Animalia is a peer-reviewed, digital journal for Anthrozoology/Human-Animal Studies scholars. This project was created and is maintained by a handful of students and alumni of the Anthrozoology Master of Science program at Canisius College. The aim of Animalia is to bring together scholars from all disciplines in the vast world of Anthrozoology/Human-Animal Studies, and provide a forum for critical thought, shared ideas, and enlightening discussions as this burgeoning field continues to develop.
What is Anthrozoology?
Anthrozoology means recognizing that other animals are uniquely complex, sentient beings and deserving of compassion. It means uncovering the intricacies of our relationships with them and determining how best we can all coexist.

Call For Submissions
Animalia: An Anthrozoology Journal is an online, digital journal for early career Anthrozoology/Animal Studies scholars, graduate students, and undergraduate students*.
Animalia has two aims: to explore and advance the vast range of disciplines in human-animal studies and animal studies, and to encourage exchange among scholars and students by providing a forum for critical thought, shared ideas, and enlightening discussions.
We invite innovative submissions that situate these topics within a variety of frameworks and approaches.
We are accepting the following types of work:
Literature reviews and other scholarly papers
Media (book, movie) reviews
Creative pieces (photography, drawings, short stories, poetry)
Our Submissions page will provide you with more information if you are interested in submitting your work for review.
All paper submissions submitted to Animalia pass through a three-stage peer-review and revision process:
(1) the submission is initially reviewed by the editors of Animalia;
(2) if it is judged to be potentially publishable, then the article is sent to our peer review team for further review;
(3) if the peer review process is positive, an Animalia editor will work with the author to prepare the submission for eventual publication.
Media reviews and creative submissions undergo editorial review.
*Undergraduate submissions should be accompanied by a faculty recommendation.
