AABP's Bovine Practitioner articles can now be read online by all.
Partnership with Texas A&M makes AABP Bovine Practitioner articles open-access for non-members, too.

For the first time, peer-reviewed articles on cattle health, science and management published in the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) Bovine Practitioner publication are available free online to veterinarians, students, researchers and the public.

Through a 2017 partnership with the Texas A&M University Medical Services Library, the Bovine Practitioner issues were scanned and digitized to provide high-quality searchable scans.

"More than 50 years of Bovine Practitioner articles – every one of them from the first through the most current issue – are now available in a search-friendly format," says AABP publications editor and past president Dr. Robert Smith.

Scans are searchable by keyword and indexed by article, and will be searchable on search engines such as Google Scholar. The Bovine Practitioner is now an open-access journal, expanding the reach of the journal and increasing impact for authors, Smith says.

You can find the Bovine Practitioner at To view and search, you must register on the site.

AABP says it plans are to add the AABP Annual Conference and AABP Recent Veterinary Graduate Conference proceedings on a similar platform.
