Without animals this planet would be a very different place, indeed many of the remaining life forms could not exist... As animals ourselves we are linked to a vast network of moving, living, reproducing organisms that form an essential part of the various ecosystems that are themselves competing for survival... By virtue of our large cognitive capacity and complex societal living structures, we manage and influence many of these ecosystems, in the most extreme way by keeping animals captive for our own benefit... Due to their widespread availability, open access journal articles are increasingly likely to be cited, and several of the established MDPI journals have already been awarded Impact Factors that are as high as many of the leading animal science journals... The page charges for Animals will be modest, in comparison with both other open access journals and the full cost of the research, and are waived for well-prepared contributions received in 2010 and 2011... For most publicly-funded research, open access is a right for the community members because the work has been funded, indirectly, from the taxes that they pay to the government... For the researcher, open access gives the opportunity to expose their work to a broader community than just their scientific peers, allowing them to gain from the vastly increased contact with those who will ultimately benefit from the research... In Animals it will be possible, and often desirable, to include video footage—for example, see the footage from a study of feeding behavior in the endangered mahogany glider as a supplementary file for this editorial—to support the arguments made in the scholarly, rigorous articles that will describe animals' place in the world today... Color figures can also be included at no extra cost, for example, Figure 1 below, which illustrates intensities of noxious gases that colleagues and I recently measured in sheep accommodation... Another advantage of electronic publishing is that articles are not limited by length, and authors are encouraged to provide adequate detail to enable the study to be fully comprehended, and extended if necessary, and the results to be utilized in further studies, for example in meta-analyses... The journal will publish regular research papers, reviews of books and topical issues, communications, and short notes... Ideas for special issues are welcomed, for example from conferences addressing a topical animal theme... Researchers are invited to submit high quality, original articles and erudite reviews that will help us to improve our understanding of the place of animals on our planet, and ultimately to benefit the lives of animals, and ourselves.

Mentions: In recent years, the range of topics covered in animal research has expanded considerably, from animal genetics, with its rapidly developing methodology and potential for change, to animal emotions, whose very existence used to be denied. In Animals it will be possible, and often desirable, to include video footage—for example, see the footage from a study of feeding behavior in the endangered mahogany glider as a supplementary file for this editorial—to support the arguments made in the scholarly, rigorous articles that will describe animals' place in the world today.
