CALL FOR PAPERS
Prediction and Mitigation of Natural Hazards
PLOS ONE, PLOS WATER AND PLOS CLIMATE
We’re excited to announce a cross-journal Call for Papers on Prediction and Mitigation of Natural Hazards research. Submission deadline, October 14, 2023.
As the climate emergency intensifies, natural hazards are becoming a feature of daily life for more and more people across the globe. Simply picking up the pieces after a natural disaster is not enough: vulnerable communities and populations need systems, tools and policies to predict natural hazards and mitigate their risks. Developing these solutions requires careful integration of diverse forms of data, from simulations and experimental measurements to surveys and qualitative studies, as well as expertise, perspectives and lessons learned from different intellectual disciplines.
PLOS ONE, PLOS Water and PLOS Climate have announced this cross-journal Call for Papers to help break down barriers between traditional academic disciplines and to build a collection of research that will play a part in mitigating the hazards of the future.
With their commitment to open, ethical and reproducible research, these three PLOS journals are ideal venues for interdisciplinary research on this topic. PLOS ONE is an interdisciplinary journal that has previously published research in this field. PLOS Water and PLOS Climate have recently published their first articles but provided dedicated journal and editorial support to this topic.
