Past Research Digest Issues:

Research Digest is a quarterly online publication that compiles recent research into an easily accessible format for the hazards and disasters community. It provides complete references and abstracts (when available) for current research in the field. The issues are compiled and edited by library and research staff and include more than 35 peer reviewed publications.

Research Digest articles are categorized into 24 different topic areas, though not every topic may appear in each issue. Abstracts are lightly edited to match Natural Hazards Center style. Most articles are cataloged as part of the Natural Hazards Center’s library holdings. Check with your local institution for article availability. The Natural Hazards Center Library (subject to copyright laws and conventions) will copy otherwise difficult to obtain material for the cost of reproduction and shipping.
