Editorial Policy

The Journal of Insurance Issues (JII) is a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal published bi-annually. 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 presented theory has to be relevant for public policy or practitioners. The JII encourages new perspectives and is open to all rigorous research methods including, but not limited to, laboratory experiments, simulations, quantitative and qualitative empirical studies, and mathematical proofs.

Review Process

The Journal of Insurance Issues evaluates all manuscripts under the doubleā€blind review process. Each manuscript is the responsibility of one Associate Editor that is chosen by the Managing Editors. The Associate Editor corresponds with two reviewers of his/her choice. Reviewers’ comments together with the Associate Editor’s comments and recommendation are then communicated with the Managing Editors.
