Silva Fennica

Maintenance break on Silva Fennica website on Thursday, 18 September 2014

The journal management system of Silva Fennica will be updated on Thursday, 18 September 2014 starting at 12:00 Finnish time (GMT +2). This will cause a break in access and functionality of the system. The expected duration is half a day. Immediately after the update, the website will be functional but under testing, which may cause further minor problems for readers, authors, and reviewers. We will do our best to make the update process as smooth as possible for all users.
