Call for papers: Special Fire Technology issue on Wildland Fires

Fire Technology, the journal of the National Fire Protection Association published by Springer, is preparing an issue on wildland fires.

The purpose is to help bridge the gap between the fire safety and forest fire communities. Multidisciplinary contributions and international perspectives are encouraged. Topics include technology, research and case studies in fire behaviour, laboratory and field experiments, fire modelling, fire fighting, detection and suppression, human behaviour, risk and related subjects.

Submissions accepted until 20th Jan 2010 here. Choose article type “wildland fire”. Fire Technology is a peer review (double blind) journal. At least two reviewers, maybe three, will evaluate the paper before a publication decision is taken. Immediately after acceptance, papers are available online in "Online First". Later on, when all papers on the special issue have been accepted/published, a hard copy of the issue is printed and distributed.
