OXFORD, England, October 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and solutions announces the launch of a new open access
journal, Case Studies in Fire Safety .

Case Studies in Fire Safety provides an exciting new publication outlet for
facility designers, fire safety engineers and researchers to share case
studies and short communications about practical problems in fire science,
design and engineering.

Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Peter Johnson, Fellow at global design firm
Arup, said of the launch, "Our built environment is changing with global
urbanization and the increased production of taller buildings. We face major
new challenges of climate change and forest fires, and internationally we have
had some particularly damaging industrial fires. Alongside high quality
theory-based research, insights into and sharing of practical design solutions
is needed to address many of these problems. Case Studies in Fire Safety
provides an open forum for sharing of such insights and solutions. It will
offer a valuable resource for practitioners and researchers working in all
fields of fire safety."

"We're delighted to announce the launch of this new journal. The publication
format is designed to suit the needs of both the academic community and
practitioners working in fire science and fire safety engineering fields,"
said Joe d'Angelo, Publisher for Civil Engineering journals at Elsevier.

experience and new ideas relating to fire safety, helping to avoid preventable
and sometimes catastrophic oversights."
