Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika is a periodic scientific articles and conceptual thinking of tropical forest management covering all aspects of forest planning, forest policy, forest resources utilization, forest ergonomics, forest ecology, forest inventory, silviculture, and management of regional ecosystems.

Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika has been re-accredited "A" from the Directorate General of Higher Education (DIKTI) through the Decree of Directorate General of Higher Education No. 36a/E/KPT/2016.  Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika is indexed in SCOPUS, Emerging Sources Citation Index (Clarivate Analytics) since November 2017, also in Science and Technology Index 1 (SINTA 1, SINTA is Indonesian Government official indexing body). Since October 24th, 2018 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika has been recognized as PERINGKAT 1 journal based on the Directorate General of Research and Development Strengthening of Ministry of Research Technology and Higher Education of Indonesian Republic (Decree No. 30/E/KPT/2018). This PERINGKAT 1 status has been extended up to November 2023 (Decree No. 200/M/KPT/2020).

Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika focuses on disseminates knowledge in managing tropical forest with its unique features, biological and ecological sphere that rely on a very complex and interrelated system. Therefore, Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika covers wide discussions on multi scientific disciplines, i.e., forest planning, forest policy, forest resources utilization, forest ergonomics, forest ecology, forest inventory, silviculture, management of regional ecosystems, forest economics, anthropology, social, and environmental sicences.

Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika publishes articles in the forms of Short Communication, Scientific Article, and Conceptual Paper.

Short Communications are short papers that present original and significant research for rapid dissemination. It does not need to cover neither detailed background information nor a comprehensive evaluation. The focus is on quick publication of preliminary or other results that are related (but is not limited) to addressing new ideas, controversial opinions, "negative" results, an emerging topic, new directions for application and transition of results into the industry, and much more. The work reported needs to be novel and advancing the state of the art. Acceptance is based on peer review results (short cycle), novelty, and impact on the state-of-the art. Short Communications are limited to 2500 words (approx. 4 pages, a figure counts as 200 words) and should have no more than 10 references. Short communications may be edited for clarity or length and may be subject to peer review at the editors' discretion. Fast turn-around times are one of the key benefits of short communications providing a competitive advantage to authors. Authors are required to submit an extended version of the paper to JMHT at a later stage, so that there is continuity from short communication to scientific article.

Scientific articles are detailed studies reporting original research conducted by the author, which is a substantial, in-depth, novel research study of interest to the readership of the journal. This is the most common type of journal manuscript used to publish full reports of data from research. Scientific articles generally consist of the following components: a title and abstract, an introduction, a methodology, results, discussion, and references. Scientific articles include received/accepted dates and may be accompanied by supplementary information. Articles are peer reviewed. The scholars will review the article for, among other things, the appropriateness of its methodology and its relevance to the field. They may suggest revisions. The peer review process is lengthy. It may be a year or longer between the time an article is submitted and its publication.

Conceptual papers do not present original data, but it must present an original concept, because their focus is on integration and proposing new relationships among constructs. The purpose is thus to develop logical and complete arguments about these associations rather than testing them empirically. It synthesises knowledge from previous work on a particular topic, and presents it in a new context to provide a springboard for new research that will fill knowledge gaps. A conceptual paper addresses a question that cannot be answered simply by getting more factual information. A purely conceptual question is one to which factual information is not even relevant. Conceptual papers should not follow the status quo; they need to show how moving beyond the current norm will enhance knowledge. In a conceptual paper, the review section should be relatively brief, as the piece then moves to tackle one area in need of attention from a theoretical lens. A good conceptual paper may also build theory by offering propositions regarding previously untested relationships.
