The journal Land (ISSN 2073-445X, SSCI) is currently running a Special
Issue entitled "Landslide Hazard and Environment Risk Assessment".
Prof. Enrico Miccadei, Dr. Cristiano Carabella, and Dr. Giorgio Paglia
(Università degli Studi "G. d’Annunzio" of Chieti-Pescara)are serving
as Guest Editors for this issue. We think you could make an excellent
contribution based on your expertise.
Landslides are global geomorphological phenomena occurring in all
geographic regions in response to a wide range of triggering factors.
Landsliding is linked to the combination of geological,
geomorphological, and climatic factors in response to trigger
mechanisms mostly represented by heavy rainfall events, seismicity, or
human action. Landslides directly and indirectly impact a territory,
causing fatalities and huge socioeconomic losses also due to
environmental degradation and rapid population growth, which requires
correct land use policies and best practices for long-term risk
mitigation and reduction. In this context, geomorphological field
activities, satellite remote sensing, and numerical modeling offer
effective support for mapping and monitoring the activity of
landslides at both the local and regional scales.
We would like to invite you to participate in this Special Issue,
which will focus primarily on such innovative methods to accurately
investigate landslide phenomena providing useful products to
characterize landslide risk management. All landslide types are
considered, from fast rockfalls to debris flows and from slow-moving
slides to very rapid rock avalanches. All climatic and geographical
scales are considered, from the local to the global, including
individual and multiple slope failures.

consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to
send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in
Land (ISSN 2073-445X) is an international and crossdisciplinary open
access journal of land use/land change, land management, land system
science, and landscapes published monthly online by MDPI. It is
covered in the Social Sciences Citation Indexed (SSCI) in Web of
Science. The first Impact Factor will come out in this month. The
predicted IF is 2.5.
Authors can enjoy the following benefits: open access; no copyright
constraints; rapid publication; thorough peer review; no space
constraints; no extra charges for the use of space or color.
An Article Processing Charge (APC) of CHF 1000 currently applies to
all accepted papers. For further details on the submission process,
please see the instructions for authors at the journal website. Please
note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2020 an APC of 1400 CHF
We look forward to hearing from you.
