Focus and Scope

Kukila accepts manuscripts on all aspects of Indonesian ornithology for publication, provided that they are offered solely to Kukila. Papers covering immediately adjacent territories (e.g. Sabah, Sarawak, Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea) and seas will also be considered if they relate to the Indonesian avifauna.

Paper Categories.

  • Full Articles: 2,000-7,000 words in length, and generally present detailed new information on the biology (e.g. ecology or behaviour) or status of particular bird species, or on the avifauna of a poorly-known region of Indonesia, with reference to all relevant literature. A summary is required.
  • Short Communications: Less than 2,000 words in length, and may include less detailed observations of single species, or records that constitute the first of a species for a province or large island, providing authors furnish an adequate description of the bird’s appearance, habitat, location (if possible, geographical coordinates) and calls (if heard), as well as a thorough review of the literature. A short summary is required.
  • Around the Archipelago presents recent Indonesian records of bird species that are poorly known or rarely observed, as well as breeding records and records of recapture or recovery of birds banded or re-trapped in Indonesia. Author’s initials appear in brackets after the record, and their full names are given at the end of the report.  Observations from the Greater Sundas should be sent to Bas van Balen (bvanbalen001@hotmail.com), from Lesser Sundas to Colin Trainor (Halmahera@hotmail.com), and from Papua or Moluccas to Richard Noske (rnoske@tpg.com.au).

Peer Review Process

Manuscripts sent to Kukila are subject to peer review. External peer-review is typically done by regional ornithological experts and is an important process to provide an unbiased opinion on the significance of the manuscript and whether it is suitable for publication. Usually two referees are selected. Referees use their personal time to examine the manuscript, and provide a report to editors usually within 10-30 days of receipt of the manuscript. They may or may not annotate a copy of the manuscript. Delays may occur in the review process if referees are in the field or otherwise do not have time to accept a review. The editors then assess comments by referees, and determine actions needed by the author to enable the manuscript to progress towards being accepted for publication. Revised manuscripts should be returned within 30 days of receipt of the referees’ report, and must be accompanied by a letter – preferably in point form - explaining how the author(s) have addressed each of the issues raised by the referees. Poorly prepared manuscripts may be rejected, or require substantial effort to reach a suitable standard.  The editors reserve the right to carry out non-technical, editorial alterations, without reference to the authors. At their discretion editors may provide additional assistance to enable these articles to meet a suitable standard. Poorly researched manuscripts, or those that are not revised according to the editor’s instructions can be a burden to editors due to their limited time. In such cases editors may suggest co-authorship.

 

Publication Frequency

As of 1 January 2017, Kukila will publish articles as soon as the reviewing and editing process has been finalised.
