The SCO-SOC is an organization of Canada's ornithological community.
We administer awards, produce two publications, and provide interconnection with other professional ornithological societies.
We produce a tri-annual newsletter: Picoides.
Our professional journal is Avian Conservation and Ecology. The journal is peer-reviewed, electronic, and entirely open-access. It is published jointly with Bird Studies Canada. Avian Conservation and Ecology welcomes any submission related to the conservation and ecology of birds in Canada and worldwide.
