How to publish in this journal


"Mathematical and Computational Forestry & Natural-Resource Sciences" (MCFNS) is an international scientific journal dedicated to the promotion, publication, and public discussion, of high quality studies on the basic mathematical and computational research in forestry and natural resource sciences. The title of the journal is intended to be descriptive of this journal's main focus and scope. The journal is all-inclusive in the sense that it invites publications from a range of topics varying in scope from "Mathematical Forestry" to "Mathematical Natural-Resource Sciences," and from "Computational Forestry" to "Computational Natural-Resource Sciences." The notions of "Mathematical" and "Computational" sciences are intended to indicate a double focus on two opposite ends of the contemporary natural resource sciences spectrum. One end is the traditional Rationalist, derivation-based foundation of theoretical thinking that was the origin of all the sciences, but in recent decades, with the growing availability of inexpensive computers, is losing ground to the overriding usage of data-analysis-based studies. The other end of the spectrum is inevitably what many aspects of natural sciences must converge to in taking advantage of emerging and ever-growing and more readily available super-computing power. Inasmuch as the increasing computing resources demote the basic analytical research, replacing it with expedient empirical solutions, they promote a different kind of analytical research by opening new ways of structuring scientific pursuits, asking formerly unanswerable questions, and solving formerly insolvable problems with the use of computer-based modeling and simulations.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
