Launch of PLoS Currents: Disasters
Date:3/28/2012

Despite the breadth of technological possibilities available, publishers and scientific journals have not provided adequate solutions for publication during fast moving emergencies. The UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction has identified that "the sharing of research findings, lessons learned and best practices" are a priority in its Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015.

To help fill this gap, PLoS announces the launch of PLoS Currents: Disasters (http://currents.plos.org/disasters/), a new, innovative open-access publication for the rapid communication of new research results and operational analyses derived from the study or management of all types of disasters.

PLoS Currents is a flexible publishing channel, which responds to the particular needs of the community of disasters-related researchers and practitioners. In addition to the decreased publishing time through a streamlined review and production process, it has article formats which reflect the diverse types of disasters-related research and in addition supports the use of revisions of articles.

The most recent article, from 16 international experts in the fields of research, education, ethics and operational aspects of disaster medical management, highlights a critical issue in disaster management and describes a template for uniform data reporting of acute medical response in disasters.

PLoS Currents: Disasters is supported by an international group of more than 30 researchers and practitioners, who serve on its editorial and review board.

Professor Virginia Murray, an Editor for PLoS Currents: Disasters, and the Head of Extreme Events and Health Protection at the Health Protection Agency, said "evidence based advice is essential for providing relevant up-to-date evidence based information to support the development of planning for extreme events PLoS Current
