Why publish with us

  • We are an official publication of the French National Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE), a leading institute in the field of forest and wood sciences, among others.
  • We have a unique focus on the current changes in forest ecosystems induced by climate and global changes and on how forests may contribute to the development of a circular, sustainable and inclusive forest and wood based bioeconomy.
  • Through Springer Compact agreements, authors from participating institutions can publish Open Choice at no cost to the authors.
  • Annals of Forest Science welcomes submission of manuscript that were initially deposited in an open preprint repository. In case such preprints were recommended by a community of peers like for instance “Peer Community in Forest and Wood Sciences” or any other recognized peer review system (PCI or other), we are willing to take the published recommendation and reviewer comment into account in our own review process.
