Fire Ecology, 2011
Volume 7, Issue 3
Message from the Editor
Author: James K. Agee
We have been discussing the adoption of the Open Journal System (OJS), which should help streamline the peer review process. We might possibly also adopt the OJS publication system sometime in the future. In the next year or two, we hope to publish some special issues, focusing on particular topics of interest (e.g., fire and alien species, fire and old-growth forests, etc.). Recently, the Association for Fire Ecology Board approved a manuscript charge (rather than a page charge), and I’ll be working to smoothly manage that process as it is first implemented in this issue of the journal.
The Association for Fire Ecology has always held high standards for Fire Ecology, and I’m committed to maintaining those ideals. We’re always looking for excellent manuscripts, so send them along!
