About the Journal


Research Journal of Zoology is a scholarly peer-reviewed, academic journal that publishes original research articles undergoing peer review process with the help of experts in the field of zoology.

Research Journal of Zoology (RJZ) is an Open Access journal focusing on zoology as one subject providing an immense platform to publish original research articles, review articles, case reports, mini review, short communication, etc.

Due to advances in life sciences, zoology is being compromised by one or more sub-disciplinaries. However the recent development in the research on genetics and evolution has led to restoration of zoological sciences promoting a rigorous research in various fields of zoology enclosing the distinct aspects of animal life from gene to the ecosystem.

The journal publishes papers with integrative and preliminary approach to descriptive zoology, animal physiology and behavior ecology, developmental and functional evolution, cell biology, etc.

Manuscript can be submitted via Online Submission 

The journal scope covers these major topics but is not restricted to:

• Zoography
• Comparative Anatomy
• Animal Physiology
• Behavioral Ecology
• Ethology or Animal Behavior
• Invertebrate Zoology
• Vertebrate Zoology
• Animal Genetics and Cytogenetics
• Developmental Biology
• Molecular Cell Biology
• Soil Zoology
• Paleozoology

Manuscripts are evaluated by experts who are members of our Editorial Board Approved by at least two independent review comments to maintain the high quality processing of manuscripts. The articles published in the journal follow the peer-reviewed process to maintain the standards of publications and Foster the readers and society as well.

Animal Science
Animal Science is worried about the science and business of delivering local domesticated animals species, including yet not restricted to meat cows, dairy cows, stallions, poultry, sheep, and swine. A creature researcher applies standards of the organic, physical, and sociologies to the issues related with domesticated animals generation and administration. Animal Science is additionally worried about nourishments of creature inception: meat, dairy sustenances, and eggs. The nourishment business is one of the biggest and most vital ventures in the United States. Furthermore, creature science is worried about parts of sidekick creatures, including their nourishment, care, and welfare.

Zoological Science
Zoological Science concerns with different properties, vital fact of animals, animal behavior and their life. Generally it is the study of animals and their day to day routine from genetic level to ecosystem or animal kingdom which covers their structure, habits, classification and their interaction with the ecosystem.

Marine Science
Marine life science is the investigation of creatures that live in the seas or other marine water bodies. In this unique situation, the word marine is exchangeable with saltwater. Along these lines, a sea life researcher thinks about living things that live in saltwater situations. A few cases of marine situations may incorporate wetlands or estuaries. This is as opposed to freshwater science, which is the investigation of creatures in freshwater, similar to lakes and waterways.

Animal Physiology
Animal physiology explores the internal physical and chemical functions of animals belonging to different genus and species. It the part of science which studies the basic functioning of living organisms or any of its parts or processes. Animal Physiology is important as it provide factors that give animals a better quality of life.

Animal Habitat
In biology, a living space is the sort of regular habitat in which a specific types of living being lives. It is described by both physical and natural highlights. An animal types' territory is those spots where it can discover nourishment, asylum, insurance and mates for generation.

Animal Behavior
Animal Behavior is the interaction of animals with nature, living beings and with each other. It is the relation between the animal and its surroundings and their relation with physical surroundings such as food, prey, predators, their mates and young ones. The active response done by the animal due to any change in the surroundings in the animal behavior.

Animal Diversity
Evolution of animals began almost 600 million years ago in the ocean since they have evolved to a wide range and diverse kingdom. Although hundreds of species of animals have been extinct today, still scientists and researchers discover new species around the world during their research in different ecosystems. The number of currently living species around the world is around 20 to 30 million.

Zoography is the study of animal description depending on their different habitats and forms around the world. Descriptive zoology or zoography describes or sort the animal kingdom according to their habitat and living structure.

Animal genetics
Animal genetics is the study of genes which were responsible for changes in heredity and variation in species of domestic and wild animals around the world. Study of animal genetics is new and useful field due to their resistance capability against many infections, fungal diseases namely tuberculosis, mastitis, foot and mouth diseases and various other diseases.

In animal reproducing, cytogenetic technique is connected to test suspicions of hypothesis. New wellsprings of hereditary variety might be chromosome modifications, duplications, aneuploidy, and euploidy. At the point when connected to cells in culture and joined with present day strategies for sub-atomic science, cytogenetic system can help find new loci, dole out qualities to particular chromosomes, and make hereditarily altered cell lines which can be brought into the germ line of creature populaces.

Animal Husbandry
Animal farming is the branch of agribusiness worried about creatures that are raised for meat, fiber, drain, eggs, or different items. It incorporates everyday care, particular reproducing and the raising of domesticated animals.

Invertebrate Zoology
Invertebrate Zoology is the study of invertebrates, animals without the backbone. Invertebrates consist of around 97 percent of total species around the world. Invertebrates are a diverse group of animal kingdom containing arthropods, different phyla of worms, echinoderms and various others sub classification contains anthropology, cnidariology, helminthology, malacology and invertebrate paleontology.

Vertebrate Zoology
Vertebrate zoology is the study of vertebrate’s i.e. Animals having back bones that include mammals, birds, reptiles, fishers, and amphibians. It consists of about 3 percent of the animal kingdom. Sub classifications of the vertebrate zoology include ichthyology, mammalogy, ornithology, herpetology and batrachology.

Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process):
Research Journal of Zoology is participating in the Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) with an additional prepayment of $99 apart from the regular article processing fee. Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process is a special service for the article that enables it to get a faster response in the pre-review stage from the handling editor as well as a review from the reviewer. An author can get a faster response of pre-review maximum in 3 days since submission, and a review process by the reviewer maximum in 5 days, followed by revision/publication in 2 days. If the article gets notified for revision by the handling editor, then it will take another 5 days for external review by the previous reviewer or alternative reviewer.

Acceptance of manuscripts is driven entirely by handling editorial team considerations and independent peer-review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to regular peer-reviewed publication or a fast editorial review process. The handling editor and the article contributor are responsible for adhering to scientific standards. The article FEE-Review process of $99 will not be refunded even if the article is rejected or withdrawn for publication.

The corresponding author or institution/organization is responsible for making the manuscript FEE-Review Process payment. The additional FEE-Review Process payment covers the fast review processing and quick editorial decisions, and regular article publication covers the preparation in various formats for online publication, securing full-text inclusion in a number of permanent archives like HTML, XML, and PDF, and feeding to different indexing agencies.


Articles published in Research Journal of Zoology have been cited by esteemed scholars and scientists all around the world. Research Journal of Zoology has got h-index 2 , which means every article in Research Journal of Zoology has got 2 average citations.
