The Journal of Insurance Issues (JII), the official journal of the Western Risk and Insurance Association, is co-sponsored by the Southern Risk and Insurance Association. From 1979 through 1984 the JII was published as the Journal of Insurance Issues and Practices.
The JII is committed to publishing rigorous theoretical and empirical research articles that address relevant and timeless topics in the field of risk and insurance broadly defined. The main criterion for which all manuscripts are judged is their impact on the risk management and insurance field as a whole. All manuscripts, including the empirical manuscripts, need to test, extend, or develop new theory; and the article should describe the relevance of the presented theory for public policy or practitioners. The five-year acceptance rate for the JII is 13.7 percent.
The entire set of volumes of the JII is carried in JSTOR; Proquest covers the materials from 1999 to the present. Links to previously published papers are availble on the Journal Contents page of this web site. Access to those publications is also possible via Ideas/RePc, EconPapers, and EconLit websites.
