EDITORIAL POLICY FOR PUBLICATION IN SCIENCE OF TSUNAMI HAZARDS
The SCIENCE OF TSUNAMI HAZARDS will consider for publications papers from a wide range of scientific disciplines, encompassing the most basic research to the most innovative technologies. Data reports on tsunami effects, on tsunami runup or other observations on manifestations of the tsunami phenomenon, may be included in the journal together with theoretical or applied research papers. For example, a paper may be included which describes tsunami impacts on agricultural coastal land and strategies for soil restoration in the same issue as papers addressing remote sensing applications to surveying tsunami effects, or papers dealing with seismotectonics of tsunami source mechanisms or mathematical modeling studies of tsunami propagation and energy flux. The content of the Journal is multidisciplinary.
The idea is that the more valid research is published on all aspects of the tsunami hazards, the better, as such inclusion into one single journal, contributes to an online database on which future research can be expanded. Furthermore, scientific debate is encouraged, as this too can lead to new research and discoveries. Opinions and ideas based on scientific observations are welcome for possible publication in the journal in the form of editorials or commentaries. In brief, The Tsunami Society strives for objectivity, significance and scientific quality and balance in publishing SCIENCE OF TSUNAMI HAZARDS.
