    In 2014, The Auk became The Auk: Ornithological Advances, an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research and scholarship advancing the fundamental scientific knowledge of bird species and broad biological concepts (e.g., ecology, evolution, behavior, physiology, genetics) through studies of bird species. Articles often introduce or employ innovative empirical and theoretical approaches and analyses.


    The Auk: Ornithological Advances is an online journal, with current articles published weekly. Posted articles have a DOI and final page numbers for citation. Issues are printed on a quarterly basis.


    For more than 100 years, The Auk has been the official publication of the American Ornithologists’ Union and has published original reports on the biology of birds. In 2009, The Auk was honored as one of the 100 most influential journals of biology and medicine over the past 100 years. Today, it remains at the top of peer-reviewed journals focusing on birds, with its 2012 impact factor ranked above all others in the field of ornithology.


    Past issues of The Auk are also available on SORA, the open access Searchable Ornithological Research Archive hosted by the University of New Mexico, and for institutional subscribers through BioOne or JSTOR.


    Prior to 2014 The Auk was subtitled An International Journal of Ornithology.
