Journal of Caribbean Ornithology

The Journal of Caribbean Ornithology is a refereed scientific journal, produced by the non-profit society BirdsCaribbean.  The journal has been in publication since 2005 and serves as an important resource for ornithological information in the Caribbean.  We publish in English, Spanish, and French, depending on the author's primary language, and we include translations of the title, abstract, and key words in each of the non-primary languages.  Our over-arching goal is to provide freely accessible information that expands the scientific understanding of avian ecology in the Caribbean and serves to inform conservation decisions.  We welcome submissions of research articles, notes, review papers, and book reviews on all aspects of avian biology, ecology, natural history, and conservation within the Caribbean.  All of our manuscripts are open-access and can be downloaded from the Current Issue, or by searching our Archives.
