Benefits of Sponsoring Special Sections or Special Issues of SAF’s Journals
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.
