OAE Publishing Inc. is very honored to announce that Disaster Prevention and Resilience (DPR), a new journal focused on disaster prevention, was officially released online on June 4, 2021.

DPR is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal devoted to developing knowledge and capacity in strategic and practical aspects of reducing the impact of natural and human-instigated disasters. DPR publishes applied and fundamental research, critical reviews, policy papers, and case studies with a particular focus on multi-disciplinary fields.

We are honored to have successfully invited Professor Jie Li from Tongji University, China, to be the Editor-in-Chief for the new journal DPR.

Professor Li is currently a distinguished University Professor at Tongji University in the College of Civil Engineering. He specializes in the area of earthquake engineering and urban resilience. He received an honorary doctorate in engineering from Aalborg University, Denmark in 2013, and received the 2014 Alfred M. Freudenthal Medal from ASCE (the first Asian to be awarded since the medal was launched in 1975). Professor Li has been one of the first group of Cheung Kong Scholar Professors entitled by the Ministry of Education of China since 1999. He is currently the president of the International Association for Structural Safety and Reliability (IASSAR), and the vice-chairman of the Chinese Society for Vibration Engineering. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Tongji University (Natural Science Series) and is the editorial board member of over ten international and Chinese academic journals, including the Probabilistic Engineering Mechanics and Structural Safety.

Under the active invitations of Professor Li, 24 outstanding scholars with significant academic influences in the field joined the Editorial Board. Professor Li and the members of the Editorial Board have made detailed plans for the future development of DPR and are full of confidence in making DPR an international influence journal in this field.

OAE highly appreciate the great support of Professor Li and all members of the Editorial Board, and the Editorial Office of DPR will work jointly with Professor Li to create a high-level journal with international influence. We believe that with the joint efforts of Professor Li and all members of the Editorial Board and the Editorial Office, this goal will be achieved in the near future.
