The Journal of Catastrophe Risk and Resilience (JCRR), a new not-for-profit publication, has been launched to provide a new outlet for risk and resilience research.
JCRR is supported by a number of organizations from across academia and the private sector, with founding member organizations including:
- AXA XL
- Lighthill Risk Network representing Lloyd’s, Hiscox, Guy Carpenter, Aon, Liberty Mutual Syndicate, Hiscox
- MS Amlin
- Flood Re
- Renaissance Re
- JBA Risk Management
The Journal of Catastrophe Risk and Resilience will publish original research, reviews, and commentary from scientists, researchers, practitioners, and decision makers across academia and the private sector on a variety of topics including: the monitoring and modelling of hazards, exposure and vulnerability; catastrophe risk management; and mitigation and adaptation strategy design by governments, NGOs, and businesses.
The Journal aims to:
- Provide a forum for experts in both academia and industry to publish the methods and results of their research
- Remove some of the barriers to publication erected by traditional academic journals
- Foster a spirit of collaboration and methodological openness amongst industrial practitioners
- Make relevant academics visible to an industry which can consume and utilise their research
- Generate impact through the definition and maintenance of best practice
- Command a dedicated readership amongst catastrophe researchers, model vendors, and academic geoscientists
- Cultivate new avenues of interdisciplinary collaboration in academia to strengthen the link-fundamental to catastrophe risk research – between physics-and economics-adjacent fields.
