Publishing Opportunities

The Forests Monitor (FM), a new stablished journal devoted to the applied science of multifunctional forest ecosystems is accepting articles presented in SSAFR2024. We are also studying the possibility to publish a special issue related to the symposium.

The Forests Monitor (FM) is an international peer-reviewed open-access journal devoted to the applied science of multifunctional forest ecosystems, with a primary objective of enhancing forest management and conservation in support of good governance worldwide. With a thematic focus on forest management, planning, and decision-support systems in forestry, FM aligns well with the scope of SSAFR events.

Our double-blind peer-review process ensures rigorous standards, while our independence from large publishers fosters academic integrity. We value our reviewers’ contributions, compensating them fairly for their time and expertise. Experience quick, high-quality reviews—typically within two weeks—thanks to our reviewer fees. Our transparent, per-page expenses and 25% discount for first-time submissions make publishing affordable and accessible. Moreover, if FM receives many high-quality papers, there’s an option to convert a regular issue to a dedicated issue tailored specifically to SSAFR. 

Run by forestry researchers, FM aspires to become a leading platform for advancing forest science and collaboration within the forestry community. Read more and submit your papers to Forests Monitor at, or contact Dr. Rafal Chudy at
