The Sheep and Goat Research Journal (previously the Sheep Research Journal) began production in 1984 because sheep producers, extension professionals, researchers and others saw the need for a vehicle where practical, adaptive sheep research could be published. The journal provides authors an avenue to publish peer-reviewed research.
"We are excited to report that all of the issues of the journal have now been placed into an electronic file," said Peter Orwick, executive director of the American Sheep Industry Association. "This format allows those interested in reading earlier research to be able to access it easier than hunting down paper copies of the articles."
In 2005, the journal transitioned from a hard-copy publication to an online journal. Work to digitize earlier editions of the journal has been ongoing. Issues dated 1984 to current are now available online at www.sheepusa.org/Sheep_and_Goat_Research_Journal.
