Re: Wood and Fiber Science Subscriptions 2022 Dear Author/Member,

Wood and Fiber Science is the scientific journal sponsored by the Society of Wood Science and Technology (SWST). This letter is to inform you of changes occurring as of January 1, 2022.


Moving forward from January 1, Wood and Fiber Science will be Open Access.


  • The journal will only be online, there will be no print copies.
  • Color photos/graphics will be offered at no additional cost to authors.
  • The Open Access fee will be $1800/article for SWST members and $2000/article for nonmembers.


We feel these changes will encourage greater author participation since this journal uses a rigorous double-blind review process with at least 2 to 3 reviewers per article. We are dedicated to preserving this high quality of published scientific research. We look forward to your continued support as an author/member.






Victoria L. Herian, Executive Director Society of Wood Science and Technology
