CORONAVIRUS Call for Papers

Call for Papers

Timely, peer-reviewed articles on the Coronavirus outbreak from Journal of Disaster Medicine & Public Health Preparedness (DMPHP) an official publication of the SOCIETY FOR DISASTER MEDICINE AND PUBLIC HEALTH, Inc (SDMPH)

The Society for Disaster Medicine and Public Health, Inc. is committed to the examination and study of individual disasters and public health crises across the disaster cycle from response, through recovery and future preparation and preventive efforts.

The emergence of a novel Corona virus in Wuhan, China (2019-nCoV) and its subsequent worldwide spread have prompted a WHO-declared Public Health Emergency of International Concern, prompting a great deal of global fear and uncertainty as well as a torrent of advisories, news articles, and social media speculation. The journal will serve as an educated and authoritative voice on all aspects of the virus to include clinical and epidemiological characteristics, risk and threat levels, potential spread, control measures, vaccine development and risk communication.


The Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness Journal began covering events in their entirety via special issues dating back to 2014.  In doing so, the journal publishes in real time over the full life-cycle of an event or crisis - from beginning to end. Due to the many uncertainties surrounding a novel agent outbreak, coverage may well extend beyond one special issue.

Global experts from all professions and disciplines involved in the response to this event are invited to supply content for this special and timely issue. Submitted material will be expeditiously reviewed and quickly E-published after acceptance in order to help inform ongoing efforts. Please submit manuscripts to
