Student Access to ASAS Journals during COVID-19

As students come back from spring break and move to eLearning amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, ASAS recognizes that it may be more difficult to get access to the our suite of journals while offsite. As such, ASAS is suspending our membership fees for undergraduates for the next 60 days and dropping our graduate membership fees to $5.00. Membership gets you full and immediate access to  Journal of Animal ScienceTranslational Animal Science and Animal Frontiers in addition to a host of other benefits:

  • Reduced registration costs to the Annual Meeting, all sectional meetings, and international meetings.

  • Opportunities to serve in leadership roles both on boards (national or sectional) and committees.
