Round table with the Chief Editors of the review Annals of Forest Science : 
Publishing in forest science: new challenges with respect to Open Science.

Wednesday, March 29, 10:00-11:00
AgroParisTech, Nancy, Salle Jacamon

Andreas Bolte (Thünen Institute, Eberswalde); Erwin Dreyer (INRAE, Nancy); Marco Ferretti (WSL, Birmensdorf); John Lhotka (University of Kentucky); Jean Michel Leban (INRAE, Nancy); Shuguang Liu (Central South University of Forestry and Technology, Changha, Hunan).

The publishing landscape has considerably changed over the last decades due to the rapid development of digital tools and to the transition to open science practices. Forest science is no exception in this respect. The traditional publication process is overwhelmingly challenged by the rapid dissemination of new information over the internet. On one hand, new tools allow access to contents, data, codes and all relevant information around a research project and new editorial procedures favour cooperation and rapid dissemination. On the other hand, this situation creates some confusion for both authors and readers, and some publishers strongly benefit from this confusion by providing poor services at high costs for authors. After a few words of introduction by the editors, they will answer the questions and exchange with all participants on this topic from a forest science perspective.
