The International Journal of Risk and Contingency Management (IJRCM) publishes interdisciplinary research papers, reviews, and case studies that examine risk, uncertainty, and contingency. The journal encourages risk and contingency research from disciplines like healthcare, manufacturing, natural resources, agriculture, government, education, military, transportation, finance, and technology. The journal’s cross-disciplinary coverage and applied focus moves risk and contingency management away from pure financial coverage. Academicians and researchers benefit by gaining insights from the research in this journal concerning how risk is measured and mitigated against across different disciplines, industries, and sectors.
Reviews and Testimonials
The International Journal of Risk and Contingency Management is a peer-reviewed journal where the editor and board are willing to hear the voices of researchers from all cultures and theoretical perspectives (not just the mainstream textbook variety). This is a journal with really interesting research. When I looked at an issue to access one article, I found myself reading other ones, and more, because they were interesting and authentic, with a variety of methods and theories yet still not far removed from the core concepts of risk management.

Hats off to IJRCM, IGI Global, Dr. Strang, and his editorial board team for helpful arrangements and editing on the journal. He can look at an abstract idea and tell me what to write about my research - and it worked.
– Gerry Wymar, Hammersmith Planning
Researchers and practitioners alike have in this journal an excellent compendium of some of the most current thinking in risk management. The IJRCM offers a unique blend of theory and its relationship to real-world problems in risk management. The journal appeals to my interest in the risk-reward tradeoff, and offers others an excellent discussion of how financial and engineering risk can be incorporated into corporate decision making.

Our experience with Dr. Ken Strang (Editor-in-Chief), as well as the InternationalJournal Risk and Contingency Management team, was excellent. He was very supportive in helping us improve our research paper, and he replied very promptly with the blind reviews and guided us through to the publication process. We would like to recommend IJRCM for authors who are searching for a quality peer-reviewed journal where the editorial board and publisher respects all scholars.

Risk management is often discussed in IJRCM using applied studies, which is in contrast to the abstract-mathematical approach used at many other journals covering these topics. IJRCM gives industry practitioners practical knowledge they can understand, relate to experience, and use in their practices. This is what brought me in here.
– Durango Vasthu, FEC-IBM
IJRCM contributes extensively to management practice by publishing articles that apply both qualitative and quantitative dimensions of risk management theory. The backbone of IJRCM is its eminent editorial board, and Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Kenneth Strang whose passion for research and understanding of cross-cultural perspectives is certainly an asset to any publisher. Continued patronage from researchers around the world is sure to make this journal strong.

It was a great honor to have our research article "A Critical Review of IT Innovations" (2013) published in IJRCM 2(3) in order to share this with the community of practice. Editor-in-Chief Dr. Ken D. Strang provided many important constructive comments, salient questions and relevant literature review suggestions. This particular information technology (IT) related manuscript critically reviewed the IT uncertainty faced by executive decision makers in business, most notably the key issues surrounding achieving competitiveness though leveraging IT as well as addressing security risks. This was a rewarding experience so we'll continue contribute our future research to this publisher as much as we can.

I have enjoyed researching for many years in my academic career. There have been many successes as evidenced by my numerous journal publications. However, the process experienced stemming from my initial submission to the “International Journal of Risk and Contingency Management” exemplifies their practice of Total Quality Management principles. They provided several comments of constructive criticism from the reviewers. These helped to make my research effort and presentation of a higher quality then my initial submission. The comments were truly constructive. In particular I would like to single out Dr. Ken Strang for his numerous correspondences regarding my need for clarification or assistance requested from reviewers. It was a pleasure to refine my work under the guidance of the staff and to witness employing TQM principles.
