Peer-review website changes


We have rolled out a new peer-review system for Journal of Emergency Management.

That new peer-review system is located at:

NEW MANUSCRIPTS submitted after 1/1/2020

All new manuscripts should be submitted via the link above. Please note that we transferred all user details from our old system but this would be a great time to verify your user details including email address, mailing address, ORCHID, etc.  Addtionally, please update your "Classifications" in your system account. In the past, these were called KEYWORDS and were used to denote your expertise and/or specialities in practice.

EXISTING MANUSCRIPTS - Submitted before 12/31/2019

If you have submitted a manuscript before 12/31/2019, please use the links in your emails from that system to access the old peer-review system. That system will stay active until all manuscripts have processed through the peer-review process.

The direct link to that system is if you need to access your manuscript submitted before 12/31.2019.

If you have any questions, please contact our offices at 781-899-2702 or reach out to our editorial offices via email at jom ( at )
