Call for Papers


Dear Author(s),

The Journal of Risk Analysis and Crisis Response (JRACR) was founded by the Society for Risk Analysis – China (SRA-China), and published every quarter by Atlantis Press since July 2011. As an official publication of the SRA-China, JRACR aims to promote the development of science and technology in the field of risk analysis and crisis response, to provide an international forum for sharing theories and applications in the field, and for exchanging the research findings and case studies. Hence it is an international journal focused on publishing papers in science and technology rather than on public policies and regulations

On March 9, 2021 Springer Nature acquired Atlantis Press, and JRACR ceased publishing through the Atlantis Press platform. However, the back issues will continue to be available on the Atlantis Press platform until further notice of their migration to SpringerLink, in due course.

Using the original International Standard Serial Number (ISSN), SRA-China will continue to edit and publish its official publication, JRACR, on the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) platform, which was founded in 1998 ( According to the PKP PUBLISHING SERVICES: HOSTING SUPPORT AGREEMENT, “JRACR will be hosted and published in Public Knowledge Project – Open Journal Systems since Volume 11, Issue 3.”
