Fire and Forests aims at providing strong relevant scientific information to advance research and application of information about fire. The section publishes original, refereed research on fire in forest, woodland and savannah ecosystems. The Specialty Section welcomes manuscripts on all aspects of wildland fire in the context of global change, including experimental, descriptive, and simulation approaches. Research themes include, but are not limited to, fire behavior and effects, fire ecology at all levels in ecosystem organization and across spatial and temporal scales, attributes of fuels, interactions of fire and other ecological disturbances, fire management, fire in climate adaptation and mitigation strategies, and social, cultural, and economic aspects of wildland fire, including relatively underrepresented themes such as traditional fire knowledge worldwide. Studies that incorporate multiple disciplines to address the complexity of forest fire issues are welcome.

PMCID: coming soon for all published articles
Fire and Forests welcomes submissions of the following article types: Case Report, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Policy Brief, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Fire and Forests, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Fire and Forests will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Forests and Global Change.
