Earthquake Spectra Call for Papers on CENA Special Issue

Submission deadline extended to July 15, 2020.


Earthquake Spectra is soliciting papers for a special issue dedicated to seismic hazard in Central and Eastern North America (CENA). We welcome papers related to simulated and empirical data, analyses and modeling ground motion, or any other relevant topic having a direct impact on the estimation of seismic hazard for CENA and other similar stable continental regions.

This special issue will also include papers from the multi-year NGA-East Project that involved a large number of participating researchers from organizations in academia, industry, and government. This community-based project resulted in several products that will be featured in this issue, including the NGA-East ground motion database, and a new ground motion characterization model for the CENA region. Since the completion of the NGA-East project, many other research projects and activities have taken place which we would like to feature as well in this special issue.

Submission Process: Submit your paper in Earthquake Spectra‘s online submission system here. Please log in to your account if you have one or create a new account if you don’t have an existing one. Start a new submission under the “author” tab and then select “CENA Special Issue.”
