Journal Sections

Research articles make an original and significant contribution to the field of study within the scope of the journal. These articles should be of interest to a broad audience, scientifically sound, well written and concise.

Short communications should cover a concise study of wide interest, novelty and/or high quality. Papers must report relevant information, not preliminary findings. Articles with local-regional interest may only be accepted here or in the Resource Communications section.

Resource communications include all types of papers on resources or tools of interest for the study and management of forest systems (e.g., methodologies, software and growth models, open access databases). They must report a completed work, not preliminary findings.

Reviews aim to provide an overview for an issue of great interest or topicality. They will be invited by the Editorial Board. However, potential authors can suggest topics to the Editor-in-Chief. Authors must have published some works earlier on the subject.
