The Brazilian Journal of Ornithology publishes articles, notes, comments, reviews and editorials on ornithology in general, with emphasis on Neotropical birds.
The Revista Brasileira de Ornitologia will accept original contributions related to any aspect of the biology of birds, with emphasis on the documentation, analysis, and interpretation of field and laboratory studies, presentation of new methodologies, theories or reviews of ideas or previously known information. The Revista Brasileira de Ornitologia is interested in publishing ornithological studies on behavior, behavioral ecology, biogeography, breeding biology, community ecology, conservation biology, distribution, evolution and genetics, landscape ecology, methods and statistics, migration, nomenclature, paleontology, parasites and disease, phylogeography, physiology, population biology, systematics, and taxonomy. Noteworthy range extensions and novel geopolitical (country/state/province) records are also welcome, but not mere lists of the avifauna of a specific locality. Monographs may be considered for publication upon consultation with the editor.
