Submit a Manuscript to Avian Diseases

Guidelines for Authors

The editors will consider manuscripts in the field of avian diseases. Manuscripts should be submitted on-line at the website: Avian Diseases Editorial Manager. Directions for submitting manuscripts are available below. For assistance, contact the Editorial Office Support Manager, Diana Kerr. Tel: (904)425-5735; Email: [email protected] 

Avian Diseases will consider only original manuscripts not published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Abstracts printed as a part of the program of a meeting will not be considered as a prior publication. However, if the text, tables, and figures appear to be the same as that published elsewhere, Avian Diseases will not consider the manuscript.

All manuscripts are reviewed by one or more members of the Editorial Board or other persons selected by the editor. Effective January 1, 2023, there will be no page charges for any article submitted after that date. Effective January 1, 2023, Avian Diseases will offer a choice for authors Open Access (OA). There will be a charge of each submitted article submitted for OA of $1,500 for members and $2,000 for non-members."

Avian Diseases is copyrighted by the American Association of Avian Pathologists and authors must sign a copyright transfer form before articles are published. U.S. Government employees are exempt from this requirement if the work is considered part of their official duties.

All articles accepted for publication are posted on-line shortly after acceptance, prior to editorial revisions made by a copy-editor. “Prior to print” articles may be accessed here.
