The new journal, Disaster Prevention and Resilience (DPR), aims to serve as a widely recognized platform for timely dissemination of research results and new findings as well as to provide a broad forum for sharing valuable theories, methods, technologies, and strategies pertaining to the areas of disaster prevention and the resilient city system. The main areas of interest include the spectrum of topics: natural and human-instigated disasters, e.g., earthquake, fire, flood, hurricane, geological disaster, extreme climate, environmental pollution, public health, and urban science; disaster risk perception and communication; disaster risk analysis; disaster risk-informed decision making; disaster risk reduction and management; disaster resilience of built environment; sustainability under global warming; social science/urban planning; and intelligent application and education in disaster prevention and resilience.
The mission of the journal is to bring to the communities of researchers and practitioners innovative theories, promising methods, practical technologies, advanced strategies, and insightful case studies. We warmly welcome prospective authors to submit their new research or technological contributions to the journal DPR.
We truly believe DPR will promote the research and applications of advanced theories, methods, and strategies for disaster prevention and risk management, helping to maintain the human, social, economic, and environmental aspects of sustainability.
