Emerging from discussions within IUFRO’s Small-scale Forestry group, Small-scale Forestry was originally published as Small-scale Forest Economics, Management and Policy in 2002, with a view to providing an international forum for publishing high quality, peer-reviewed papers on pure and applied research into small-scale forestry. Although of particular interest to the global research community, the journal is also relevant to both policy makers and forest managers. The scope of the journal is necessarily quite broad, given the range of issues relevant to small-scale forestry. These include the social, economic and technical dimensions of farm, family, non-industrial, agro- and community forestry. Papers are accepted on the basis that they relate specifically to forestry at this scale, and that they are based on high quality research using accepted quantitative and/or qualitative methodology. Empirical, theoretical, modeling, and methodological papers are all welcome. The following research areas are particularly relevant to the journal: -the role of small-scale forestry in rural development- financial modeling and decision support systems- enhancing return from non-wood products- social impacts of small-scale forestry- marketing, forest co-operatives and growers organizations- role and effectiveness of government support and subsidies- innovative research techniques- education and extension- certification- silvicultural, wood harvesting and processing techniques and technologies- impediments to small-scale forestry development- monitoring socio-economics- forest management behaviour and timber supply

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.

Small-scale Forestry


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.
