The international journal for multidisciplinary research into small-scale forestry
  • An international forum for pure and applied research on small-scale forestry
  • Presents empirical, theoretical, modeling, and methodological papers
  • Thoroughly examines the dimensions of farm, family, non-industrial and community forestry

Emerging from discussions within the Small-scale Forestry group of The International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), Small-scale Forestry was founded in 2002 as Small-scale Forest Economics, Management and Policy. Its aim is to provide an international forum for publishing high quality, peer-reviewed papers on pure and applied research into small-scale forestry.

The journal presents empirical, theoretical, modeling, and methodological papers. The range of topics extends from the role of small-scale forestry in rural development, to financial modeling and decision support systems, to wood harvesting and processing and beyond. The result is a thorough examination of the social, economic and technical dimensions of farm, family, non-industrial and community forestry.

Of particular interest to the global research community, Small-scale Forestry is also useful to both policy makers and forest managers.

    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
