NRC Research Press is a division of Canadian Science Publishing - a not-for-profit publisher


The NRC Research Press journals are Canadian Science Publishing’s flagship suite of award-winning international publications. We publish 20 titles under this imprint, many in continuous publication since 1929.


The journals cover a broad range of scientific disciplines and feature more than 2000 articles each year published on a state-of-the-art electronic platform. These award-winning, high-impact scientific and technical journals have an international readership in more than 175 countries.


In September 2010, the Press transitioned out of the National Research Council of Canada into an independent not-for-profit organization operating under the name Canadian Science Publishing. The new company retained its highly skilled staff and its editorial team comprising some of the world’s leading researchers, and today continues a long tradition of quality and innovation.


Canadian Science Publishing is an independent, not-for-profit scholarly publisher dedicated to serving the needs of researchers and their communities.Visit the Canadian Science Publishing website for more information about our organization, publishing services, support for societies, and other initiatives.

A survey was conducted among 126 experts to assess a comprehensive array of 44 research, development, and deployment (RD&D) needs previously identified by landowners (Marchand and Masse 2008) for four short-rotation plantation or agroforestry systems based on willow or hybrid poplar in Canada.

We used novel remote sensing techniques to compare the landscape-scale patterns of forest structure in Pennsylvania, USA under the management of four different agencies with varying primary objectives, including production forestry, wildlife habitat, recreation, and private ownership. We (i) developed a forest structure classification scheme using publicly available LiDAR and orthographic aerial imagery data, (ii) mapped the forest structure across twenty forested landscapes, and (iii) compared the landscape-scale forest structure patterns among the four forest management types.

Canada’s National Forest Inventory (NFI) sampling program is designed to support reporting on forests at the national scale. On the other hand, continuous maps of forest attributes are required to support strategic analyses of regional policy and management issues. We have therefore produced maps covering 4.03 × 10⁶ km² of inventoried forest area for the 2001 base year using standardised observations from the NFI photo plots (PP) as reference data.

Smoke from forest fires is a serious and increasing land management concern. However, a paucity of information exists that is specific to public perceptions of smoke. This study used conjoint analysis, a multivariate technique, to evaluate how four situational factors (i.e., smoke origin, smoke duration, health impact, and advanced warning) influence public tolerance of smoke in the northern Rocky Mountains and south-central United States.

Decades of heavy-cutting and high-grading in the northeastern United States provide an opportunity for rehabilitation and increased carbon stores, yet few studies have examined the feasibility of using carbon markets to restore high-graded forests. We evaluated the effectiveness of rehabilitation on 391 ha of high-graded forest in Vermont, USA. Thirteen silvicultural scenarios were modeled over 100 years using the Forest Vegetation Simulator.
