  • Publishing high-quality research articles addressing theoretical and methodological issues in disaster science, emergency response technology, disaster risk management, and large-scale disaster risk governance.
  • Closely linked to the on-going Integrated Risk Governance Project, one of the Global Research Projects under Future Earth.
  • Creating an exchange platform for sharing information and experiences from disaster risk analysis, management, and governance.

International Journal of Disaster Risk Science (IJDRS) is a fully sponsored, peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. It addresses theoretical and methodological issues in all areas of disaster risk science, policy, and practice. Coverage includes case studies and research comparing responses to major disasters worldwide.

IJDRS promotes Future Earth – Integrated Risk Governance Project research. This includes revealing the dynamic processes of disaster risk; using case studies and comparative analyses to establish risk governance models targeting disasters that might exceed capacities; refining modeling tools; and fostering integrated disaster risk science that meets the challenges of sustainable development.

The journal is a platform for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, which aims to improve international, national, and regional capacities for disaster risk analysis, management, and governance.

The publication costs for IJDRS are covered by Beijing Normal University and the China Association for Science and Technology so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge.

The journal operates a double-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers do not know the names or affiliations of the authors and the reviewer reports provided to the authors are anonymous.

All articles published are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers. Further information about open access can be found at https://www.springeropen.com/about/open-access.

    Aims and Scope

    Close

    The International Journal of Disaster Risk Science (IJDRS) provides a pioneering platform for researchers and practitioners aiming at greater resilience and integrated risk governance in view of local, regional, and global disasters. IJDRS breaks new ground in research about disaster risks by connecting in-depth studies of actual disasters and of specific practices of disaster risk management with investigations of the global dynamics of disaster risks and theories and models relevant for advanced integrated risk governance.

    The journal’s primary aim is to enable the disaster risk community to communicate, learn, and progress in order to improve the capacities for integrated disaster risk and resilience identification, measurement, and governance at all scales.

    IJDRS is an interdisciplinary English language journal that publishes research articles that are problem-driven and solution-oriented, providing insights on major disasters in a timely fashion and addressing theoretical and methodological issues in disaster risk science.
