About the Journal
Aims and Scope:
Jurnal Penelitian Kehutanan Wallacea focuses on issues of conservation of biological resources, including sustainable management of biological resources, social aspects, and policies in conservation. We are particularly interested in conservation issues in the biogeographical region of Wallacea, but conservation issues from other parts of the world are also welcome.
Wallacea is a strategic biogeographical region located between two continents, Asia and Australia, so the biodiversity in this region is extremely unique and specific, characterized by a high level of endemism. However, on the other hand, the conservation of biological resources in this region is under threat from overcrowding and an increasing population. Various approaches need to be continuously pursued in the context of managing existing biological resources to ensure their sustainable availability for the welfare of the people in this region.
Jurnal Penelitian Kehutanan Wallacea was found in 2012. Initially, this journal was a regular scientifically reviewed printed journal focusing on forestry sciences and managed by the Environmental and Forestry Research and Development Institute, Makassar, Indonesia. Online submissions started in November 2015 and are then published periodically biannually in March and August on the eJournal platform. Since 2023, this journal has been managed by the Forest Conservation Study Program, Faculty of Forestry, Hasanuddin University, and the focus of the study is adjusted to the Conservation of Biological Resources. We are particularly interested in conservation issues in the biogeographical region of Wallacea, but related conservation issues from other parts of the world are also welcome.
At present, Jurnal Penelitian Kehutanan Wallacea is accredited SINTA 2 by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology (MoECRT/Kemendikbudristek) of the Republic of Indonesia through the decree of number: 158/E/KPT/2021 on December 09th, 2021.
