Birds is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal of ornithology. Birds is published quarterly online by MDPI.
  • Open Access—Content may be downloaded, shared, and reused freely. Authors receive recognition for their contribution when the paper is reused.
  • Rapid Publication: manuscripts are peer-reviewed and a first decision provided to authors approximately 20.1 days after submission; acceptance to publication is undertaken in 6.1 days (median values for papers published in this journal in the first half of 2021).
  • Recognition of Reviewers: Reviewers who provide timely, thorough peer-review reports receive vouchers entitling them to a discount on the APC of their next publication in any MDPI journal. While single-blind peer review is standard, reviewers have the option available for signed peer review, and reviewer names are published annually in the journal.
  • Benefits of Publishing: Our ambition is to achieve an impact factor in the range of 1.5-2.5.
    Birds aims to be one of the leading ornithology journal, we therefore aim, by 2025, to be in the top 10 ornithology journals listed in the Journal Citation Report (JCR).
  • Birds is a companion journal of Animals.
