PRO LIGNO is an open gate for international dissemination of scientific papers on topics related to wood science and engineering. Only original papers are accepted, presenting results of recent researches, as well as reviews and technical notes. Papers with a practical-applicative character in industry are mostly appreciated. All papers are peer-reviewed, considering that this is the most successful type of scientific publishing.
Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published elsewhere, is not under review elsewhere and open-access publication of the full-text article has been approved by all authors.
The author(s) is/are responsible for the accuracy of the whole paper and references.
