Forest Systems is an international and open access peer-reviewed journal with free fees for authors. Forest Systems aims to integrate multidisciplinary and multi-scale research with forest management in complex systems subject to diverse social and ecological background. Papers that bring together two or more disciplines, forest products and services, interactions between ecological factors and species are given preference in Forest Systems. Manuscripts in relation to climate change effects on forest dynamics, resilience and vulnerability are welcome. Papers that highlight implications of forests products and services on bioeconomy are into the scope of this journal. Studies of all kind of forest systems can be submitted, in particular those that provide a variety of wood and non-wood products and ecosystem services in Regions of Mediterranean climate. Forest Systems covers research findings dealing with all aspects of forest ecosystems and forestry such as (in alphabetic order): -Agroforestry Biodiversity and conservation (including plants and animals)- Biometry, silviculture and forest management- Dendroecology and paleoecology- Ecology and forest dynamics- Ecophysiology- Genetics (including breeding) and biotechnology- Pathology, biotic interactions and pests- Policy and economics- Remote sensing and landscape- Science and technology of forest products: wood, cellulose and non-wood products (including new applications or capabilities of lignocellulosic material and biorefineries)- Soils, hydrology and restoration- Wildfires, fire ecology and management.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Forest Systems

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
