Book release party & pizza night!

Last Thursday, almost 40 CAnMovians showed up to celebrate the release of the book "Movement across scales" - a joint effort by several CAnMove researchers and one of the programme milestones. Thanks to everybody who contributed, and especially to Lasse who has done a terrific job editing the book!
There was plenty of pizza to go around, and it was nice that so many stayed for drinks and chatting!

Apart from celebrating, people were also asked to give some input to the future challanges of the programme. This autumn one of the important tasks for the board will be to set the direction for CAnMoves' next coming years - taking the feedback from the half-time evaluation as well as your input into account. All ideas and comments from this evening were collected and will be handed over to the board for further discussions!

New CAnMove Board

I wish to thank the CAnMove members who now step back form serving CAnMove in the board, Staffan Bensch, Lars-Anders Hansson and Dennis Hasselquist. Thanks for your most valuable and appreciated contributions to the CAnMove program and for supportive years with CAnMove activities.

As new members in I wish to welcome Christer Brönmark and Bengt Hansson, both PIs in CAnMove and with research interests in partial migration in fish and population dynamics and in landscape genetics, inbreeding and dispersal among other topics.

Thanks and Very welcome!

I look forward to work with the new CAnMove Board as we step in to a most important period in CAnMove where we will dedicate time to look into the future and to create long-lasting platforms and actions of value for many members.

Warm wishes,

Animal Migration - a journal for researchers interested in animal movement

Greetings colleagues,

Please permit me to introduce myself - I am the new editor of a journal which should be of interest to everyone reading this. Animal Migration, published by De Groyter, is a relatively new open-access journal that, as the name suggests, is devoted to publishing studies on the biology of migratory animals and their movements. The journal has only been underway for a little more than a year and a half, but already it has published works ranging from geolocator accuracy in bird migration studies, to butterfly wing morphology, and non-volant modes of migration in insects. The journal is open to all subjects within this discipline, including migratory behavior, flight mechanics, navigation, as well as methodological techniques for the study of animal migration. The journal accepts research articles as well as review papers. Collectively, this journal fills an important niche by providing a forum for researchers like us who study animal movement and migration.

I would like to invite you to submit your next paper to our journal.
Authors of published papers receive the following benefits:

- Open Access to your article for all interested readers,
- No publication charge for articles published in 2014,
- Fast and constructive peer review provided by recognized experts in the field,
- Convenient, web-based paper submission and tracking system – Editorial Manager (http://www.editorialmanager.com/ami/) ,
- High-quality electronic publication technology,
- Immediate online publication of articles,
- Free language-correction services for non-English-speaking authors of accepted papers
- And finally, all papers are extensively promoted with an individually-tailored press release, that is sent to all major news wires

The journal also boasts an impressive collection of distinguished
scientists who serve on the editorial advisory board, listed below:

Susanne Åkesson, Lund University, Sweden
Jason Chapman, Rothamsted Research, West Common, Harpenden, UK
John M. Fryxell, University of Guelph, Canada
Christopher G. Guglielmo, University of Western Ontario, Canada
Graeme Hays, Swansea University, UK
Anders Hedenström, Lund University, Sweden
Keith A. Hobson, Science and Technology Branch, Environment Canada, Canada
Felix Liechti, Swiss Ornithological Institute, Sempach , Switzerland
Kenneth J. Lohmann, Center for Galapagos Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA
Peter Marra, Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, National Zoological
Park, Washington, USA
Frank R. Moore, University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg, USA
Rachel Muheim, Lund University, Sweden
Martin Wikelski, Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, Seewiesen, Germany

For more information on the journal, including submitting manuscripts, see the journal website at http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/ami

I hope to see your paper soon.
