We would like to invite participants of this Ornithological Congress of the Americas to submit manuscripts to be considered for publication on a special volume of the Brazilian Journal of Ornithology. We welcome review and case study manuscripts derived from the research exposed at the meeting. Particularly, we would like to invite organizers of each symposium, as well as symposium´s participants, to submit a review manuscript on the topic of the symposium, which could have particular emphasis on the individual talks involved in the symposium. Also, we would like to publish one study case per symposium. In addition to the manuscripts derived from symposia, we encourage other authors presenting their studies to submit manuscripts as a general submission.
