Date:5/2/2008

Oxford, United Kingdom May 2, 2008 Wiley-Blackwell, the scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. today announced the launch of Journal of Flood Risk Management. Published in partnership with the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), the journal provides an international forum for exploring the interactions between the diverse fields that comprise the management of flood risk worldwide. The first issue will publish in May 2008.

At a time when the frequency and severity of flooding are of increasing global concern, it is more important than ever to have access to leading research that can help mitigate its devastating effects, said Mike Davis, PhD, Managing Director and Vice President, Life Sciences, Wiley-Blackwell Journal of Flood Risk Management will benefit all practitioners across the broad range of disciplines where flood-related research is conducted.

Each quarterly issue of Journal of Flood Risk Management will contain peer-reviewed original papers, review articles, and editorials covering such areas as hydrology, coastal, storm and surge, climate change, modeling, infrastructure management, flood event management and disaster recovery, flood forecasting/warning, land use management/spatial planning, policy and legislation, uncertainty analysis and risk and health and social aspects of flooding.

The Editor-in-Chief, David Balmforth, is the Technical Director of MWH, a global leader in water and environmental engineering, and is one of Europe's leading experts in flooding and wastewater management. All articles will be free of charge for the first year of publication.

"The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management is delighted to expand its collaboration with Wiley-Blackwell, which is currently publishing Water and Environment Journal. Given the potential impacts of climate change, flooding poses one of the biggest challenges to humanity for its future well being. Journal of Flood Risk Management will share solutions which could improve our resilience to flooding in the future, says Nick Reeves, Executive Director, CIWEM.
