The Opportunities and Challenges of Disaster Recovery
The Journal of Public Management & Social Policy (JPMSP) seeks manuscripts on research from several disciplines for a symposium on The Opportunities and Challenges of Disaster Recovery. The symposium seeks manuscripts that address the economic, social, political and administrative issues that arise during recovery from natural disasters, with particular attention to the various unintended consequences (both good and bad) and missed opportunities that become apparent during recovery. The symposium seeks manuscripts that cover a wide variety of natural and ecological disasters in a variety of geographic locations. Scholarly essays using a wide-variety of methods (statistical, textual, content, historical, case studies) and from various disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives are encouraged.
Papers should be received by May 24, 2013 in order to be considered. Papers received after this date may be considered depending on the quality of existing submissions. Proposals to write manuscripts are encouraged but not required, and must consist of 500 words or less, a title and description of approach, as well as linkage to the topic of the special issue. Proposals must be submitted by March 8, 2013. The symposium editors will respond to all proposals no later than April 5, 2013. Papers will be refereed by anonymous reviewers and meet established standards of scholarly excellence.
