Journal of Risk Research
The Journal of Risk Research was launched in 1997, in liaison with the Japanese section, as the official journal of SRA-Europe.
A reduced subscription of £38/$60 is available to members of the SRA.
With ever-increasing frequency, risk issues have gained public attention, and attracted extensive media coverage. Events such as the Mad Cow Disease (BSE) crisis in the UK and the Brent Spar affair, have raised public awareness of risk to the point where, at times, the perception of the level of risk has been misplaced. Against this backdrop, risk research too has evolved, reflecting the sociological, psychological, economic and ethical dimensions as well as the physical and technical ones. However, although risk research is now firmly established as a multidisciplinary subject, it has tended to be concentrated within these different fields.
The Journal of Risk Research integrates the various disciplines, providing a forum that is unique within the risk field. It publishes peer reviewed articles from the areas of engineering, physical, health and social sciences, as well as articles related to decision-making, regulation and policy issues. By stimulating intellectual debate on risk across Europe, Japan and elsewhere, its aim is to promote better risk management practices, develop new methodologies and formulate innovative strategies that build upon the insights of the natural, technical and social sciences.
