The American Ornithologists’ Union and the Cooper Ornithological Society are in the midst of historic collaborations in publication and administration aimed at streamlining their activities to avoid redundancies and strengthen North American ornithology. One effort toward that goal is the production of a joint newsletter, and here is the first attempt:
Welcome to the first Auk and Condor joint newsletter.
The Joint Newsletter for The Auk: Ornithological Advances and The Condor: Ornithological Applications contains article highlights of recently published articles (open access), news and announcements, messages from the Editors, and useful links. The newsletter will be sent once every 2 to 3 months.
Both journals have undergone many changes, including weekly online final publication, refocus of the research covered in each journal, a new editorial and management team, redesign of articles and covers, a joint Journal website at aoucospubs.org, and a joint publications office–the Central Ornithology Publications Office (COPO) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|The Auk: Ornithological Advances is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research and scholarship advancing the fundamental scientific knowledge of bird species and broad biological concepts (e.g., ecology, evolution, behavior, physiology, genetics) through studies of bird species. Articles often introduce or employ innovative empirical and theoretical approaches and analyses.|
|The Condor: Ornithological Applications is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research, syntheses, and assessments that address ornithological applications in two ways: the application of scientific theory and methods to the conservation, management, and ecology of birds; and the application of ornithological knowledge to conservation and management policy and other issues of importance to society. The journal aims to reach both research ornithologists and practitioners.|
