Articles on the Use of Animals in Laboratories

This is a collection of articles on animals in laboratories from the Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science (JAAWS). JAAWS is the leading peer-reviewed journal on the science of animal welfare for veterinarians, scientists and public policy makers. It presents articles and reports on practices that demonstrably enhance the welfare of wildlife, companion animals and animals used in research, agriculture and zoos.
