  3. As many of you know, the fifth North American Ornithological Conference is happening now in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The Ornithology Exchange has a table near the registration area, so if you haven't yet, please stop by and say hi, or look for @Chris Merkord or @Ellen Paul during the meeting. It's a great time to learn more about OE, give us feedback, or just get to know your OE admins. I will be posting updates on the meeting as they happen in this forum. If you are at the meeting and you want the word spread about something, post it here. If you would like notifications then just Follow this forum.
  4. Hello AOU Members-- Today I am sending you the new version of a plan to initiate the Society for Ornithology as well as an SFO Factsheet. The plan is evolving with each iteration --we expect there will be more iterations. Further Developments in a Plan to Initiate the Society For Ornithology (PDF) SFO Fact Sheet (PDF) SFO FAQs.pdf This version represents the work of 16 society representatives, including the presidents, editors, and treasurers, from the AOU, AFO, and COS. The society representatives have focused the past 6 months on the managerial and publication portion of the plan. We include the 3 other sections (communication, conservation, and outreach) developed by the original SFO committee to give you an idea of what SFO could become. However, our initial focus would be in establishing the society and getting pubs off the ground. We do not have a budget attached to the plan as we recently changed the publication strategy to online only (print on demand). Thus, we are still investigating costs and benefits. We hope to have this sorted out by the NAOC. We will have a number of venues set up for learning about and discussing SFO at the NOAC. This will include an SFO booth in the exhibitor's section that will be staffed by AOU, AFO, and COS members working to develop SFO. We will have a presentation and public discussion of SFO on Wednesday evening of the SFO. We will also discuss SFO at the AOU business meeting the next evening (Thursday). I hope you can participate in each and help us sort out the future of ornithology in the Americas. Finally, I need to reiterate that we are NOT voting to disband the AOU at the NAOC. The plan for the NAOC is for the Council to learn more about SFO, listen to the discussions at the Wednesday night gathering, etc., and then meet for a second time at the meeting to discuss potential funding options for the beginning stages of SFO. Please take the time to understand what we are concerned about, how we are trying to solve the issues and send me any questions or comments. I look forward to seeing everyone next week in Vancouver. Sincerely, Sue Haig AOU President-Elect P.S. We are working on a Webinar hook-up for the Wednesday evening discussion. There are 100 slots available. Please let me know if you cannot attend the meeting but would like to participate in the webinar. (FROM THE OE ADMINISTRATORS): COMMENTS ON THIS ARTICLE MAY BE POSTED HERE: SFO Feedback forum. WE ARE KEEPING ALL THE COMMENTS IN ONE PLACE SO THEY ARE EASY TO FIND AND FOLLOW.

  6. @bsmithpatten just posted an announcement about the following workshop to be held at NAOC-V: NAOC Workshop - How a manuscript becomes a paper: writing and reviewing scientific papers

This workshop, "How a manuscript becomes a paper: writing and reviewing scientific papers," will be held on Date: 14 August 2012 Time: 8:30am - 12:00pm Location: Buchanan A103, UBC Campus Description: We will begin with a quick review of how to write a scientific paper and how to decide where to submit your manuscript. We will then explain the submission and review process and give pointers on etiquette and what is expected of you. Lastly, we will discuss how to prepare reviews when you are asked by a journal to review someone else’s work. We plan to have open discussion on these topics, so bring your questions and concerns about writing and reviewing. If you are interested, please contact: Brenda D. Smith-Patten, Condor Editorial office, University of Oklahoma, e-mail: condor@ou.edu

  9. Here is a new DRAFT Plan for SFO. So much of it has changed that we have not highlighted changes from the May 2012 version. We would love to hear any and all comments regarding the DRAFT plan. It will be revised one more time prior to the NAOC and members of all participating societies will be sent an email notifying them of where to access it. Please be sure to check the NAOC schedule for the many opportunities you will have to discuss SFO one on one, with your society, and in a large forum.
