InternationalJournal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment has just published its inaugural issue

Thursday 1 April 2010

Free online access is available from 1st April until 1st June 2010.

IJCRBE aims to develop the skills and knowledge of the built environment professions and other professions working in disaster mitigation and reconstruction, so that they may strengthen their capacity in strategic and practical aspects of disaster preparedness, rehabilitation and reconstruction to mitigate the effects of disasters nationally and internationally. 

The journal will contain a mix of academic papers, book reviews, case studies and field studies. It will promote the exchange of ideas between practitioners, policy-makers and academics, and provide a unique forum for novel enquiries into the development and application of new and emerging practices as a source of innovation to challenge current thinking.  

For more information and details on the full coverage of IJDRBE please visit the journal website.

Submissions to the Journal are made using Manuscript Central, Emerald's online submission and peer review system.

Full information and guidance on using Manuscript Central is available at the Emerald Manuscript Central Support Centre.
