Note from the Editors

The Infrastructure Resilience Research Group (IRRG) under the auspices of the Office of the Dean of Engineering and Design at Carleton University, aims to build knowledge and encourage information-sharing to achieve the security and resilience of critical infrastructure. As one means to achieve that, we are launching an online journal to disseminate research results, planned activities, training opportunities and the experiences of those involved in some way with security and resilience issues.

The inaugural issue of this journal, the Infrastructure Resilience Risk Reporter (IR³), is is available now at the link above. The theme of the first and second issues will be Information-Sharing – a key element of resilience. Articles have been solicited for the first issue from leading public and private sector contributors who have agreed to share their knowledge and experience.

Issue two of the Reporter will appear in Summer 2014. The Editors urge anyone interested in submitting an article to send it for consideration to the editorial committee as soon as possible, but in any event, by the mid July 2014. The editors will review all articles submitted and advise contributors accordingly. (See below Guidelines for Contributors).

Readers who would like to see particular topics covered by the Reporter, or who have comments about previous articles, should contact

Guidelines for Contributors
Articles should be no more than four to five pages in length (5000 words). It should be accessible to a readership which we anticipate will include departmental security officers, industrial security officers and executives in the private sector as well as those who have a responsibility for or general interest in resilience issues. The editors would welcome articles which either have a practical application at the micro-level or are conceptual, thought provoking pieces which might relate to resilience policy, organizational behaviour or comparative studies. Footnotes should be kept to the minimum.
