          Australian Field Ornithology

          Australian Field Ornithology is now  online. 


          AFO online allows for prompt and regular publishing of new articles. To keep up to date with new article releases and have access to them as soon as they are published, be sure to subscribe to the Australian Field Ornithology twitter handle - @AFOonline.

          BirdLife Australia members can  access  all new articles and previous issues for free simply by logging in to the Australian Field Ornithology website with your username and password. Everyone else can access a limited number of new articles after setting up a login. Back issues of Australian Field Ornithology two years and older and The Australian Bird Watcher going back to 1959 are available to anyone to download, anywhere in the world.

          About AFO

          Australian Field Ornithology is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal publishing original papers on a broad spectrum of topics relating to Australasian ornithology, including ecology, behaviour and history of individual species and groups. It also publishes significant natural history observations and has a particular emphasis on data or observations gained in the field.  It regularly includes authoritative reviews of other ornithological publications. Formerly a Bird Observation and Conservation Australia journal, it was first published in 1959 as The Australian Bird Watcher and took on its present title in 2003. The body of work contained in the journal has added greatly to our knowledge of Australia’s birds and continues to do so; most new Australian species records are published in AFO and it has been an important source of data for our authoritative Handbook of Australian, New Zealand and Antarctic Birds

          Contributions are welcome from everyone researching or observing birds in the Australasian region (including Australia and its Territories, as well as Wallacea, New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia), particularly those reporting data derived from observing birds in the field. Potential authors should check the advice to contributors and submission details on the AFO online website.

          To get started and begin exploring the new online format and new articles, simply go to the Australian Field Ornithology website, at www.www.bianchun.tw/afo or click HERE

          AFO Online FAQs

          Plans are underway to transition Australian Field Ornithology to an online journal from 2016.

          A limited online version of AFO will be available for you to access late in 2015 to help readers become familiar with the online version.???

          3. How can BirdLife Australia afford to include this free of charge with BirdLife Australia membership?

          By taking the journal online the cost of printing and mailing AFO is removed. At the same time by expanding its reach in academic circles via databases, the journal has the potential to increase the royalties collected, which subsidise the remaining costs.

          While we are still managing and mailing printed issues, the journal will be available by subscription only, so you should renew your subscription.? With the first online issue in 2016, subscribers will receive a refund for the unused portion of their subscription.?

          AFO will continue to include peer reviewed papers on a range of topics relating to Australian ornithology, including ecology and natural history; Wallacean and Melanesian content; and book reviews. Taking AFO online means that articles will be published and available much more quickly and content won’t necessarily have to be limited or constrained by the printed format.

          7.? Our local library/ institution subscribes to the hardcopy of AFO - how we will access the journal?

          Most libraries and institutions prefer to subscribe to online journals of this nature and already do so through databases like InformIT. Please ask your library about their online subscription access.?

          8.? What details will I need to access the papers online?
