CreatorJ.D. Sauerländer's Verlag
DescriptionThe Allgemeine Forst- und Jagdzeitung is the oldest forestry scientific journal worldwide. Its editorial 'principle of equality', in which the scientific quality, and not the age or status of the author, was the decisive factor for accepting a manuscript, is now accepted by every self-respecting journal, has been operating for more than 175 years. The international recognition of the journal is reflected by its inclusion in the Science Citation Index (SCI) of the Institute for Scientific Information. There has always been close cooperation between Sauerländer’s and the forestry scientific community. The current editorial board consists of active scientists engaged in forest research and teaching at several European universities. The publication of the first issue of the Allgemeine Forst- und Jagdzeitung in 1832 by J.D. Sauerländer's Verlag established forestry as an important scientific discipline with a widespead following. Previous publications within the environmental context had been rather descriptive and general, even romantic. Influenced by developments in the emerging natural sciences, the new editorial policy favoured rigorous reporting of scientific investigation. The contents and abstracts of current issues (most recent 3 years) are freely available, with full text available to subscribers. The full text of archive issues are available as pdf. The language of publication is German (with English abstracts), with occasional papers in English.
