As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
Aims and scope
The Journal of Wood Science is the official journal of the Japan Wood Research Society. This journal provides an international forum for the exchange of knowledge and the discussion of current issues in wood and its utilization. The journal publishes original articles on basic and applied research dealing with the science, technology, and engineering of wood, wood components, wood and wood-based products, and wood constructions. Articles concerned with pulp and paper, fiber resources from non-woody plants, wood-inhabiting insects and fungi, wood biomass, and environmental and ecological issues in forest products are also included. In addition to original articles, the journal publishes review articles on selected topics concerning wood science and related fields. The editors welcome the submission of manuscripts from any country.
