New website, new publishing system, new Editor-in-Chief, but the same old Ornis Fennica!


Ornis Fennica has gone through some major changes. We have launched a new website and at the same, a new publishing system based on Open Journal Systems (OJS). From now on, you can submit your manuscripts through this system:

Old issues are available in BirdLife Finland´s database:

Our new system will also provide DOIs for all articles, a feature requested by some of our authors. Ornis Fennica will remain Open access with no article processing charges, thanks to the financial contributions from our publisher BirdLife Finland. In the future, we will also join Directory of Open Access Journals. Please note that from now on we will publish all Ornis Fennica articles under the Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 license.

Suvi Ruuskanen will step down as the Editor-in-Chief, and Patrik Karell will take the lead as the new EIC. We thank Suvi for the past years and for the energy that you have used to guide us through the change into the new system! And the warmest welcome to Patrik!

We invite you all to register as readers on our new pages to receive notifications of new issues. If you are willing to review papers for Ornis Fennica, you can indicate that as well during the registration.

Please sign up to our notification list to receive information of the new articles and perhaps consider publishing with us in the future.

We wish you all a very successful year 2022!

Editorial team of Ornis Fennica
