Drawbacks This new way of accessing scientific communication.

The second workshop of the conference was proposed and coordinated by Prof. Christian Rutz (School of Biology, University of St Andrews) and the Strange Methodological Framework, which is designed to help scientists identify, reduce and document bias in animal behavioral research and related research domains. In many laboratory studies and field studies, when behavioral tests are used on subjects, these biases can be unintentional, affecting transparency to the reproducibility of studies. During the workshop, through examples (case studies), the components of Strange and the urgent need for support from scientific publishers were reviewed. By the organization of the Red CIBA-ISAE conference, the scientific community is encouraged to use this method to reduce bias and improve research excellence.

The second of the main presentations, titled ‘From the Emotions to the Affective State of Animals’. Is there a theoretical framework for the study of mental health of animals?’, was given by? elodi chalou (INRAE, France).

The various presentations and posters presented during the conference served to reaffirm the quality of the science in animal welfare developed in Spain.
