Dr Alfred Keller, Founding Editor of Disaster Prevention and Management (DPM) and International Journal of Quality & Reliability Management (IJQRM), sadly passed away on 4 July 2014, aged 89.
Dr Keller worked with Emerald to launch DPM in 1992, while he was a Reader at the University of Bradford and Director of the Disaster Prevention and Limitation Unit. Now in its 24th volume, DPM has established itself as a leading publication in the field of Disaster Risk Management (DRM). The extensive contribution made by Dr Keller and his co-editor at the time, Dr H.C. Wilson, played a pivotal role in laying the foundations and driving the success of the journal for the DRM community.
Emerald would like to take this opportunity to thank and acknowledge the contribution of Dr Keller and to offer its sympathy to his family, friends and colleagues.
