Health Risk & Society is a new international scholarly journal devoted to a theoretical and empirical understanding of the social processes which influence the ways in which risks are taken, communicated, assessed and managed in relationship to health and health care. Public awareness of risk is associated with the development of high profile media debates about specific risks. Although risk issues arise in a variety of areas, such as technological usage and the environment, they are particularly well developed in health. Not only is health a major issue of personal and collective concern but failure to effectively assess and manage risk is likely to result in health problems. Health, Risk & Society is being launched with the aim of stimulating wider academic study of the issues by providing a focus for study and publication by academics with interests in the relationship between risk, health and society. Health, Risk & Society will be an interdisciplinary and intersectoral journal and contributions are welcomed from a variety of social sciences disciplines including economics, sociology, psychology and management which examine the issues of risk within health and health care. The journal particularly encourages submission of articles which explore the ways in which risk was handled at a variety of levels, e.g. in the community, within various organisations and at national and supranational levels. Articles should be accessible to a variety of audiences, including practititoners and policy-makers.
