Scientific research as a felt need for society


Manuel Loza-Murguia


At birth the Journal of the Andean Forest Research Society, in September 2008, seeks to make
visible to researchers and research, which often are locked in libraries, which spread in tiny, not
transcending beyond the laboratory , cabinet or presentation at a local conference.
The publications resulting from research, experience, methodological reflections or opinions on
relevant issues, with collective interest, should be part of an obligation on professional and
scientific society. The importance of a manuscript at various stages of evaluation, to its approval,
depends on the editorial board, to maintain the frequency, which helps to maintain the prestige and
opens doors for writers to see the seriousness it has.
