Indexed in DOAJ

Journal of Disaster Research (JDR) has been indexed in DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals).
DOAJ is a database of Open Access journals operated by Infrastructure Services for Open Access(IS4OA), UK. It includes high-quality, peer-reviewed journals which satisfy the strict criteria. In recent years where predatory journals become a social problem, DOAJ is known as “white list” of non-predatory journals and it guarantees the journal’s reliability. It is also expected to increase JDR’s international recognition and accessibility.
We would like to express our gratitude to all concerned, and will make efforts to further improve the journal value.

[Congratulation!] JDR is indexed in Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)

We are glad to announce that the Journal of Disaster Research (JDR) is now indexed in Clarivate Analytics’ Emerging Souces Citation Index (ESCI). ESCI is a new index provided by Clarivate Analytics (former Thomson Reuters IP & Science) from November 2015. ESCI has extended the universe of publications in Web of Science to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. Papers published in JDR are now searchable in Web of Science. JDR can continue to be considered for inclusion in SCIE. By inclusion of JDR to ESCI, we hope the papers published on JDR will attract much attention from researchers all over the world and contribute to promote the development of research. JDR will make continuous efforts to be indexed in SCI.
