Subject: Association of Avian Veterinarians Request for 'Notes from the Field' Manuscript Submissions ($250 Honorarium)
The Association of Avian Veterinarians is welcoming submissions for Notes from the Field. Notes from the Field is a subsection of the Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery (JAMS) dedicated to stories from veterinarians, researchers, and support staff who are engaged in avian conservation, field research, or other field activities. JAMS is published on a quarterly basis. The goal of this section is to inspire others to get involved with avian conservation efforts. We are offering an honorarium of $250 for each accepted manuscript (one per issue) for publishing in the journal. Please make submissions to Scott Ford, DVM, ABVP-Avian by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Submissions should be made by individuals of any education level who are directly involved in avian conservation or field research efforts. Those that highlight the use or advancement of medical sciences will be preferred.
- Submissions must not condone activities that violate the policies (e.g., AAV or AVMA statements) or laws (national or international) that pertain to the ethical treatment and international movement of animals.
- Submissions should conform to the “Instructions to Authors” guidelines that appear in each issue of the Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery.
- Preference will be given to submissions that encourage participation or illustrate methods by which the “average person” can get involved in conservation efforts.
