Virtual Special Issue: 30th Anniversary of Anthrozoös


Anthrozoös celebrated its 30th birthday in 2017. To honor this occasion, we decided it would be a good time to look back over the years and see just what our readers have been downloading, citing, and talking about on social media. To do this, our publishers, Taylor & Francis, used the following information: Top downloaded in 2017; Top downloaded in 2018; Top altmetric scoring in the last year; Top cited in 2017; and Top cited of all time. And to mark our 30th anniversary, we are publishing the top 30 papers based on these criteria in this Virtual Special Issue. The papers are in chronological order and all are free to access until 31 July 2019.
