International Journal
SCIENCE OF TSUNAMI HAZARDS

Welcome to the Web Site of TSUNAMI SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL and its electronic, international journal "SCIENCE OF TSUNAMI HAZARDS" (STH) - published to disseminate the results of applied and theoretical research on tsunamis and to increase knowledge about their hazards. The links below and on the left provide information about the Tsunami Society, on past and future activities and symposiums, on membership, and directions for the submission of relevant scientific papers pertaining to tsunami hazards for publication in our journal. "Science of Tsunami Hazards" is a unique, peer-reviewed journal which has been published continuously without interruption since 1982, initially in print but subsequently in both electronic and printed formats.

Also, SCIENCE OF TSUNAMI HAZARDS has been accepted for inclusion in the prestigious international academic journal database DOAJ maintained by the University of Lund in Sweden with the support of the European Union. All papers published in the last 10 years were submitted, along with their bibliographic data, keywords and abstracts, to DOAJ*. The database is being currently updated with similar search criteraia for the 1982-1999 period. See listing of our journals at the *Directory of Open Access Journals

Additionally, SPARC Europe and DOAJ have entered an agreement about introducing a certification scheme for Open Access journals, the SPARC Europe Seal for Open Access Journals. - for which SCIENCE OF TSUNAMI HAZARDS is now eligible.

All past and curent issues of the journal, in electronic format, are archived as a mirror sites at the Los Alamos National Laboratory's electronic database, ( http://library.lanl.gov/tsunami/ )at the U.S Library of Congress, as well as at the present website. Additioanlly, all current and past STH papers, along with the article-specific search criteria for each paper, are presently being archived at THE NATIONAL LIBRARY, The HAGUE, NETHERLANDS http://www.kb.nl/e-Depot

 

Recently, EBSCO Publishing invited the Society to include "Science of Tsunami Hazards" in their extensive online database. The collaboration - endorsed by contract - has given the journal additional global exposure and readership in the databases of 90% of the academic institutions worldwide, including nation-wide access to databases in more than 70 countries.
