Journal of Ornithology

The 'Journal für Ornithologie' has been the DO-G’s periodical since 1853. Therefore, it is the oldest still existing ornithological periodical worldwide. In 2004, with the conversion to the English language as the Journal of Ornithology, it made its entry on the international stage. Very successfully positioned, it also provides young scientists of the next generation with a worldwide audience.

More information about the Journal, especially for authors, can be found here.
