About the journal

 

Basic Information

The title of the journal is Ciência Florestal and its chief editor is Elio José Santini and its objectives are to publish scientific papers, technical notes and review articles related to the field of forest sciences.

The large area of the interest according to CNPQ ratings is Forest resources and Forest Engineering.

The journal was established in 1991, initially with annual printing. Over the years, due to the increase in paper submissions, in 1999, it became biannual and in 2005, quarterly. At first, its publication was essentially printed and, but with the advent of online publications in 1993, we launched a website to publish the articles. Because of this and also with the indexing in multiple databases, which set up their classification among the best in the country in the area of forest science, it became difficult to manage it. To solve this problem, on October 16th, 2009, we entered the Platform SEER which increased the visibility of the journal and made it possible for it to enter the ISI database, one of the world's largest databases, which is in itself positive due to its high impact. More recently, it was achieved, the temporary entrance in SciELO, with prospects of becoming an effective member. Also due to the entry in SEER, it was possible attribute the DOI code in the most recently published volumes, with the intention of gradually attributing it to the older volumes.

Currently Ciência Florestal is published quarterly, with its publication until the last day of the last month of each quarter of the year (March, June, September and December).

Its abbreviated title is Ci. Fl., which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips. The ISSN is 0103-9954 (printed version) and 1980-5098 (online version).
