CALL FOR AUTHORS [Springer Book on Emergency Response]
12 June 2018 11:26

This Springer volume focuses on the key functions to be performed in the emergency response to a disaster, how these functions are coordinated, and the typical challenges and issues that emerge. Cases in the volume will address both hazard- and response-generated needs. The needs generated by emergent threats (e.g., Ebola crisis), emergent technologies (e.g., social media), and emergent groups (e.g., social innovation teams) that set the stage for innovation and adaption will be explored in this volume. There is a Call for authors to prepare a chapter, about 8000-1000 words, due in July.

For more information please contact:
Dr. Steven Jensen (stevenjohnjensen@gmail.com ) and
Dr. David Johnston (david.johnston@gns.cri.nz).
