Author Guidelines

The AVICULTURAL MAGAZINE welcomes articles and news items from both members and non-members (no payment is made).

These can be about any aspect of aviculture, conservation or natural history concerning non-domesticated bird species that is likely to be of interest to aviculturists.

Articles submitted for publication should preferably not have been published elsewhere, and should ideally be written in English, though translation is possible.

Scientific as well as vernacular bird names should be given, and references cited in the text should be listed at the end of the article.

Material can be sent as an e-mail attachment to and can be accepted in most common file formats. Files on disk and type- or handwritten manuscripts are also accepted.

Line drawings, black and white or colour photographs can be used to illustrate articles and should be clearly captioned. Tables and graphs will be used whenever possible, but authors must be aware of the constraints of reproduction particularly with regard to the width of the page of the magazine, which is 105mm. Graphs should ideally be accompanied by the relevant source data.

Articles, news items and all editorial correspondence should be addressed to:
