Publications Task Group
Purpose of Committee: In response to the rapid and profound changes occurring in the scientific publishing landscape, IAFSS has created in June 2022 a new Publications Task Group (Pub-TG) with a mission to help IAFSS understand current changes and prepare for the future.
- To review changes in the scientific publishing landscape and to educate the IAFSS community on these changes
- To develop an informed and independent point of view for future interactions between the IAFSS and the Fire Safety Journal/Elsevier (for instance, to examine the possibility of making the Proceedings of the IAFSS Symposia open access)
- To examine the possibility of creating an open access repository of fire science publications (Green open access)
- To examine the possibility of having the IAFSS community launch its own open access journal, independently of any commercial publisher
