Expanding our academic book Series - Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is very pleased to announce the expansion of our book Series portfolio in 2015. Whilst our well-respected Series titles have always been an integral part of our publishing programme, we recognise that there is a growing demand amongst our author community to expand our current portfolio, and publish leading-edge, peer-reviewed research that supports all scholars, from early career researchers to eminent senior academics, as well as practitioners.

To showcase the best collections of academic research and writing, we have established a specialist Series team at Cambridge Scholars Publishing, and have created a dedicated Series section on our website, designed to make specialist research more readily accessible.

A cornerstone of our Series programme is leveraging the expertise and networks of our Editorial Advisory Board, many of whom are experienced Series Editors themselves, and who ensure that our portfolio continues to have relevancy and impact.

Professor Emeritus David Weir explains this further:

“As Chair of the Editorial Advisory Board, I am delighted that Cambridge Scholars are committed to creating strong Series of scholarly books for the academic community. The value of a good Series is far more than the sum of the individual titles as a prime vehicle for disseminating authentic peer-reviewed knowledge to both scholars and policy makers. When I was starting out my academic career, one looked for Series that authenticated the discipline and offered reassurance on content and credibility. Now, I am working with the Board to support the delivery of this commitment in developing and promoting Series both within and across disciplines, by engaging the brightest minds to contribute to a wide range of edited volumes.”

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is proud to have published the work of many noteworthy academics in recent years. Rebuilding Sustainable Communities after Disasters is one of our more established Series, and continues to attract wide critical acclaim, appealing to scholars, public policy makers, Non-Governmental Organisations, for-profit and not-for-profit entities, and educators in creating awareness and understanding. Edited by Professor Adenrele Awotona, the volumes are based on research from the Center for Rebuilding Sustainable Communities after Disasters (CRSCAD) at the University of Massachusetts Boston, USA – a unique research unit dedicated to raising awareness and possessing the expertise necessary for long-term sustainable reconstruction after disasters, with a focus on vulnerable populations. 

This Series addresses and explores the issue of sustainability, with a broad multidisciplinary focus, encouraging global collaboration and providing a forum for communicating across different networks.

The importance of this is highlighted by our eminent Board member, Professor Mark Lemon:

“The term disaster is often linked to an event that has significant negative impacts on social, economic and/or ecological systems. Such an interpretation can fail to take into account that these systems are invariably interconnected, and that many disasters have a temporal and spatial story that extends far beyond the location experiencing the most disruptive and costly of these impacts. This Series of books presents a fascinating range of cases that draw upon this whole system and multidisciplinary interpretation in order to document the different paths followed by communities affected by disaster in their pursuit of more sustainable futures.”
