Jurnal Sylva Lestari (JSL) focuses on all dimensions of forest management, including but not limited to planning, conservation, sylviculture, socioeconomics, and the utilization of forest resources, with a focus in particular on the tropical forests of Indonesia. We are also eager to include contributions from other geographical scopes as long as they can convincingly demonstrate a critical significance to the concerns that are plaguing Indonesia's forested landscape.

It is primarily a medium for disseminating original theoretical and experimental researches, as well as technical reviews. This journal issues one volume annually consist of three issues that delivered every January, May, and September. JSL is published by University of Lampung in collaboration with Indonesia Network for Agroforestry Education (INAFE) - SEANAFE.
