Thanks to the David Woodbridge and Andrew Gibson collections we have uploaded the first 17 issues, covering 1999 to 2007, of the former Institute of Wood Science's in-house journal.
There are many articles ranging from wood science to company profiles to people.
Sample copies are publicly available, and the remainder are available to current IOM3 members only.
From 2010 Woodfocus became an E-zine. (Please note that these are also Member only content.)
