Aims and Scope (from publisher): The aim of this international peer-reviewed journal is to provide an interdisciplinary platform for safety related aspects of human activity in extreme environments. It thereby enables researchers, professionals, students, decision makers and safety responsible from different areas to identify common problems and challenges and helps solving them.

Extreme environments are often characterized by high or excessive exposure to cold, heat, pressure, vacuum, voltage, corrosive chemicals, particle and electromagnetic radiation, shock, moisture or contamination. Remoteness, isolation and extreme working conditions together with a high degree of uncertainty often come along with these conditions. Human activities in those extreme environments, such as polar regions, space, deep sea, high altitudes and deserts, require therefore a special focus on the safety and the risk of such activities. It is therefore necessary to stimulate cross-disciplinary research and collaboration to develop new knowledge and share information for safe human activity.
