The journal is the result of many years of planning and research, based on Editor Emily Hough’s extensive publishing experience in the fire and emergency services field. All this is underpinned by the firmest conviction that a truly international outlook is essential for emergency responders and planners, so that they can learn from the experience of their colleagues elsewhere in the world, and share their own expertise on a global platform.
The journal also intends to help bridge the gap between academic and educational researchers, and the political response to the threat of large scale emergencies, distilling different perspectives and analyses into practical operational strategies for those in charge of front line response.
Crisis Response Journal publishes comprehensive international news, incident analyses, topical reports, interviews and features to make sure that readers are fully informed of what is going on elsewhere in the world and to apply this knowledge to their own roles and responsibilities.
The journal also features in-depth – but readable and clearly presented – articles on a series of regular topics, which collate into an indispensable reference tool on a wide range of issues, essential for training and development.
Our Editorial Advisory Panel has been drawn from the world’s leading emergency experts, from a number of agencies, in order to present the widest possible picture on familiar issues and problems. This panel is continually evolving as we bring more specialists on board. Their role is to provide advice and input to ensure we provide readers with the best possible coverage and service.
Crisis Response Journal relies on subscriptions, making us answerable to our readers as regards the quality and scope of our content.
But there is an added element – emergency responders have always worked closely with their suppliers to help develop improved products and services and we wish to strengthen this approach and integrate it into the journal’s ethos.
For that reason, we are working in partnership with trusted and reputable leaders from the fire, emergency and rescue industries. Our partners are not viewed as sources for funding, as is the case on most other publications, but are valued contributors to the overall quality of the journal.
This approach means that our editorial independence is assured and will not be driven by the need to attract as much advertising as possible to fund the publication.
We will be relying on the commitment of our subscribers and we are convinced that there is a genuine will among emergency services and planners to broaden their perspectives and horizons, to take best practice from wherever it might originate, and to implement research and command issues from other areas of the world.
As part of our aim to increase knowledge and educational resources to the international fire and rescue community, members of the Institution of Fire Engineers can take advantage of a 35% subscription discount. A number of other institutions and associations also qualify for discounts, and bulk subscription rates are also available on request.
