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.
