Risk Management Journal – Call for Papers



IGOR LONCARSKI, Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

Palgrave Macmillan announce Igor Loncarski (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) as the new Editor of Risk Management.

The aim of Risk Management is to bridge the gap between academia and industry (practice) by quantitatively addressing risk management issues of high relevance and importance to industry (practitioners), with academic rigor. The journal’s target audience are practitioners, regulators, academics, as well as those predominantly interested in the quantitative perspective on the most recent issues, advances and practices in the field of risk management. As its goals are closely aligned with The SWIFT Institute, it is part of its Advisory Board, and therefore pleased to support this Call.

Risk Management is mostly focused on the topics related to financial risk management (financial risks), but is also open to publishing research related to other types of risks at the corporate, institutional, and/or regulatory level that are perceived to be important and interconnected (for example, various operational risks). In terms of institutional focus, Risk Management welcomes research related to banks and insurance companies, asset management companies, and/or non-financial corporations.

You are invited you to contribute to Risk Management by submitting an original research paper related to the new aims and scope of the journal. Papers should address topics of relevance to practitioners with academic rigor and disseminate them in applicable fashion. The editor welcomes review papers that provide an excellent overview and dissemination of a particular topic that fits within the focus of the journal.

Do not hesitate to contact the editor if you have a suggestion for a special issue of the journal in which a particular topic or a broader theme is to be addressed from different perspectives. Special issues are typically related to specialized conference themes, so conference organizers (chairs) are encouraged to contact the editor when making conference arrangements.

Authors should submit papers via the EJournalPress online submission system at: http://rm.msubmit.net

The Editor is happy to respond informally to suggestions for articles: riskmanagement@palgrave.com

Full instructions for authors are available at
