Journal of Applied Volcanology is an international journal with a focus on applied research relating to volcanism and particularly its societal impacts. Characterising volcanic risk relies on not only quantifying physical threat but also understanding social and physical vulnerability and resilience. The broad aim of volcanologists in this domain is to increase public resilience to volcanic risk via research that reduces human fatalities, and volcanic impacts on livelihoods, infrastructure, and the economy. Journal of Applied Volcanology fills an important gap for scientists who want to publish research that addresses this aim and wish to reach a broad audience.

The journal has a holistic view of the relationship between volcanoes and society, and therefore welcomes mono- and multi- disciplinary articles from all scientific areas that deal with impacts related to volcanism. Research topics covered by the journal include: understanding the impacts of eruptions on communities, new methods for risk analysis; improving risk management; enhancing community mitigation, preparedness, response to and recovery from volcanic hazard events; health issues related to volcanism; social adaptation to volcanic hazards; policy and institutional aspects of disaster risk management; applications of physical volcanology. The journal aims for rapid publication of high-impact research and review papers.
