We have reached an agreement with the international scientific journals Annals of Forest Science1 and Forest Systems2 to publish a selection of the best papers presented in the Conference.
Annals of Forest Science has the pleasure to invite all researchers participating to the MedPINE5 conference in Solsona, Spain during September 2014 to submit a manuscript for publication based on the results presented at this conference http://medpine5.ctfc.es. The accepted papers will be published under the form of a thematic issue of AFS.
This thematic issue will be made visible on the web page of the journal and we will produce a specific printed issue if there are enough (>15) papers.
Submitted manuscripts should belong to one of the following categories: i) research papers providing original research results, ii) letter to the editor or opinion paper, iii) review papers and iv) data base papers.
All manuscripts will be handled as regular AFS manuscripts. They should be submitted via the journalâ€™s website (http://www.editorialmanager.com/afsc. They will be handled by the chief editor and the editors according to the usual procedure for assessment and selection (double blind peer review, same quality criteria than for regular issues).
