Emergency Management Review (EMR) is the peer-reviewed journal of the Emergency Planning Society that is published by the Emergency Planning College and forms the hub of their developing Knowledge Centre.
EMR is about sharing knowledge between practitioners and academics and we hope that as it develops and becomes an established source of well-written, rigorous articles it can add to, and help grow, a body of knowledge within the UK and Ireland.
It is your journal and it is up to you to make it work by submitting accounts of your field research, your case studies and your good practice. All submissions will be double blind peer reviewed to ensure they are relevant, rigorous and accurate and should make a clear contribution to theory and/or practice of emergency management, civil protection and resilience.
Anyone wishing to submit articles for peer review and inclusion in EMR should contact the Editor, Eve Coles via e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org or in Ireland the Deputy Editor, Caroline McMullan via email@example.com

Part Two of the peer-reviewed academic journal of the Emergency Planning Society - Emergency Management Review - is due out in the Autumn!
The Emergency Management Review (EMR) is the peer-reviewed academic journal of the Emergency Planning Society, published by the Emergency Planning College.
The journal, with EPS member Eve Coles as Editor, is now to be co-funded by the EPC and the Civil Contingencies Secretariat.
Please watch out for Issue 2 in the Autumn, and for a special issue on research into emergencies and disasters from Ireland. The intention, from now on, is to publish at least twice per year.
The journal will remain free and downloadable from the EPC Knowledge Centre.
The journal provides a very important opportunity to showcase new research from around the world and to bridge what is often seen as a gap between the concerns of practitioners and academics.
Academic research should be driven by, and answer, practitioners’ questions, widen their knowledge and develop their understanding of the context of emergency management. The academic and the practical are not “two cultures”; they are complementary and should be inextricably linked.
The increasing professionalisation of emergency management in recent years also confirms that many practitioners want and need access to new research on a regular basis.
The EMR will reinforce that message, and we hope you find it interesting and useful.
You may also choose to contribute, Eve will put out calls for papers from time to time but in the meantime a Call for Papers and Instructions for Authors are available on EMR's webpage, please click here
