Disaster Prevention and Management (DPM) advances knowledge in the field of disaster risk reduction and management.

DPM bridges the gap between academic disciplines and stakeholders, including policy makers, practitioners, representatives of the civil society and local communities. It particularly welcomes contributions which emphasise multi-disciplinary and multi-actor perspectives on innovative topics related to disaster risk reduction and management.

The journal covers:

  • Hazards and disasters studies
  • Disaster risk reduction and management
  • Impacts of and response to disasters
  • Post-disaster recovery

The journal encourages the contribution of junior scholars, authors from less affluent countries and non-native English speakers. Support is provided to assist them throughout the reviewing and publication of their manuscript.

The journal publishes two types of articles. Long papers (up to 7,000 words) cover conceptual and theoretical reflections, methodological contributions and case studies. Short articles (up to 4,000 words) including commentaries, policy and practice briefings and field reports and book reviews. For the latter, reviewers are encouraged to send their review to the book author(s) to solicit a reply, which will be published
