Job title

Managing Editor


My scientific background is in tropical agroforestry and forest ecology. After leaving the active research career, I have been working as the Executive Manager of the Finnish Society of Forest Science. My employer is a learned society that also publishes three scientific journals. Silva Fennica ( is an international peer-reviewed journal published on Golden Open Access principle. It is among the top 25% of forest-related journals in Scopus. Metsätieteen aikakauskirja is published in Finnish and it is intended for communication of research findings to the professional community. I have been working as an Associate Editor for both. Our third journal, Dissertationes Forestales, is dedicated to publishing doctoral dissertations in forest sciences. As the chief executive of a small publisher, I work on all aspects of scholarly publication, including both editorial and publisher responsabilities.
