The Trees for Life Journal welcomes submissions of articles, essays, informal writings and ideas. Here are the categories of submissions:
A discussion board where you can share traditional knowledge, ideas for possible new uses and proposed subjects for studies. You don’t have to be a “writer”—just share your knowledge and ideas.
Essays are published articles on relevant topics. They fit in three general categories:
Traditional uses – beneficial uses that are known and have been practiced, but may not have been studied
Reviews – reviews of the current scientific knowledge and literature
New uses – new ideas for potential uses and techniques
Small-scale field studies can be done by anyone with an understanding of the scientific method and the ability to perform an experiment. For studies that are conducted and featured in the journal, there are three levels of submission:
Study in Progress – You can post details of your study as it happens—from the initial idea through every phase of development, experimentation and reporting—and get feedback from the community and an expert “mentor.”
See the Call for Studies for ideas of subjects for study.
Article draft – a draft of the final study article. Comments from the community and from an expert “mentor” can help refine the article before submission for publication.
Research Article – final published article about a study
Articles may be submitted in either Microsoft Word (.doc) or Rich Text Format (.rtf) formats. If there are illustrations with your article, please include them in the same file as the article.
To submit an article for publication, go to Submit Article.
