Recommended Posts

From AOS President Kathy Martin:

It is my great pleasure to announce the appointment of Dr. Scott Sillett, Research Wildlife Biologist at Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, as the 19th Editor-in-Chief of our journal, The Auk: Ornithological Advances. Scott is an internationally recognized ornithologist widely known and respected for his many productive collaborations, interdisciplinary work, and pioneering research on the study of avian life cycles. Beginning early in his career, Scott served the Society and engaged in many of its important programs to advance our mission and inspire ornithologists. Scott earned his Ph.D. from Dartmouth College in 2000 and was a postdoctoral fellow at the U.S.G.S Patuxent Wildlife Research Center before joining the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center in 2002.

Dr. Sillett will take over the reins of the journal in August following a short period of overlap with retiring editor Mark Hauber. Scott intends to build on the momentum generated by Dr. Hauber’s outstanding leadership over the past five years, and will introduce new features to our publications program, including data archiving. He brings vision, energy, and a global perspective to leading the journal into the future. You can read more about Scott’s appointment here.

Our two peer-reviewed journals, The Auk and The Condor, consistently rank among the highest impact factors among all the 24 ornithological journals worldwide. The journals publish conceptual discovery (The Auk) and applied (The Condor) ornithology, thus covering the spectrum of modern avian research advancing the fundamental scientific knowledge of broad biological and applied concepts through the study of birds. The editorial team delivers quality and excellence with each issue, their special collections, and related publications content.
