Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue seeks to highlight data collected and models developed as part of large integrated socio-environmental fire science projects. Many such projects have been funded by national science agencies and often seek to integrate social, biophysical, and natural sciences. Projects can include those that focus on fire hydrological processes, land-atmosphere interactions, scientific visualizations, individual and community social science problems, climatology and weather, among many other topics. Many of these projects also include interactions with the public and a wide array of stakeholders. These projects usually involve multiple institutions and multiple scientific disciplines.

Datasets can include, but are not limited to, field data, laboratory data, model simulations, scientific visualization descriptions and virtual asset development, social science datasets, remote sensing datasets, educational datasets, etc.

The scope of this Special Issue includes articles, data descriptors (data papers), technical notes data syntheses, model development, and model applications associated with any integrated socio-environmental fire science projects. Data descriptors should include links to supplemental tables and figures containing the data being described. Perspectives providing a brief description of project goals, outcomes, and further work are encouraged. Synthesis and review papers that provide an overview of field campaigns and integrated projects are also welcome.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Fire is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
