About the book

The contents of the book will be written by multiple authors and edited by an expert in the field. Authors are not limited in terms of topic but encouraged to present a chapter proposal that best suits their current research efforts. We accept scientific papers that can be presented as original research papers and review papers. The required length of the full chapters is 10-20 pages and the chapters should be original works (not republished). As a self-contained collection of scholarly papers, the book will target an audience of practicing researchers, academics, Ph.D. students and other scientists. Since it will be published as an Open Access publication, it will allow unrestricted online access to chapters with no reading or subscription fees.

This book project aims to explain the earth processes that understandably drive hazardous events, illustrate how these processes interact with our civilization and describe how we can better adjust to their effects. The book aims to display the greatly expanding amount of information regarding natural hazards, disasters, and catastrophes.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
