In January 2016, 141 professionals � directors, CIOs and managers of large, small and mid-sized companies � were surveyed for a comprehensive disaster recovery (DR) survey. The results of this survey reveal some important truths about DR, backup, availability goals, downtime costs, and responses. For instance, did you know the top risk to system availability continues to be human error? This benchmark survey report reviews the challenges and best practices of companies using or looking to implement DR solutions. Read this report to compare your DR experiences with those of your peers.

Due to the recent occurrence of disruptive earthquakes in Italy (Emilia, 2012; Central Italy, 2016 and 2017) following the L’Aquila earthquake in 2009, both disaster scholars and social scientists (sociology, anthropology, geography) communities show a growing interest in understanding the medium and long term impacts of such earthquake and the related controversial recovery.  Furthermore, in both national and international journals there is a growing interest on issues related to other Italian earthquakes. Nevertheless, while a number of publications exists about the short-term impacts of the earthquake in L’Aquila, evidences are still necessary for providing a clear understanding of the long terms impacts by the recovery and reconstruction management on local communities, their everyday life, and their surrounding environment.

Accordingly, this special issue aims to add to the existing body of knowledge on the L’Aquila earthquake a socially-centred perspective able to investigate issues broadly related to impacts on, and response by, the socio-cultural systems and its functioning. Theoretical and methodological findings for disaster research are also welcome. The call aims to collect perspectives from, but not limited to, disaster studies, geography, anthropology, sociology, political ecology, environmental history, and urban studies.
