In 2018, the American Ornithology Society announced a partnership with Oxford University Press to publish The Auk: Ornithological Advances and The Condor: Ornithological Applications .[1]

In January 2021, the journal was renamed to Ornithology, with the stated goal of improving descriptiveness, thematic focus, and ease of citation of the journal title. The society's sister publication The Condor was renamed to Ornithological Applications at the same time.[2]
