Risk Analysis: An International Journal
Risk Analysis, the official journal received by all members of the SRA, provides a focal point for new developments in the theory and practice of risk analysis for researchers and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines, including behavioral, biological, decision, economic, engineering, health, physical, and social sciences. Its research and perspective articles focus on risk assessment, management, perception, and communication in the topic areas of human health, safety, and the built and natural environment.
Authors with questions, comments, or complaints about the handling of their papers should use this escalation process.
The Editors of Risk Analysis have updated a special Virtual Issue entitled: "Preparing for, Responding to and Recovering from Hurricanes." It features a collection of published articles on hurricanes, with an introduction discussing the growing theat of these hazardous weather events.
We have also added a new Virtual Issue which is a compilation of all 16 of the Biographical Profiles written by Michael Greenberg and Karen Lowrie over the past 10 years. These are profiles of people with distinguished careers and who have made significant contributions to the field of risk analysis.
History of SRA Journal
The journal was founded in 1981 and has grown remarkably during the last decade, including doubling the number of pages, publishing monthly, attracting increasing numbers of subscribers from Asia, and publishing many more papers from authors outside of Europe and North America. The impact factor has more than doubled, and while research articles are the bedrock of the journal, the journal has additional publication forms, including perspectives, book reviews, letters, biographical profiles, and editor's choices. The journal publishes several special theme issues each year on important and varied risk topics. Also, the editors have assembled past articles into themed virtual issues with introductory essays. Members have free access to virtual issues, as well as all online content.
