Special Issue: Risk Management

Guest Editors: Simon French, Alec Morton, Ortwin Renn


  • Deadline for submission: September 30, 2012


Most decision making involves dealing with uncertain consequences and managing these uncertainties. Thus decision process and risk management are intimately interconnected, although their literatures are based in distinct communities. The purpose of this special issue of the EURO Journal of Decision Processes (EDJP) is to explore that relationship and draw together different disciplinary perspectives on risk management and decision. EJDP–which has been recently established by the Association of European Operational Research Societies (EURO)–publishes papers that contribute to the understanding and appropriate use of operational research in supporting different phases of decision making processes. More information on EJDP is at http://www.springer.com/40070


The editors seek state of the art reviews and research that develop our understanding of risk management and decision processes. We invite submissions covering, for example:

  • state-of-the-art reviews of methods and applications;
  • analysis of how risk and uncertainties are handled or managed in decision making;
  • theoretical underpinnings of risk and methodological advances in risk analysis for decision making;
  • modeling of uncertainties, risks, preferences, multiple criteria, constraints, and interdependencies for the purpose of improving the quality of decision making;
  • development and evaluation of software and tools for risk management and decision processes;
  • embedding of analytical approaches in organizational decision making and risk management processes;
  • reflective reports of innovative applications and high-impact case studies on the interface between risk and decision making


Prospective authors are invited to submit a full paper to the Manuscript Central editorial system (https://www.editorialmanager.com/ejdp, article type SI: Risk Management). Alternatively, they may send the Guest Editors a three-page extended abstract describing the proposed contribution ([email protected]) for feedback. The planned schedule is as follows:

September 30, 2012 Deadline for submission of full papers
November 15, 2013 Final decision notification
