Summary of Selected Scholarship
Relating to Emergency Management

As emergency management continues to develop as a profession, the literature base relating to the profession grows. Prior to the emergence of professional emergency management, the knowledge base for disaster planning and emergency management was reflected as a subset in sociological, scientific, and public safety literature venues. Further, the studies and materials that were produced concerning emergency management were scant. Today, however, due to the expanding academic and professional disaster planning and homeland security communities, considerably more scholarship is being done in emergency management. Indeed, the numbers of applied and scholarly researchers publishing in the field for the purpose of advancing the discipline have increased dramatically in the past decade.
