Aims and Scope

WST publishes original scientific research findings of wood material science, wood components, conversion of wood into pulp, biorefinery products and wood based products and relevant methodological developments. The scope include but not limited to research in the fields of wood quality, wood biology, mechanical and technological properties, processes, uses, wood physics and chemistry. Research advances in areas of wood based products, structural applications and composite materials, cell wall and wood formation; structural and chemical composition of wood and wood composites and their property relations; physical, mechanical and chemical characterization and microbiological degradation of wood and wood based products are the primary research focus fields. 
Types of paper that are published in Wood Science Transactions: 
1. Original research papers. The papers should report the results of original research and should not have been previously published elsewhere or submitted for review. 
2. Review articles. Review articles are encouraged. The most useful reviews go beyond summarizing the literature and focus on synthesizing key insights that will be most useful to readers. 
3. Papers for Special Issues. Wood Science Transactionspublishes research on advance topics to present new research in different fields.

Author Representations 
Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co¬authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities — tacitly or explicitly — at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation. 

Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors. 

Online Submission 
Authors should submit their manuscripts online via the ASRE website at: http:///
Hard copy submissions are no longer accepted. Detail Guidelines can be downloadedhere. 

Review Policy
All papers submitted to our journals go through a rigorous review process. They are refereed by experts in said field before publication. There exist four possible outcomes for each paper submitted and reviewed: acceptance, acceptance after minor revision, major revision and re-submission, or rejection. This prevents the promulgation of pseudoscience and insures intellectual and scientific integrity of the findings published by SEP. The Editor-in-Chief is the first to see an author's work. They are to forward the paper to experts in the specific field discussed in the paper for review. After review, the Editor-in-Chief of the journal will look over the reviewer's comments. If two reviewers seem to hold opposite opinions of the same paper, the controversy will be resolved by the Editor-in-Chief. Ultimately, the Editor-in-Chief makes the final decision. The final decision is being one of the aforementioned possibilities: acceptance, acceptance with noted changes, or rejection of paper. We are also looking forward to offering an online journal club for each journal. This will allow a further platform for peer commendation or critique.
