The Risk Analysis Center is a major information resource on the subject of risks affecting humans. Its principal aim is to contribute to better public understanding of, and ability to evaluate, risk in everyday life.
The heart of the site is a large and ever growing on-line database that contains abstracts of risk-related information.
The abstracts are of articles containing information about risk that appear in the press (leading newspapers are scanned daily) and in scientific, medical and technical journals. Risk material is also included from sources such as books, papers and technical reports from academic, research and other institutions.
To select and view risk abstracts, click on the SEARCH button to the left.
All About Risk contains articles and discussion papers on risk subjects. Contributions are welcomed (see contact details below) on subjects such as The Nature of Risk, History and Background, The Measurement of Risk, Methodological Issues, The Perception and Acceptability of Risk, The Management of Risk and Reviews of New Developments in Risk Studies.
A Directory provides links to other web sites and centers of expertise on the subject of risk.
