Elsevier and ADSA announce winners of first annual Journal of Dairy Science Most Cited Awards

Amsterdam, June 22, 2011 Elsevier, world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and the American Dairy Science Association (ADSA) announce the winners of the first annual Journal of Dairy Science (JDS) Most Cited Awards. Papers published in JDS throughout 2008 were eligible and citations from date of publication until April 15, 2011 were taken into consideration. Awards are being conferred in each of the four sections comprising the Journal's content: Dairy Foods, Physiology and Management, Nutrition, Feeding and Calves, and Genetics and Breeding.

"The number of citations a published study receives is a valid indicator of its importance to its research community. Our intent in initiating the Journal of Dairy Science (JDS) Most Cited Awards program is to formally recognize contributors to JDS whose work is significantly impacting research and the dairy industry," commented Roger D. Shanks, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of JDS and professor, Department of Animal Sciences, University of Illinois, Urbana. "While US-based, we are truly international in scope, an indication of which is the fact that two of the four papers originated from research groups outside of the US. Although JDS may be perceived as being highly biological, two of the four most cited papers were extremely quantitative."

Award-winning papers receiving the highest number of citations in each of four sections are:
