How to publish in this journal


The International Journal of Disaster Risk Science (IJDRS) provides a pioneering platform for researchers and practitioners aiming at greater resilience and integrated risk governance in view of local, regional, and global disasters. IJDRS breaks new ground in research about disaster risks by connecting in-depth studies of actual disasters and of specific practices of disaster risk management with investigations of the global dynamics of disaster risks and theories and models relevant for advanced integrated risk governance. The journal’s primary aim is to enable the disaster risk community to communicate, learn, and progress in order to improve the capacities for integrated disaster risk and resilience identification, measurement, and governance at all scales. IJDRS is an interdisciplinary English language journal that publishes research articles that are problem-driven and solution-oriented, providing insights on major disasters in a timely fashion and addressing theoretical and methodological issues in disaster risk science. Topics · Human dimensions of disaster risk · Disaster risk governance and resilience · Disaster risk and resilience indicators and measurement · Global change and disaster risks · Development and risk transition · Empirical studies and perspectives on major disaster events Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
