Focus and Scope

Aims & Scope:

Journal of Mountain Forests Protection (JMOUFORPRO) publishes original papers, either theoretical or experimental, that provide novel insights into Mountain Forests. The Journal’s subjects include, but are not restricted to, anatomy and morphology, cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, interactions with soil, mineral nutrients, water, pathogens, food culture, together with ecological, genetic and methodological aspects related to Mountain Forests.


JMOUFORPRO seeks to be the world’s premier open access outlet for academic research. As such, unlike traditional journals, JMOUFORPRO does not limit content due to page budgets or thematic significance. Rather, JMOUFORPRO evaluates the scientific and research methods of each article for validity and accepts articles solely on the basis of the research. Likewise, by not restricting papers to a narrow discipline, JMOUFORPRO facilitates the discovery of the connections between papers, whether within or between disciplines.

JMOUFORPRO offers authors quick review and decision times; a continuous-publication format; and global distribution for their research via JMOUFORPRO . All articles are professionally copyedited and typeset to ensure quality.

Those who should submit to JMOUFORPRO include:

  • Authors who want their articles to receive quality reviews and efficient production, ensuring the quickest publication time.
  • Authors who want their articles to receive free, broad, and global distribution on a powerful, highly discoverable publishing platform.
  • Authors who want their articles branded and marketed by a world-leading social science publisher.
  • Authors who want or need their articles to be open access because of university or government mandates.
