About the Journal of Forest Products Business Research

Thank you for your interest in the Journal of Forest Products Business Research.  We are no longer publishing new articles/issues of JFPBR (as of  January 2014).  Please visit our Knowledge Base to view the historical archives.  We appreciate the hard work of those members who served on the editorial team and the authors who published their work with us.  JFPBR started in 2004 as an electronic publication that provided a forum for timely, rigorous, technically sound, scientific research manuscripts that focus on the forest industry. This international, peer-reviewed, technical e-journal was dedicated to the recognition and growth of the academic field of forest products business, particularly management and marketing. The goal was to disseminate new knowledge bridging the scientific and professional communities. 

Article Types

The JFPBR featured three types of manuscripts: scientific papers, synthesis papers, and editorials. Regardless of type, articles contributed something new to the body of scientific knowledge in the broad fields of forest products business and marketing. Research papers, theoretically or empirically oriented, describe investigations directed to the discovery of new knowledge. Synthesis papers summarize published and unpublished information that describe the state-of-the-art in scientific knowledge on a topic. Editorials allowed members of the scientific community to express their opinions regarding the field and the state of research.
