From time to time, Forest Science and the Journal of Forestry publish special issues or special sections following specific themes that are timely and of interest to the forestry community. View published and forthcoming special issues and sections below.
Submit a Proposal for a Special Issue or Section
Special issues or special sections in the SAF journals are published when the collection of articles on a particular theme make a very substantial contribution to the publications’ missions of advancing the profession of forestry. This goal is met by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry and of publishing the best peer-reviewed research into forest-related economic, social, and ecological issues that define or advance the frontiers of science and help inform ongoing policy deliberations.
Typical benefits of publishing a special issue or section may include:
