ISRM Global Journal 3rd Edition Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce that the Institute of Strategic Risk Management (ISRM) is ready for the Global Journal, 3rd Edition!

Call for Papers

The next ISRM Global Journal issue will be published in late-September 2023, and we are calling for papers from risk and resilience management professionals, as well as academics from related fields, who would like to share their experience and insights with their colleagues.

We are aligning this publication with a significant ISRM event, namely the launch of the ISRM Centre for the Study of Wicked Problems (CSWP). Subsequently, although submissions concerning all aspects of risk and resilience are indeed welcome, we are encouraging a particular focus to be on “Wicked Problems”.

Deadline for Submission

The deadline for submissions is Monday 28th August 2023. Submissions can either be opinion pieces or peer-reviewed articles, guidelines for which are detailed below.


Submission Guidelines:

Authors are required to submit with their papers:

  • a suitable high-definition professional headshot;
  • a brief biography (approx. 100 words);
  • and 2 or 3 quotes/extracts from the paper that best captures its key points.

Opinion Piece:

  • To be original in content, and to provide appropriate references where other content is indeed included. The responsibility for originality and plagiarism issues remains with the author, not the Institute of Strategic Risk Management (ISRM).
  • Make a contribution to business practice, and have not been previously published elsewhere.

  • Not be commercial in nature (i.e. advertising or publicising a service or product)
  • Author/s to include a statement regarding conflicts of interest.
  • Articles should be submitted in Word and double spaced.

Role of ISRM Journal Peer Review Committee:

  • Reviewers may offer comments and suggestions for further revision, or reject the paper.
  • Final copy-editing may occur to ensure a professional standard is maintained.
  • Once the paper has been accepted for publication, the publication date will be advised.

As the deadline is indeed approaching, we encourage those interested in submitting an article to make contact with us as soon as possible.
