Small-Scale Forestry

December 08, 2007

Small-Scale Forestry
http://springerlink.com/content/120445/

Emerging from discussions within IUFRO¹s Small-scale Forestry group, Small-scale Forestry was originally published as Small-scale Forest Economics, Management and Policy in 2002, with a view to providing an international forum for publishing high quality, peer-reviewed papers on pure and applied research into small-scale forestry. Although of particular interest to the global research community, the journal is also relevant to both policy makers and forest managers. The scope of the journal is necessarily quite broad, given the range of issues relevant to small-scale forestry. These include the social, economic and technical dimensions of farm, family, non-industrial, agro- and community forestry. Papers are accepted on the basis that they relate specifically to forestry at this scale, and that they are based on high quality research using accepted quantitative and/or qualitative methodology. Empirical, theoretical, modeling, and methodological papers are all welcome. The following research areas are particularly relevant to the journal:

* the role of small-scale forestry in rural development
* financial modeling and decision support systems
* enhancing return from non-wood products
* social impacts of small-scale forestry
* marketing, forest co-operatives and growers organizations
* role and effectiveness of government support and subsidies
* innovative research techniques
* education and extension
* certification
* silvicultural, wood harvesting and processing techniques and technologies
* impediments to small-scale forestry development
* monitoring socio-economics
* forest management behaviour and timber supply.

Factbites – Results Make Sense

Factbites – Results Make Sense
http://www.Factbites.com/

Factbites is a new approach to search. Under the slogan “where results make sense”, Factbites provides searchers with full sentences about their search topic, rather than the sentence fragments most search engines offer. Rather than focusing on link-based technology like Google, Factbites delves into the tone and subject matter of the given topic. The engine “reads” the content of each page and determines how meaningful the text is. It seeks out authoritative and informative content, preferring encyclopedia-style fact-based descriptions to the chatty, spammy and inconsequential. The end result is a clean summary you can almost read from beginning to end. Not only is this an effective filter against spam and clutter, it’s also a time saver, because it gives users a clear picture of what each destination site is about. For encyclopedia-style content, the site makes some large claims. The website challenges users to compare Factbites results to Google results at Factbites vs. Google.
