Following the Finch Report in 2012, Universities UK established an Open Access Coordination Group to support the transition to open access (OA) for articles in scholarly journals. The Group commissioned to produce an initial report published in 2015 to gather evidence on key features of that transition. This second report aims to build on those findings, and to examine trends over the period since the major funders of research in the UK established new policies to promote OA.

Every year, disasters impact human lives and take a significant economic toll. Science plays a key role in reducing disaster risk and mitigating impact. The importance of disaster science is reflected in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, which links research to key priorities, including understanding disaster causes, investing in resilience, and strengthening governance.

In this report, we examine the link between man-made and natural disasters on the one hand, and disaster science scholarly output on the other. We uncover the focus areas of disaster science and zoom in on the most prominent countries involved in disaster science research.
