NEW: The International Journal of Wood Culture

The International Journal of Wood Culture (IJWC) publishes papers on all aspects of wood and other plant materials such as bamboo, rattan, and bark and their role in art, culture and society in the past, present and future. IJWC was initiated as Wood Culture Journal in 2011 by the International Wood Culture Society (IWCS), a non-profit organization based in California, USA, and committed to the research, education and promotion of wood culture. IWCS and World Wood Day Foundation are the current sponsors of IJWC.

IJWC is a full Open Access journal and uses Editorial Manager for online submission. The Editor-in-Chief is Harvey Green, Northeastern University (emeritus professor), Boston, MA, USA. IUFRO officeholders Michael Grabner and Charlotte Chia-Hua are members of the editorial board.
