Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Articles will be requested from a call for contributions to this Special Issue "A Decade of Forests Open Access Publishing", which was inspired as part of the decennial celebrations for the journal Forests. The purpose of the event was to reflect on the past decade's progress in research on forests and forestry, and to identify emerging issues to address over the coming decade. The Special Issue set out to draw on the insights that emerged at this decennial event, and is in line with the aim and scope of Forests: From forest ecology and management to forest ecophysiology, from urban forestry to human dimensions and everything in between. Such a context invites a broad array of potential contributions from Editorial Board Members of Forests and prestigious scholars and practitioners.

Forests is a Swiss open access journal in the field of forestry and forest ecology founded in 2010. Currently, the journal celebrates its 10th anniversary. Therefore, the purpose of this research for the special issue A Decade of Forests Open Access Publishing is to present a whole bibliometric overview of the journal and highlight the state of the art of forestry as an interdisciplinary knowledge area. A bibliometric analysis of 2094 articles, reviews, editorials and corrections was conducted using two different scientific information platforms which publish indexes in online databases: Web of Science (WoS) and Scopus. The most influential countries and their relationship with funding institutions, the most leading and outstanding authors and the most significant articles published in Forests have been analyzed. A complete keyword concurrence network with a graphical visualization and a cluster analysis are adopted for identifying the main trends and opening issues to address in the coming decade, such as genetic diversity, forest productivity, resistance or resilience. This article has identified climate change, remote sensing, biomass and forest management as the main trends in forestry research during the last ten years. Full article
