GBBO publishes an annual journal called Great Basin Birds. First published in 1998, Great Basin Birds publishes articles on all aspects of the status, distribution, and conservation of bird populations and communities in the Great Basin. We welcome original research and review articles, discussions of articles in past issues, and other short contributions.
Janet Bair, Will Richardson, and Elisabeth Ammon currently serve as editors of Great Basin Birds. A link on this page directs contributors to guidelines for manuscript preparation and submission. We encourage contributors to review these guidelines carefully before the writing process begins. If you have any questions, please contact us at:
