Türkiye and Syria Earthquakes

The Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness Journal (DMPHP) and the WHO EMT Initiative are seeking manuscripts that analyze and document the results of response efforts on the population health of the affected communities and those that responded. Data-driven public health and clinical outcomes in terms of morbidity, mortality and socio-economic well-being are of particular interest. Specifically, the utilization of technological and innovative solutions and their impact on local health care delivery systems including operation modalities, challenges, and best practices are of interest.

Submissions are currently being considered and will be triaged before assignment to one of the Guest Editors who will conduct a full peer review. Manuscripts, when accepted, will be published online as ready and will be assigned to an online collection.

Intending authors are strongly advised to carefully read the Instructions for Authors and Preparing your Materials prior to submitting to https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/dmp.

Authors should select Earthquake: Türkiye/Syria in the Author Center when uploading their materials in Manuscript Central.
