The Future of the OREs

  • Led by Susan L. Cutter and an editorial board of internationally acclaimed experts, the ORE of Natural Hazard Science features the most distinguished figures in natural hazard science study committed to maintaining the highest standards in academic publishing.
  • Hundreds of authoritative overview articles on a range of key topics in Natural Hazard Science form a foundation of established ideas within the discipline and are freely accessible for months as they are commissioned
  • Each article features in-line citations, seamlessly leading users to the publication details of a referenced work. Links to other resources and related articles carry the user on a seamless journey through relevant content. The traditional print reference model offers static content, without evolving as research and discoveries develop. Oxford is looking to reinvent that model with continuously updated content, infused with the insight of today's top experts.
  • We are working continuously to expand the ORE of Natural Hazard Science through 2015. Visit the About page to read about the progress and plans you can expect to see in the future, as summaries and full text articles are released.
