Testimonial

Presenting the First JDR Award

Founded in August 2006, the Journal of Disaster Research (JDR) reached Vol.10 this year. Regular issues are published bimonthly, six times a year. Special editions on the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake are published once a year, with four of the five issues planned having been published.

The JDR’s features lie in its broad spectrum of subjects and the comprehensiveness of their treatment. These points are extremely important in dealing with disasters, but may lose focus in the selection of article content and have difficulty in evaluating it.

From its inception, the JDR has made each issue special, focusing on certain topics and inviting specialists in the area to serve as (guest) editors of each issue. Thanks to the cooperation of such specialists, the JDR has developed being able to reach Vol.10 this year.
To mark this anniversary, the JDR has established the JDR Award, an idea originally proposed by one of our editors, Shinji Egashira.
We feel that having a broad spectrum of subjects is fitting as the selection criterion for the JDR Award, but this has made it difficult to set up objective selection criteria.

A major factor in selection has been the number of downloads. Both of the two-part articles on the special issue on “Enhancement of Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster Mitigation in Peru” in Vol.8 No.2 and Vol.9 No.6 ranked among the top ten downloads in the almost 60 JDR issues published thus far.

Each issue derives its significance from the relevance of the featured topic, so members of the editorial committee have unanimously agreed to present this first JDR Award to the guest editors of the special issue:

Fumio Yamazaki,
Professor, Graduate School of Engineering, Chiba University, Japan

Carlos Zavala,
Professor, CISMID, Faculty of Civil Engineering,
National University of Engineering (UNI), Peru

On behalf of the JDR editorial committee, I wish to thank them for their efforts and to congratulate them as the first winners of the Award.

Professor Emeritus, Tokyo Institute of Technology

Message from the Winners

We are most honored to have been selected as winners of the First JDR Award – an unexpected surprise because we did not realize that we had contributed so much to the Journal of Disaster Research (JDR). The JDR provided us with a fine opportunity to present our results on a project of the Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS), making our work known to the world-wide scientific community. SATREPS is sponsored by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

From 2010 to 2015, Japanese and Peruvian researchers conducted a SATREPS project, Enhancement of Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster Mitigation Technology in Peru. To announce our research output, we chose the JDR and had our work published in 36 articles in two special issues, in 2013 and 2014. The JDR’s prompt peer reviews and publication processes are really helpful to projects such as SATREPS, which have time limits. Our results would otherwise have been published much later.

Congratulations on the JDR’s first-decade anniversary! We believe the JDR is an important journal in the natural hazard and disaster management field as it has been recognized as a Scopus indexed journal. The JDR’s open access and the fact that it enables papers to be downloaded free of charge from the web site is very helpful and convenient to readers and helps authors become known to broader audiences. We hope the JDR will get the Impact Factor of Thomson Reuters, becoming a major source of information in the disaster sciences field.

A word from the Editor-in-Chief to the awardees

To all our prize winners:

Congratulations on having won the JRM Best Paper Award for 2008. We are especially happy this year, as it marks JRM’s 20th anniversary. I am convinced that our being able to award such excellent work as we celebrate this auspicious occasion signifies both a turning point and giant step ahead for JRM. The prize-winning work was selected from among Volume 19 published in 2007.
This volume was composed of 88 high-quality research papers, but from among the many excellent candidates one work was chosen not only for its innovation and usefulness, but for its truly unique quality. Perhaps it can be called a fitting work to crown JRM’s 20th Anniversary.

This year’s prize selection was done through the participation of all Japanese members of the editorial board. Our Editor-in-Chief and the guest editors of the special issues selected one or two candidates from each number of Volume 19. These works were then further narrowed down to seven through a careful selection and evaluation process. From among these seven, the February 2009 meeting of the Editorial Board finally came to an agreement on the work most deserving of the grand prize.

It is my sincere hope that all the prize winners continue to develop in the future, and that JRM continues to make great strides with you. Lastly, to the members of Fuji Technology Press, Robotics and Mechatronics Division of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, and to the entire editorial staff, I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation.

Tatsuo Arai, Prof.
Editor in Chief
