Article Submission, Comments or Editorial Matters

The Journal of Insurance Regulation (JIR) wants you! The Journal is soliciting articles concerning all aspects of insurance regulation. Articles range from relatively short (1,500-3,000 word) opinion pieces to in-depth legal studies, economic analyses, public policy analyses and empirical studies. The editorial review board and independent reviewers will evaluate all submissions in a double-blind review process, focusing on the importance of the subject, general readership interest, documentation of ideas and concepts, and relevancy to current hot issues. Recent submissions dealt with the evolving nature of the U.S. regulatory landscape, international insurance, terrorism insurance, the viatical settlements market, and interstate compacts.

The Journal also solicits outside reviews of material published elsewhere that may be of readership interest. Authors who have published articles in other venues are encouraged to submit synopses (100-300 words) so regulators and others can be directed to other sources.
