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

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

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

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
