About Forest and Society

Forest and Society is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal and is rated according to international publication standards. We swiftly publish articles online, with printed versions published twice a year on a broad category of topics. We invite scholarly contributions on Southeast Asia, including works beyond this geographical scope when engaging on a comparative or timely policy topic relevant to the region. Forest and Society promote scholarly, theoretical, pragmatic, and contemporary research, making a clear conceptual and methodological contribution to existing international literature. These may include but are not limited to various fields such as planning/management, geography, forestry, sociology, land-use, anthropology, history, ecology, legal studies, economics, environmental and sustainability studies, international relations, psychology, and others, particularly those that engage with forests, landscapes, forest-related industries, and other relevant land uses

Our international editorial board fills a gap in the socio-ecological fields by promoting interdisciplinary work on studying human-environment and human-forest relations, produced amidst and for those interested and located in the Southeast Asia region. The journal is not preferential to theoretical or applied research and seeks to serve as a bridge between knowledge levels. Current efforts are envisioned to gradually improve research quality alongside support to capacity-building initiatives to improve research in the region. In Forest and Society, it is also possible to publish special issues and special sections upon request. A special issue enables us to publish papers focusing on specific themes, often related to an emerging or under-researched topic.

Collaboration: Partnership with Web of Science Reviewer Recognition Service – a third-party reviewer recognition service by Clarivate

Jan 12, 2023

Forest and Society is pleased to announce that it has joined with the Web of Science Reviewer Recognition Service (by Clarivate) to formally acknowledge your peer review contributions. Your evaluations for participating issues of Forest and Society will be uploaded to your reviewer profile on Web of Science if you choose to take advantage of this arrangement.

Web of Science Reviewer Recognition Service – a third-party reviewer recognition service is a service that reviewers can sign up for and record their peer review history as a way of “getting credit for peer review.” Their goal is to improve research efficiency by leveraging high-quality peer review, and they do so by collaborating with publishers, academic institutions, and individual researchers to transform peer review into a quantifiable output that can be used to establish a researcher's credibility, impact, and influence.

Therefore, for editors/reviewers who have pre-reviewed articles that have been published in this journal, please immediately process the claims on the manuscript in their respective accounts. Meanwhile, Editors/Reviewers who do not yet have an account, please immediately create an account at Clarivate - Web of Science (register) or by logging in through the ORCiD account.


We encourage readers to sign up for the publishing notification service for this journal. Use the Register link at the top of the home page for the journal. This registration will result in the reader receiving the Table of Contents by email for each new issue of the journal. This list also allows the journal to claim a certain level of support or readership. See the journal's Privacy Statement, which assures readers that their name and email address will not be used for other purposes.

Duties of Authors

Reporting standards. Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.

Originality and Plagiarism. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publication. An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Acknowledgment of Sources. Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

Authorship of the Paper. Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest. All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

Fundamental Errors in Published Works. When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.

By submitting your article to Forest and Society, you and all co-authors of your submission agree to the terms of this license. You do not need to fill out a copyright form for confirmation. Please see the Copyright Notice
