Since its inception in 1970 by the Scandinavian Ornitholists´ Union, the journal Ornis Scandinavica gradually became a truly international publication attracting subscribers and contributors from all over the world. To endorse this global perspective, in 1994 the journal´s name was was changed to "Journal of Avian Biology". Currently, there are 6 issues/year. The print run is about 600 pages per annum.
Journal of Avian Biology publishes empirical and theoretical research in areas of ornithology, with an emphasis on behavioural ecology and evolution. Preferably, papers should test hypothesis, or explore new ground. Purely descriptive studies are accepted only when they contain important new information that give rise to new questions and/or open up new ground.
As of 2015 the journal will be published online only.
