Journal of Fire Protection Engineering and Fire Technology to Merge

Two of the world's leading peer-reviewed applied fire safety journals, the Journal of Fire Protection Engineering and Fire Technology, will merge effective January 1, 2014. The merged journal, of which five members of the BRE Centre for Fire Safety Engineering are Editorial Board Members or Associate Editors, will carry the name Fire Technology, and the publication frequency will increase from quarterly to bimonthly. Online access to Fire Technology will be provided free-ofcharge to members of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE), a new student chapter of which has recently launched at Edinburgh.

Fire Technology spans a range of fire safety science and engineering problems in industrial, operational, cultural, and environmental applications. Topics include materials testing, fire modeling, detection and suppression, performance standards, human behavior, and fire risk analysis. Coverage extends to fire safety science, fire protection engineering, fire research, fire risk analysis, fire investigation, municipal fire protection, wildland fires, loss statistics, and related subjects.

We look forward to the significant increase in quantity and quality of fire safety engineering publications that this merger promises to deliver!
