Call for papers on "Vulnerability and resilience to natural hazards and disasters in mountains"
MRD is seeking well-validated insights into disaster risk reduction and recovery approaches in mountains, as well as novel findings on processes of natural hazards and disasters from a social-ecological perspective and on mountain communities' and environments' resilience and vulnerabilities. We also welcome research and policy agendas based on comprehensive reviews of research and development work in the context of natural hazards and disasters in mountains. Full papers were due by 15 September 2014. For more information, please download the full call for papers.

fosters sustainable development in mountains by supporting peer-reviewed interdisciplinary, disciplinary, and transdisciplinary research on mountains, developing scientific capacity, capitalizing on development experiences, promoting policy dialogue, and strengthening networks within the mountain community.

MRD receives significant funding from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE), the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), and the Austrian Development Agency (ADA)—the operational unit of the Austrian Development Cooperation. Institutional members of the IMS make a substantial financial contribution. Friends of MRD also support the journal.

Mountain Research and Development is available online and open access in collaboration with www.bioone.org, and is indexed in the Science Citation Index, Journal Citation Reports® (Impact Factor for 2013: 0.989), Current Contents/Agriculture, Biology and Environmental Sciences, Geo Abstracts, C.A.B.
