Description The ILAR Journal is the peer-reviewed, theme-oriented publication of the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research (ILAR), which provides timely information for all who study, use, care for, and oversee the use of animals in research. The journal publishes original articles that review research on animals either as direct subjects or as surrogates for humans. ILAR promotes the high-quality and humane care and use of animals in research and the appropriate consideration and use of alternatives. Through the ILAR Journal, expert committee reports, workshops, presentations, and other means, ILAR identifies and disseminates science for improved animal welfare and evaluates and encourages the development and validation of non-animal alternatives in research and testing.
