Progress in Disaster Science is a new open access journal by Elsevier focusing on integrating research and policy in disaster research. It publishes:
- Invited Viewpoint articles focusing specifically on the advancement and implementation of the four priority areas of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
- Original Research Papers (author submissions) on disaster risk reduction; response; emergency management and recovery.
The inaugural Volume (and other early issues) will engage a diverse group of academics, senior policy makers, private sector and civil society practitioners – reflecting the key issues of disaster risk reduction and response/rehabilitation they are engaged in.
The Inaugural Volume will be officially launched at the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in May 2019.
Authors are invited to submit their Original Research Papers in the Disaster Science field, especially those that cover new innovations and approaches. The key criterion is that all papers submitted should report substantial progress in the field.
