Disasters

Journal of Disaster Studies, Policy and Management

Can YOU afford NOT to subscribe? Special offer to Field Exchange readers: £30.00 for four quarterly issues in 1999, plus the last issue of 1998 FREE

For 22 years Disasters has reported on all aspects of emergencies, policy and management. Disasters provides a major forum for debate between nutrition practitioners, policy makers and academics on high quality research and practice related to nutrition and food security in natural disasters and complex political emergencies. Disasters also reports on broader aspects of international relief policy and practice, such as the links between relief and development, humanitarian principles, evaluation of relief and the role of the military in the delivery of relief supplies. The journal promotes the interchange of ideas and experience and maintains a balance between field reports from relief workers, case studies, articles of general interest and academic papers.

Disasters is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal. Every paper has been reviewed by two independent external reviewers as well as by the Editorial team. We welcome contributions from nutrition and health professionals, as well as policy makers and academics, on all issues related to nutrition and health in natural disasters and complex political emergencies. Please contact the editors if you would like to discuss a potential idea or paper.
