International Journal of Wildland Fire

International Journal of Wildland Fire

The NSW Rural Fire Service Library has annual agency membership with the International Association of Wildland Fire (IAWF). The IAWF produces two publications.

The Wildfire Magazine is their free online publication. It is available here. Hardcopies are also available to read in the library.

The International Journal of Wildland Fire (IJWF) is their subscribed journal and is published by the CSIRO, on behalf of the IAWF. It contains new and significant papers that advance basic and applied research concerning wildland fire. More information about the IJWF is found here.

If you are a NSW RFS Member and would like to receive an email alert when a new issue of the International Journal of Wildland Fire is available with a list of the contents, please contact the library.

NSW RFS staff are able to access full text IJWF articles when on the NSW RFS intranet by requesting the password from the library.

Useful Links are more useful than before

Useful Links library page

The library homepage has a page dedicated to a collection of Useful Links that will assist many people in quickly finding the right website to suit their bush fire interest. Whether it is the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Forestry Corporation of NSW or the CSIRO PyroPage, there is a good chance the website is in this list.

The list also includes public links to coronial inquiries and final reports relating to historical bush fire incidents in Australia.

If you think a website link should be added, let the library know in an email.
