50 years anniversary

AFS is proud to present a special issue celebrating its 50th anniversary. It contains a series of review papers on important topicds that have changed forest and wood sciences in the last decades

Read the anniversary issue

In order to ensure the quickest publication and citation possible for its authors, AFS will change for a continuous article publishing as of January 2017: once accepted and ready for publication, papers will be directly published in an issue. The issue will be in construction for 3 months until the next issue starts being build. Authors will no longer need to wait for months until their articles moved from the e-only section to an issue and obtains its final page numbering. This will simplify paper processing and indexing.

Green Open Access

The final publisher version of articles published in Annals of Forest Science will be made freely available under a .pdf format in an open archive after a period of embargo of 12 months. The whole archive of Annals of Forest Science is now available in the repository for scientific publication HAL.
