Contribute an article by Mar. 20 for IAEM Bulletin special focus issue on pandemics

from IAEM

The IAEM Editorial Committee seeks article submissions on "Black Swan Event: Pandemics" for the April 2020 issue of the IAEM Bulletin. The deadline for article submissions is Mar. 20, 2020. As emergency managers, we learn from what has happened in the past to help us plan for the future. When it comes to a pandemic, we can look at what we have learned in order to be prepared. Articles could look at past incidents that offer lessons in how to best prepare, such as H1N1, SARS, MERS, or Spanish flu. Are travel bans effective in slowing the spread of a pandemic in our global environment? What lessons did we learn from previous infectious disease outbreaks that should/could be applied today? What do we advise citizens who want to be prepared? How do we prepare? How do we respond without destroying our economy and our social structure? Consider the improvements you have experienced and witnessed, as well as the failures. There is no more logical time to think about this kind of event, since the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread. Article length is 750-1,500 words, and author guidelines are online. A full list of 2020 special focus issue topics is posted here. Direct questions to Bulletin Editor Karen Thompson. more
