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 domestic security and emergency management. JHSEM encourages and adopts both a global perspective and international approach to its submissions and content. JHSEM seeks submissions on a wide array of issues from countering violent extremism to cybersecurity, to terrorism and counterterrorism, intelligence, emergency management includes topics such as disaster management, preparedness and response, resilience, climate or environmental security, public health, and strategy. Further, JHSEM accepts submissions that focus on policy or strategy as well as the scholarship of teaching and learning.
A critical part of JHSEM’s focus and intention is to enrich the perspectives of researchers, educators, policy makers and practitioners so that they are better able to address the increasingly complex and wicked security and resilience issues before them. Toward this end, JHSEM publishes not only peer-reviewed original submissions, but also opinion, news/communiqués, and book or other media reviews. Its electronic format allows us to leverage communication technologies 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 and practical applications regarding the evolving nature of the many disciplines comprising both domestic/homeland security and disaster/resilience/emergency management as described above. Recognizing the inherent ties between these disciplines, the journal aims to serve as a bridge between them, encouraging exploration of their underlying relationships and synergies including practical applications, teaching, policy, or strategy applications, theory or interactions.
JHSEM’s mission is further propelled by the conviction that in fields that share such significant operational elements, insights from the community of scholars, educators, policy makers and practitioners are essential.
Accordingly, JHSEM also aims to serve as a bridge between the researcher, educator, policy maker 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 from the intersection of these perspectives and the interchange of ideas and scholarly solutions that the most compelling knowledge, novel insights, and best practices can emerge.
Among JHSEM’s key aims are to
