Forestry: An International Journal of Forest Research

Forestry Journal

Forestry is the Institute’s international journal of forest research, which is published by Oxford University Press. It was first published in 1927 and has gained an international reputation as one of the most important academic forestry resources.

The journal publishes refereed papers on all aspects of research, practice and policy that promote the sustainable development of forests, woodlands and trees. The editors select papers for their originality and their practical application. Preference is usually given to work undertaken in the temperate or boreal zones, although papers of exceptional merit from tropical zones will also be considered.

Five issues are published annually and each year one edition is a Special Issue focusing on a specific subject. For further information visit the Oxford University Press website.

Forestry will be an online-only publication from the start of 2021
