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.

The IJFE’s scope includes operations related to production and supply of forest biomass to industry or other users, but excludes typically the industrial manufacturing processes (e.g. sawmilling). The scope applies on all kinds of forest management (e.g. short and long rotation; uneven-aged and even-aged) and all uses of the forest biomass (e.g. lumber, pulp and paper, energy and other uses).

Examples of topics typically covered by the IJFE are: tree harvesting, processing and transportation; stand establishment, protection and tending; operations planning and control; machine design, management and evaluation; forest access planning and construction; human factors engineering; and, education and training. If there are uncertainties about whether a manuscript might fall within the IJFE’s scope, please contact the Editor. For manuscripts related to the industrial manufacturing processes, we recommend authors of to consider publication with the Forest Products Journal.

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.
