About the journal
Chinese Birds, launched from March 2010, is an international journal of ornithology jointly sponsored by Beijing Forestry University and the China Ornithological Society. The Journal intents to publish primarily original articles, reviews and short communications produced by authors across the world, covering the full spectrum of subjects in ornithology, including research in fossil birds. A special column, Birds in China, will report research in birds endemic to China, and such manuscripts will be invited regularly. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed.
The cast of the editorial board of the Journal is extensive. Prof. Guangmei Zheng from Beijing Normal University takes the position of Editor-in-Chief. Board members are all reputable scientists from universities, institutes or associations in China, the USA, the UK and Germany.
Currently, Chinese Birds has a page-charge-free publishing policy to encourage authors to submit high-quality papers.
We are dedicated to report the latest and significant progress in ornithology and to promote the communication and exchange of ideas among Chinese and overseas ornithologist.
We hope to foster and shape our journal as a top-tier journal with strong influence to the international ornithology community.
We are committed to the principle of academic freedom and three core values: justice, objectivity and novelty.
