Instructions for Authors:

***Note to Authors: please make sure your contact address information is clearly visible on the outside of all packages you are sending to Editors.***

1. Submission of Manuscripts
Manuscripts must be submitted in English, and must be original, unpublished work not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The manuscript together with all original figures and tables should be submitted by email in Word file format to the Managing Editor Jamie Wardman at jamie.wardman@kcl.ac.uk.

2. Preparation of the Manuscript
The manuscript must be typed, double-spaced on A4 paper, with a least 3 cm margins (approximately 21 x 30 cm). To comply with the Journal of Risk Research's procedure of double-blind peer reviews, the manuscript must be in an anonymous format meaning that it should not include any information that will allow the reviewer to identify the author. Text references to the author's previous work may be included if this helps the development of the paper, but this should be done in such a way that does not make the authorship of the paper obvious. This may be accomplished by the author referring to themselves or their work in the third person and by referencing work cited in the normal way for example. The author details including the full names and affiliations of all authors, the full contact details of the corresponding author, along with any acknowledgements to institutions, funding agencies and other third parties should be set out on a separate page submitted along with the manuscript. Clearly written, concise manuscripts should comprise:

2.1 Title page (page 1)
Including: (a) a concise and informative title; (b) the full names and affiliations of all authors; (c) the full mailing address, telephone and fax numbers of the corresponding author.

2.2 Abstract (page 2)
Including: a concise and informative abstract of 200 words maximum, summarizing the significant points of the paper.

2.3 Introduction (page 3)
The introduction should clearly state the purpose (aims and objectives) of the paper. It should include key references to appropriate work but should not be an historical or literature review.

2.4 Discussion
The discussion should emphasize the implications and practical significance of research findings, their limitations, and relevance to previous studies.

* Formatting guide
* Reference style information: style, quickref

Any consistent spelling style is acceptable. Use single quotation marks with double within if needed.
A Word template is available for this journal.
If you have any questions about references or formatting your article, please contact authorqueries@tandf.co.uk

3. Tables
Each table must be typed, double spaced on a separate page. They must be consecutively numbered and should have a brief informative title. Tables should be understandable without reference to the text. Explanatory footnotes should be brief, placed beneath the table and indicated by lower case letters. When using percentages state the absolute value that corresponds to 100%. Identify all statistical methods.

4. Figures
All illustrations of any kind must be submitted as sequentially numbered figures, one to a page. If photographs, please supply high quality glossy photographs. Line figures, graphs etc, must be supplied as high quality laser print-outs (not photocopies). If it is necessary to submit drawings then these must be of the highest quality and clarity.

The author(s) name and the figure number should be written on the reverse of the figure in pencil. When symbols, arrows, numbers or letters are used to identify parts of illustrations they must be clearly identified by a key in the figure legend rather than in the figure itself. Similarly, internal scales, staining or processing of the figure must be explained where appropriate. Figure legends should be listed sequentially on a separate page.

Colour illustrations are acceptable; however the cost of colour production will be charged to the author.

5. Conventions
Use only recommended Sl units. Numerals should be used for all numbers of two or more digits, and for single digits when attached to units of measure. Abbreviations should be defined in brackets after their first mention in the text in accordance with internationally agreed rules.

6. Proofs
Proofs will be sent to the designated corresponding author and should be returned directly to the publisher within 3 days of receipt. Alterations in proofs other than the correction of typesetter's error may cause delay and extra charges that may be made to the author(s).

7. Free article access: Corresponding authors will receive free online access to their article through our website (www.informaworld.com) and a complimentary copy of the issue containing their article. Reprints of articles published in this journal can be purchased through Rightslink® when proofs are received. If you have any queries, please contact our reprints department at reprints@tandf.co.uk
