International Journal of Disaster Risk Science (IJDRS) is a fully sponsored, peer-reviewed open access journal. 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.

  • 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.
