Aims and scope

CERNE is a Brazilian journal especially designed to publish forest science articles. The Federal University of Lavras/Brazil is our institution/publisher since 1992. The purpose is to share the scientists' highlights with everyone who has a passion for plantations or natural forests. These original articles cover Silviculture, forest management, forest ecology and wood Science and technology topics. We encourage authors to explore beyond their limits and focus on new technologies and revolutionary ideas. The clear hypothesis, methods and social benefits are welcome within forest uses. A peer-review process is double-blind with a high level of quality till acceptance. Editors are trained to support authors for better performances. The documents (manuscripts, reviews, published articles)  are safe in our institution database (Repository policy). We have open access, no fees or article processing charges (APC), and all articles are free for social media use. Despite our location, we are an international journal accepting only English manuscripts.

ORCID

We encourage all authors to visit the website of Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) project, which is a global and not-for-profit organization. The ORCID number is a unique, persistent identifier for individuals to use that connects research with their contributions across disciplines, borders, and articles.
