UNASYLVA Call for student submissions

Dear IFSA students,

FAO will give to IFSA students the opportunity to publish an article in the next issue of its Journal UNASYLVA. This is a great chance for students that want to profile their work in a first-class peer-reviewed journal and influence policy and decision-makers.

The deadline for submissions is Friday September 20th, 2013. Note the rapidly approaching deadline; however you might be able to update a previously submitted paper for a class or some kind of unpublished work that can be modified to conform to the guidelines of Unasylva.

You can publish original research or an article generated from secondary literature, but not purely opinion pieces. There will be an internal IFSA selection process that will select the best four or five articles to be submitted to FAO, and then UNASYLVA editors will select the best one for publication.

Please write an email to Andrea Vásquez (andrea.vasquez.ifsa@gmail.com) if you are planning to submit an article, so we can give you additional information and feedback throughout the process.

We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity!

If interested, here is more information that was provided by FAO:
