The journal has advised that the maximum number of articles
published will be 10-20, and we anticipate that more papers will be
submitted for consideration than can be published. The journal has
pointed out that a primary requirement for selection for the Special
Issue must be scientific quality, and that the papers recommended
for publication by the Guest Editors should represent a coherent set
of original papers which are clearly linked by an overall theme.
To help ensure these outcomes, the journal requires that the papers
are subjected to the same peer-reviewing process as normally
practised by the journal, i.e. review of each paper by at least two
international specialists in the field covered. After refereeing,
the Guest Editors then recommend to the Editors-in-Chief of FORECO
the 10-20 papers to be published, and FORECO will make the final
decision regarding acceptance for publication.
Please note that, if your submitted paper is accepted for the review
process, the intention is to complete this procedure no later than
30th November 2008. The Guest Editors will work with authors and
external reviewers to ensure that this date is met.
Authors who are presenting papers of more local interest are advised
that Tasforests will accept submissions of manuscripts based on
these contributions. The closing date for this journal is also 31st
March 2008. Please note that if your submitted paper is accepted for
the review process, the intention is to complete this procedure no
later than 30th November 2008.
The Tasforests editorial board will work with authors and external
reviewers to ensure that this date is met. If you are interested in
submitting your conference paper to Tasforests, please discuss this
with Dr Steve Read, from the Tasforests editorial board, at or after
the conference. Contact: Steve Read,
