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.
- Call for Papers on Topics Related to the Coronavirus: This Call for Papers on the theme of “Global Systemic Risk and Resilience for the Wuhan Coronavirus” is intended to indicate insights and viewpoints from scholars regarding risk and resilience analytics for policy making and operations of large-scale systems on this epidemic. Authors are encouraged to submit their articles addressing the theme of this special issue. This call is coordinated between SRA and the Social and Economic Security Technical Committee of the IEEE Systems Man and Cybernetics Society and the Analytics and Risk Technical Committee of the IEEE Systems Council.
- Our most recent Virtual Issue is on Risk Analysis & Coronavirus, which compiles papers on previous coronavirus outbreaks, including SARS in 2003 and MERS in 2012. Patterns and parallels can be drawn between these recent outbreaks.
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.
