The IAEM Bulletin is published monthly by the International Association of Emergency Managers to keep members abreast of association news, government actions affecting emergency management, research and trends in the EM field. The Bulletin — in its 38th year of continuous publication — is also intended to serve as a way for emergency management colleagues to exchange information on programs and ideas. Issues range from 24-40 pages in the IAEM Bulletin, which became an electronic publication beginning with the June 2014 issue.
The IAEM Bulletin is distributed to the more than 6,000 members of IAEM, representing all levels of government, industrial, commercial, educational, military, private, non-profit and volunteer organizations in the U.S. and around the world. The newsletter also is sent to allied organizations and legislative representatives with a role in emergency management issues.
The primary focus of the IAEM Bulletin is local. We are looking for articles that provide information and insights useful to other practitioners, in government and private sectors, who are educated and trained professionals. Appropriate topics include: new research results, unique applications, successful programs, real experiences with disasters and/or exercises, reviews of new publications, and viewpoints on important issues facing emergency management.
For each issue, the copy deadline is the 15th of the month before the month of publication. For example, the deadline for the February IAEM Bulletin is Jan. 15.
Feature articles should be 750-1,500 words in length.
E-mail articles to IAEM Bulletin Editor John Osborne at John@iaem.com. Proposals for articles or a series of articles are welcome.
The editor has discretion to edit articles, but if changes are considered substantive, authors will be able to review the changes before publication. The IAEM-Global Editorial Work Group reviews each issue of the IAEM Bulletin.
