Journal of Indian Bird Records and Conservation
Harini Nature Conservation Foundation
Index of Issues of the Indian Bird Records and Conservation
The Journal of Indian Bird Records and Conservation is a gratis and pioneering internet-based ornithological publication of the Harini Nature Conservation Foundation. The Journal is the first internet-based ornithological and natural history /nature conservation journal about India, or for that matter, about South Asia.
The Journal welcomes original articles, scientific papers, field checklists, sighting records, habitat notes and conservation recommendations about bird species known from the Indian Subcontinent (= India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangla Desh, Sri Lanka and Maldives).
This homepage of the Journal connects to several pages with information about the birds of India and their conservation. Links are also provided to pages with names and addresses of the editorial board, possibilities for submission of papers, notes and comments, book reviews and information about other recently published papers.
It is planned to develop the Journal of Indian Bird Record and Conservation as an internationally acclaimed, refereed journal along with birding notes and observations from birders about India, India's birds and Indian Birds anywhere in the world. Already the Journal of Indian Bird Records and Conservation is listed in most web-based indexes to birdwatching and ornithological journals in the world.
At this website, the Journal would attempt to also function as a net-based archive of information about the birds of the Indian Subcontinent. These pages would also enable links to mirror-pages of previously published ornithological information about the Indian Subcontinent. The design, objectives and the web-based output of the Journal of Indian Bird Records and Conservation is a copyright of the Harini Nature Conservation Foundation. The contents are copyright free for use by readers for non-profit purposes only.
Manuscripts informing about current or experimental techniques, conservation models, habitat protection strategies, government policy, non-government organisations involved in studying and /or protecting Indian birds would be most appropriate. The Journal also invites articles and sighting records of Indian bird species in other regions of their known distribution.
and important field notes about Indian bird species from world wide locations
would also be welcome. Manuscripts explaining techniques on using the internet
to develop databases, maps and mapping software, search engines enabling
key word-searches for Indian birds and their conservation, and specific
existing sites or discussion list-servers would be most appropriate.
The Journal of Indian Bird Records and Conservation has been at the website http://www.angelfire.com/fl/indianbirds since July 1998. The format, presentation and visual output at this website has been twice revised and reorganised to the current pages. Comments, suggestions and critical perspectives are welcome.
Comments and suggestions may be forwarded to the Editors of the Journal.
