Fire Technology is published in conjunction with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) whose mission is protecting people, their property, and the environment from the effects of fire and related hazards through education, codes and standards, research, and technical advisory services. Fire Technology is the foremost-refereed journal in its field, publishing rigorous scientific research dealing with the full range of actual, possible, and potential fire hazards facing humans and the environment today. The audience of readers and contributors comes from the entire international fire safety science and engineering community, both inside and outside of academia, including fire protection professionals, applied scientists, engineers and other design professionals, and other technically oriented fire safety practitioners. An important aim of Fire Technology is the encouragement of interdisciplinary communication of significant technical developments in fire protection and subjects of scientific interest to the fire protection community. It is a cross-disciplinary journal, and the editors encourage manuscripts addressing substantive issues from the perspectives of such fields as physics, chemistry, engineering, management science, ergonomics, and social and psychological aspects of fire risk. Fire Technology covers the entire domain of fire safety science and engineering problems relevant in industrial, operational, cultural, and environmental applications, including materials testing, fire modeling, detection and suppression, performance standards, human behavior, and fire risk analysis. It is devoted to the communication of significant technical developments in fire protection and subjects of scientific interest to the fire protection community such as data, experimental results, conclusions, evidence, and similar forms of advancement of knowledge in all technical aspects of fire protection that focus on fire safety science, fire protection engineering, fire research, fire risk analysis, fire investigation, municipal fire protection, wildland fires, loss statistics, and related subjects. Fire Technology publishes original contributions, both theoretical and empirical, that contribute to the solution of problems in fire safety and related fields. Material submitted for publication in Fire Technology is subject to a peer review process. Decisions on manuscripts will be based on validity, usefulness, and presentation. An eminent international editorial board ensures the high quality of accepted scientific articles. Main attributes of accepted contributions are originality, novelty, timeliness, and clarity of presentation. Review or survey articles are welcome and issues of Fire Technology may also feature brief technical notes, viewpoints, descriptions of current research activities, book reviews, software reviews, technical news, meeting notices, and letters to the editor. Annually, the best paper appearing in Fire Technology receives the Harry C. Bigglestone Award for Excellence in Communication of Fire Protection Concepts. This award includes a USD 1000 cash prize from the National Fire Protection Research Foundation. With thousands of subscribers worldwide, Fire Technology is a unique agent for the dissemination of scholarly work in fire safety science.
