The Society's quarterly scientific journal. This peer-reviewed journal has been publishing ornithological research relevant to New Zealand and the South Pacific since 1943 (originally as New Zealand Bird Notes). All OSNZ members are encouraged to submit original papers or short notes on their bird observations or studies to the Notornis Editor: Jim Briskie (jim [dot] briskie [at] canterbury [dot] ac [dot] nz (Subject: Query from Notornis Website) )
Notornis has a wide circulation within New Zealand and overseas, and is provided to all members of OSNZ. A stock of back numbers is available for those who wish to acquire them. PDFs for each volume will be made available online as close as practicable to the standard publication dates (last day in March, June, September, December)
