The 2023 Disaster Research Journals (DRJ) list builds on the Disaster Research Journals Database (DRJD), which encompasses a curated list of journals dedicated to disaster research and science. The primary objective is to serve as a reliable resource for scholars, practitioners, and students navigating the vast and evolving landscape of disaster research literature. While the DRJ list and database can also assist researchers, professionals, and policymakers in identifying relevant publication outlets and consolidated sources of information in the field, they can be tools to track evolving trends and observe the development of the field, which has drastically expanded in the last decades. By August 2023, the DRJD contains 39 dimensions (or data points) for 111 journals. These data points range from basics such as ‘name’, ‘International Standard Serial Number (ISSN)’, ‘Uniform Resource Locator (URL)’, ‘publisher’, ‘country’, and ‘language’, to more specific details such as ‘short description’, ‘classification’, ‘COPE ethics guidelines’ signatory, ‘Open Access policy’, ‘Author Processing Charges (APC)’, ‘Copyrights’, ‘Turnaround times’, and ‘Periodicity’ (i.e., issues per year). Additionally, the database includes journal metrics like ‘Journal Impact Factor’, ‘CiteScore’, and ‘Google Scholar Metrics’.
