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
