International Workshop on Forest Science Publishing
IUFRO WP 9.01.06
Helsinki, Finland, 14 - 16 October 2015
The International Workshop on Forest Science Publishing will be the first activity of the
new Working Party 9.01.06 of IUFRO. The initiative to establish the Working Party was made
in the IUFRO World Congress in Salt Lake City, USA, in October 2014. The aim of the
working party is to provide a forum for discussions, training, exchange of ideas, and
development of editorial practices of journals dealing with forests, wood science, and
related research. The Working Party and its first meeting are expected to be of special
interest to the editors, editorial board members, and reviewers of peer-reviewed forest
science journals for discussing timely issues on scientific publishing.
Based on feedback from Working Party members, the first workshop will emphasise
peer-review and open access/open data issues yet contributions on any issue relevant to
forest science publishing are welcome. The workshop will be composed of keynote talks,
voluntary oral and poster presentations, and working groups. The working groups will
formulate the activities of the Working Party until the next IUFRO World Congress in
