Transparency regarding methods, data, and results is essential to scientific progress. However, in ecological, evolutionary, and ornithological research, transparency is often insufficient, and the distribution of published results may often be biased. To address this issue, we advocate adoption of editorial policies that explicitly promote transparency. We hope that The Auk, as a leading ornithological journal, will lead the way in promoting transparency in the study of birds.
