Changing Scientific Publication Environment Challenges Forest Science Journals
What are the main challenges for forest science journals? This was the key question discussed by journal editors and scientists at the International Workshop on Forest Science Publishing.
The workshop was the first activity of the new IUFRO Working Party on Forest Science Publishing, and took place on 15-16 October 2015 in Helsinki, Finland. The event was hosted by the Finnish Society of Forest Science and gathered editors of forest science journals and scientists interested in publishing from Europe, North America, and Australia.
Editors of scientific journals - especially those published by learned societies and other small publishers - rarely have the opportunity to discuss about their editorial challenges, so the workshop participants welcomed the opportunity opened by the new IUFRO Working Party.
