Call for Submissions: California Agriculture Special Issue on Forests and Bioenergy
California Agriculture is the University of California's peer-reviewed, open access quarterly journal on agricultural, natural and human resources. It has been published continuously since 1946. The journal reaches a diverse, well-educated audience of academics, growers, research scientists in agencies, legislators, local and county officials and journalists (http://californiaagriculture.ucanr.edu). Authors are primarily, but not exclusively, faculty from the University of California and its Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
California Agriculture plans to publish a special collection highlighting significant research relating to forestry and bioenergy. Tentatively scheduled for spring of 2015, the primary content of the collection will be previously unpublished, original research, or reviews of such research, conducted at the nexus of forestry and energy systems. News material in the front section of the journal will provide a context for understanding the importance of reported findings.
Possible subject matter includes but is not limited to:
- Bioenergy silviculture
- Forestry residuals production and economics
- Dedicated wood energy crop production
- Life-cycle impacts of forest management/production systems
- Environmental impacts of wood bioenergy
- Sustainability of forest-based bioenergy systems
