International Journal of Forest Engineering
Share |

The International Journal of Forest Engineering (IJFE) is dedicated to the dissemination of scholarly writings in all aspects of forest operations, both empirical and theoretical. Most published articles are original research, but review articles are also welcome. An important role of the IJFE is to report on existing practices and innovations in forest engineering by scientists and professionals from around the world to promote environmentally sound forestry practices and contribute to sustainable forest management.

IJFE’s scope includes forest engineering operations topics related to the management, harvesting, processing and transport of timber and/or biomass products to industry or other users. Our scope applies to all kinds of forest management and restoration (e.g. short and long rotation; uneven-aged and even-aged; agroforestry) associated with sustainable management, production and transport of timber and biomass products. Our scope normally excludes industrial manufacturing processes (e.g. sawmilling, pulp and paper manufacturing, conversion of biomass into biofuels), materials strength testing, etc. which occur following transport to industry.

Examples of topics typically covered by the IJFE are:

  • Technology and work methods for stand establishment, tending, and protection
    • Wood procurement and wood supply system analysis
  • Forest access and operations planning, management, and control
    • Application of information and other technologies to forest engineering operations
  • Timber and biomass harvesting, processing, and transportation
  • Impacts of forest operations and mitigation practices
  • Machine design, management, and evaluation
  • Human factors engineering
  • Education, training, and management of forest engineering personnel

FPS is excited to announce that we have launched a new IJFE website with the help of our publishing partner, Taylor & Francis. This site will have the current issue, pre-press articles (before they are published in an issue), historical archives and much more. Visit today.

Due to the booming interest in using forest biomass for energy purposes, the IJFE especially welcomes papers addressing such issues.
