG.org would be helpful for meeting the journal’s formatting requirements. A properly completed “Copyright Transfer Agreement” should also be supplied before the manuscript is published. All Authors including the corresponding author are asked to sign it.
Submission of a paper implies that the results reported have not been submitted, accepted or published elsewhere.
Manuscripts are submitted through the Online Submission System with HWP 2016 for Korean Manuscript and MS-word for English Manuscript.
Editorial and Review Policy
Manuscripts submitted for publication should contain no materials that violate anycopyright. Submission of amanuscript to JABG involves the tacit assurance that no similar paper has been or will be submitted for publication in other journals. Manuscripts that have been published in a conference or meeting proceedings without peer review may be submitted to JABG.It is the responsibility of the authors, not the IAS, to determine whether disclosure of their material requires the prior consent of other parties and to obtain that consent.
Statements and opinions given in work published by JABG are the expressions of the authors. Responsibility for the contents of published papers rests upon the authors, not the IAS

Topics covered by the journal include: conventional genetic studies, marker association study, genome wide association study, genomic selection, genome editing, next generation sequencing and OMIC analyses.
All manuscripts are subject to peer review for the validity of the experimental design and results, significance, and appropriateness for JABG. When manuscripts are submitted successfully to the journal online system, they are initially subjected to a pre-screening step by the Editor-in-Chief. Manuscripts that are poorly written or fail to meet the required format will be rejected in the pre-screening step without further review. Manuscripts that pass this step will be reviewed by two anonymous reviewers selected by the Editor-in-Chief or associate editors. The corresponding author is notified as soon as possible regarding the decision to accept, reject, or request revision of a manuscript. The manuscripts evaluated as “accept” or “request minor revision” by the reviewers are considered to be accepted for publication, although some revisions may be required to address the concerns of the reviewers and Editor-in-Chief. In cases where a manuscript is evaluated as “make major revisions” or “reject” by one of the reviewers, the Editor-in-Chief will analyze the reviewers’ comments thoroughly and make a decision on acceptance or rejection. If there are major flaws in the results of the research or the methodological design, the Editor-in-Chief may ask the author to clarify and resubmit or may reject the manuscript. If a manuscript is classified as “accept with revisions,” the author is expected to respond within 3 months, addressing all the comments raised by the reviewers, making appropriate corrections or stating why the comments are unreasonable. The responsible editor or a reviewer will consider the revisions, and recommend that the Editor-in-Chief either accept the manuscript for publication or reject it. The author will be informed by the Editor-in-Chief of the final decision on the publication of the manuscript. When the final revised manuscript meets all JABG content and format requirements and has been accepted for publication without additional revisions, it is scheduled for publication in the next available issue.vWhen the final revised manuscripts meets all JABG content and format requirements and has been accepted for publication without additional revisions, it is scheduled for publication in the next available issue.
This proof stage is not a time for extensive corrections, additions, or deletions. It is advised that editing be limited to the correction of typographical errors, incorrect data, and grammatical errors, and for updating information on references that had been in press. The corrections to page proofs should be sent immediately by e-mail or a fast mail service, preferably within 2 business days
JABG has no page charges. The corresponding author, at no cost, will be provided with a PDF file of the article via e-mail. Paper offprints can be ordered via the offprint order form which is sent once the article is accepted publication.
Preparation of Manuscript
The Journal of Animal Breeding and Genomics publishes Research articles, review and Brief notes. Research articles are to be arranged in the following order: Abstract (including key words less than five), Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, References, Tables, Figure legends and Figures. Results and discussion sections may be combined for brief note.
1. Title page
This should contain the title of the article, full name(s) of author(s), institutional affiliation(s) and address, and a running title (less than 50 characters including spaces). The name and complete address including phone and fax numbers and e-mail address of corresponding author, and information concerning sources of financial support should be given.
Title should be concise and clear, but informative. The initial letters of the each word except preposition and conjunction should be written in the capital letter.
3. Authors and Affiliation
