The Australasian Journal of Disaster and Trauma Studies (AJDTS) is an open-access, peer-reviewed electronic journal for collating and distributing original research into social aspects of natural hazards, disasters and related psychological trauma, with a focus on Australasia.

Manuscripts accepted for submission are peer reviewed by leading scholars throughout the English-speaking world. The journal uses a blind peer review process, to ensure that each manuscript is judged on its own merits, and on the value of the research contained.

Articles published in the AJDTS are freely available to the public, via this website. All AJDTS articles are indexed in Scopus, PsychInfo, and Google Scholar research databases.

There is currently no cost to authors to publish in AJDTS with publication costs funded by the Massey University School of Psychology, and special issues co-funded by collaboration partners.
