CreatorThe Wood Technology Society
DescriptionThe Wood Technology Society (previously the Institute of Wood Science - IWSc) is a division of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3). It is a professional association for the timber industry in the UK. Its purpose is to advance and encourage the scientific, technical, practical and general knowledge of timber and wood based materials. It does this through its journal, magazine, conferences and courses. The Society is not a teaching organisation; it is an assessment/examining body vetting performance levels which demonstrate a recognised standard of competence by those pursuing wood technology courses at pre-degree level. The International Wood Products Journal is the society's peer reviewed journal (formerly the Institute of Wood Science Journal) and is published fours times a year.
