Open Science: challenges for a forest science journal
Keywords: open data, open access, data papers, forest and wood science, multidisciplinary journal, journal metrics
AbstractOpen science gains momentum as important funding agencies require compliance to its guidelines. These requirements imply, in addition to open access to journal content, several innovations. Many forestry journals are in severe competition with specialised journals that publish a growing fraction of forest science. Open science also offers an opportunity for the development of our journals, which we should not miss.
