Birds is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal on ornithology published quarterly online by MDPI.
  • Open Access— free for readers, with article processing charges (APC) paid by authors or their institutions.
  • High Visibility: indexed within ScopusAGRIS, and other databases.
  • Rapid Publication: manuscripts are peer-reviewed and a first decision is provided to authors approximately 29.9 days after submission; acceptance to publication is undertaken in 3.5 days (median values for papers published in this journal in the first half of 2023).
  • Recognition of Reviewers: Reviewers who provide timely, thorough peer-review reports receive vouchers entitling them to a discount on the APC of their next publication in any MDPI journal. While single-blind peer review is standard, reviewers have the option available for signed peer review, and reviewer names are published annually in the journal.
  • Birds is a companion journal of Animals.
