New journal on Southeast Asia : Forest and society

Forest and Society, vol. 1, n° 1, april 2017 (Open access)

Welcome to our first edition. We are excited to provide a new, and what we believe, timely avenue for presenting research findings and publications in Southeast Asia, for scholars interested in Southeast Asia. Although Southeast Asia as a region of study has provided tremendous contributions to theory and practice regarding forests and society across the social and natural sciences, avenues for cultivating a scholarship of the region remain limited. Complete description can be seen here.
