Author Guidelines

All manuscripts submitted for publication in the Risk Management and Insurance Review must include an article abstract, the complete titles and affiliations of all authors, and complete contact information-including e-mail address-for the corresponding author.  Each manuscript must be submitted as an electronic file in MS Word, WordPerfect, AppleWorks, or another word-processing format compatible with Word.  Submissions in Scientific Word will not be accepted.  All graphics must be provided in an eps format or other format fully compatible with Pagemaker, and all source data for charts and tables must be included.  (At the request of the editors, a hard copy of the manuscript and attendant graphics might be required.)

Upon receipt, each manuscript will undergo preliminary editorial review to determine its basic suitability for consideration in one of the Review's three sections-Feature Articles, Perspectives, or Educational Insights.  Manuscripts deemed suitable for consideration as Feature Articles will be sent out to one or more referees for anonymous peer review; manuscripts deemed suitable for consideration in the other two sections might be sent out for anonymous peer review at the discretion of the editors.   The entire review process normally takes from six to eight weeks.
