The Australian Journal of Emergency Management (AJEM) is Australia’s premier journal for emergency management covering all hazards and all emergencies. 

From research to practice, global government to community engagement, AJEM focuses on promoting and facilitating discussion and debate at all levels of emergency management. The Journal’s papers feature extensive analysis, considered views, lessons learned and insights into current and future issues from researchers and practitioners.

As an academic publication, AJEM is highly regarded in its field within the national and international community for strong scholarly research underpinned by evidence. The Journal follows a double-blind refereeing process for research articles undergoing peer review.

AJEM welcomes submissions from all areas of emergency management theory and practice, with a focus on risk reduction, readiness, response, and recovery, for its quarterly publication.
