Risk and Risk Management in Diverse Settings

Deadline for proposal submission has expired!

We are pleased to announce a publication opportunity of a volume to be included in Springer’s Risk, Governance and Society Series.

Risk and risk management are long-standing matters of public debate, professional concern and academic research. We aim at exploring risk and risk management issues, challenges, and best practices in diverse, peculiar, under-investigated settings. Thus, we welcome book chapter proposal on the following issues:

  • Risk and risk management disclosure within new forms of reporting (e.g. integrated report)
  • Risk and risk management around exceptional situations (e.g. COVID-19, scandals)
  • Risk and risk management in specific fields of activity (e.g. health sciences, engineering, public administration)
  • Risk management in the context of Small- and Medium-Sized Entities and family-owned companies
  • Risk management and internet-related technologies (e.g. cloud, big data, blockchain, artificial intelligence)
  • Inter-relationships between risk, decision-making, modelling, social and macro-economic concerns
  • Risk management, corporate governance, and regulation
  • Risk, reputation and value
  • Risk culture

Book chapter proposals, either in the form of an extended abstract (up to 1,000 words) or a full paper (up to 8,000 words), should be submitted to by August 31st , 2020.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed prior to acceptance for publication.

Upon acceptance of the extended abstract, full papers should be submitted by November 1st, 2020.
