Über diese Zeitschrift

International Journal of Disaster Risk Science (IJDRS) is a fully sponsored, peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. It addresses theoretical and methodological issues in all areas of disaster risk science: emergency response technology and risk management; risk governance policies and regulations. Coverage includes case studies and research comparing responses to major disasters worldwide.

IJDRS promotes International Human Dimensions Program on Global Environmental Change – 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 which 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 policy makers, which aims to improve international, national and regional capacities for disaster risk analysis, management, and governance.
