Call for papers: JDR’s Special Issue on Great East Japan Earthquake

The Journal of Disaster Research (JDR) publishes special issues on the Great East Japan Earthquake. To make the most of this critical experience of the earthquake disaster as a yardstick for disaster prevention in the future, we call for research papers, survey reports, analyses and proposals related to the Great East Japan Earthquake from diverse perspectives. The special issues will be published annually from August 2012 (published) for five years. We look forward to your submission.

The Great East Japan Earthquake has caused an unprecedented scale of damage and had widespread effects. There is a need to study the actual condition of damages and countermeasures against disasters from a wide-ranging perspective and on a long-time basis. JDR will annually publish special issues on the Great East Japan Earthquake beginning in 2012, for five years, for the purpose of informing, recording and utilizing lessons learned from the earthquake. Page charges are in principle free. We call for papers through our website or other media, and expect contributions from a broad array of fields.
