Types of manuscripts we accept

We generally accept the following types of manuscripts or journal submissions:

1. Papers / Articles

Papers are the feature pieces of the journal. They provide a detailed analysis of the topic under discussion.  Articles should have between 3000 and 4000 words (excluding references/footnotes). Special permission will have to be sought from the editors to consider pieces longer than this. All articles must be referenced using the Harvard style.  Articles with a practice focus are accepted but should be of practical relevance and must still be fully referenced.

2. Student Papers / Article

Student papers are those detailing research undertaken at either undergraduate or postgraduate level usually between 2000 and 3000 words.  Students must usually receive the backing of their current tutors and provide written evidence of this. All articles must be referenced using the Harvard style.

3. Research Digest / Updates

Research updates are an important aspect of the journal in communicating current research projects and the progross within these to those within the field.  They usually consist of one or two short paragraphs (approximatley 300-500 words) from each research project which combine into a fuller digest covering multiple projects.

4. Book Reviews

Book reviews are a key component of the journal which allows relevant books to be reviewed, and the readers view of the book to be shared with the Resilience community.  They are usually less than a 1000 words and provide the opinion and views of a single reader. 

5. Innovative Practice Update

This section of the journal is essentially for emergency planning/management practitioners to initiate the sharing of innovative work that tackles issues faced by the wider field.  There should be a benefit to readers of sharing such examples and submissions should clearly set out the aims and objectives of the work, how these were met, details of the innovative work itself, and the measurement of sucess.  Submissions in this area should be a maximun of 1500 words and should ideally provide a link back to evidence within established and related literature.  Additional documentation (such as template, reports, media files, etc) can be shared via our website should you wish to provide these for download and dissemination to the resilience community.

6. Obituaries

Please contact the editor for guidance if you wish to place an obituary for someone from the emergency management and/or resilience field.
