By archiving with CLOCKSS, the Finnish Society of Forest Science has ensured that the scholarship in their publications will be available for a worldwide audience now and in the future in a manner that secures them for the long-term good of scholars."

About: The Finnish Society of Forest Science was founded in 1909 to promote research in forest and wood science in Finland. The Society is a network of researchers and it strives to enhance the links between researchers and practical foresters and promote public interest in forest research.

Finnish Society of Forest Science started science publishing in 1913 by establishing the journal Acta Forestalia Fennica. Its first issue contained two monograph-style research reports written in German. During the early years, the publications of the Society were commonly edited in Finnish or German but some papers appeared in English or French. Silva Fennica was established in 1926 for publishing ”short” research reports, i.e. articles written in the concise style of today’s research articles. The Finnish Society of Forest Science started publishing cooperation with the Finnish Forest Research Institute in 1994 and English became the only publishing language of Silva Fennica. The same year, online publication of the abstracts began. Open access publication of whole text articles in the Internet began in 1998. Thus, Silva Fennica was among the first international scientific journals to go online. In 2000, Acta Forestalia Fennica merged with Silva Fennica because submission of monographs almost ceased.

Silva Fennica has established reputation as one of leading forest science journals of the world. The 100th year of forest science publishing by the Finnish Society of Forest Science, 2013, brings another important change for Silva Fennica because it goes online only. Open access publishing will continue. http://www.metsatieteellinenseura.fi/julkaisut
