The Journal of Field Ornithology
The Journal of Field Ornithology is the quarterly publication of the Association of Field Ornithologists.
JFO is available online to all AFO members. Access instructions are sent to members at the start of each year. Instructions can also be obtained by contacting Wiley-Blackwell customer services at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Others may be able to access JFO articles at the following sites:
- 2006-present at Wiley
- 1980-3 years ago at JSTOR
- 2003-2005 at BioOne
- Older JFO articles (1930-1999) are available for free download through the Searchable Ornithological Research Archive (SORA).
JFO welcomes original articles that emphasize the descriptive or experimental study of birds in their natural habitats. Articles describing techniques or methodological refinements must have relevance beyond a single species or study system. Contributions are encouraged from throughout the world, but must be written in English. JFO is especially interested in studies conducted in the Neotropics and those involving participation by nonprofessional ornithologists.
To submit a manuscript, review the Instructions for Authors.
Editorial assistance is available to authors for which English is not their primary language.
