For more than a century, the Wilson Ornithological Society has published a scholarly journal with form and content readily accessible to both professional and amateur ornithologists. The Wilson Journal of Ornithology is a quarterly publication consisting of major articles based on original studies of birds and short communications that describe observations of particular interest. Each issue also includes reviews of new books on birds and related subjects, as well as ornithological news. Through an endowment from the late George Miksch Sutton, each issue of the Journal includes a full color frontispiece. Each current volume consists of approximately 500 pages. The principal focus of the Journal is the study of living birds, their behavior, ecology, adaptive physiology and conservation.
Although most articles originate from work conducted in the western hemisphere (a large portion of the research on Neotropical birds is published here), the geographic coverage of the journal is global. The Journal is internationally recognized as an important, major journal of ornithology.
The Wilson Journal of Ornithology was formerly named the
Wilson Bulletin
