German Ornithologists' Society

The German Ornithologists' Society (Deutsche Ornithologen-Gesellschaft DO-G) is one of the world's oldest existing scientific societies. The DO-G was founded in 1850. Its original goal - to support and further scientific ornithology on all levels - has remained unchanged. The DO-G attempts to accomplish its aims by
* Publishing the "Journal of Ornithology" (founded in 1853) and by supporting the publication of "Die Vogelwarte"; both publish contributions from all areas of scientific ornithology;
* Helping to establish and further personal between ornithologists on an international level. This particularly mediated during the annual meetings which offer ample opportunities for discussion and include organized field trips. The annual meetings are held in an ever changing sequence of central European cities (preferably university cities) ;
* Offering scientific as well as financial support for scientific studies through a special research fund;
* Bestowing prestigeous financial awards distinguishing outstanding ornithological work. Three awards are established.
* Giving expert assistance and scientific advice for bird protection progams.

The Journal of Ornithology celebrates 150 years 

From its inception in 1853, the aim of the journal has been to publish high-quality articles on the broad spectrum of subjects that fall within the field of avian science—not just in Germany, but worldwide. A successful 156 years and 150 volumes later, the aims and scope of the journal remain unchanged. The journal still publishes original papers, reviews, short notes and commentaries dealing with all aspects of ornithology and from all over the world. The Journal of Ornithology is currently ranked among the top three ornithological journals worldwide.
