Call for Papers Submission Form

We are pleased to announce that the Institute of Strategic Risk Management (ISRM) Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) Journal has been extended in its focus and coverage to now be the ISRM International Journal.

The next journal issue will be published in late-September 2022, and we are calling for papers from risk and resilience management professionals who would like to share their experience and insights with their colleagues. 

Aligning with the Australian PSG (Protective Security in Government) Conference 2022, the theme for this edition is “Security: Past, Present & Future” – and we are looking to publish 6 papers for each of these phases/time frames. Papers will be chosen based on the grounds of relevance, quality, and significance. Papers may also be chosen, at the editor’s discretion, for inclusion in future journal issues.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 22nd July 2022. Submissions can either be opinion pieces or peer-reviewed articles, guidelines for which are detailed below.

Authors are required to submit with their paper:

  • 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.
