The Risks and Catastrophes series, inaugurated in 2015, “aims to create an open space to host quality research in the field of the scynin science.

And contrary to what a title that might elect the experience of disaster or the prevention of its threat as suggested by this area, may this new series be crowned with security, stability and editorial and scientific success?”.
