About the Journal
Created in 2004, the Journal of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (JHSEM) is an online journal that publishes original, innovative, and timely articles describing and assessing research and practice in the fields of homeland security and emergency management. JHSEM publishes not only peer-reviewed articles but also opinion, news/communiqués, and book/media reviews. Its electronic format allows us to leverage communication technologies in order to accumulate and disseminate the latest knowledge on a broad range of related topics in a timely and inexpensive manner.
JHSEM promotes a comprehensive and dynamic perspective, providing readers with up-to-date information regarding the evolving nature of the homeland security and emergency management fields. Recognizing the inherent links between these two fields, the journal aims to serve as a bridge between them, encouraging exploration of their underlying relationships, interactions, and synergies.
JHSEM’s mission is propelled by the conviction that in fields that share significant operational elements, such as homeland security and emergency management, both researchers’ and practitioners’ insights are needed for success; in isolation, their perspectives can offer only partial views of the reality. Accordingly, JHSEM also aims to serve as a bridge between the researcher and practitioner communities, facilitating the kind of collaboration and coordination that enables them to appreciate and benefit from the associated implications and inherent connections in their fields. It is only from the intersection of these two perspectives and the interchange of ideas that the most compelling knowledge, novel insights, and best practices can emerge.
A critical part of JHSEM’s mission is to enrich the perspectives of researchers and practitioners in the homeland security and emergency management fields so that they are better able to address the increasingly complex issues before them. To this end, JHSEM encourages an interdisciplinary approach that reflects the expanding boundaries of these two disciplines by including such content as public health, cyber security, and environmental policy.
Among JHSEM’s key objectives are to
• Meet the need for peer-reviewed, high-quality, wide-ranging professional articles in the fields of homeland security and emergency management
• Augment the work of the existing professional societies and single-discipline publications in these fields
• Follow developments in the two fields and offer new information and analysis as they become available
• Serve the needs of both the academic and practitioner communities by providing a high-quality platform for information sharing, collaboration, and exchange of ideas in an efficient and economical way.
