An option to publish a full article in Reforesta
If you deliver an oral or poster presentation, you are invited to submit a longer version of your contribution to Reforesta – an open access, peer-reviewed online journal published by the Scientific and Professional Society Reforesta, which publishes original papers on the fundamental and applied aspects of tree improvement, plant production and quality, and afforestation/reforestation.
The full article should reflect the title and content of the conference contribution submitted as an abstract and should be longer and more detailed. The deadline for submission is October 15, 2017. Upon review, selected articles will constitute a special issue of Reforesta, with a tentative title “Supplementary Proceedings of the IUFRO Seed Orchard Conference 2017”.
The reason for the supplementary proceedings is to encourage publication of seed orchard studies, to keep articles related to seed orchards together and to offer an additional channel for sharing information with a wider auditorium interested in reforestation where seed orchards play a key role. We recommend submitting your article to Reforesta near the time you submit an abstract to the conference proceedings, but not later than October 15, 2017.
More information about the journal and instructions for authors can be found at http://journal.reforestationchallenges.org/index.php/REFOR
. The conditions and review process will be the same as for other submissions to the journal.
