Journal of Insurance Regulation

A Forum for Opinion and Discussion of Major Regulatory and Public Policy Issues in Insurance

The Journal of Insurance Regulation (JIR) strives to make state insurance departments more aware of the cutting-edge, high-quality research occurring in the regulatory arena. All authors having articles that deal with insurance regulation are invited to submit manuscripts to the Journal for review. Before appearing in the Journal, each article is rigorously evaluated by the JIR Editorial Review Board to ensure that all information provides a true benefit to its readers and is of the utmost quality. The ideas expressed in the Journal are not endorsed by the NAIC, CIPR, the Journal's editorial staff, or the Journal's board.

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 are in-depth legal studies, economic analyses, public policy analyses and empirical studies. Each article should be a minimum of 15 pages of text only and may also include figures and graphs to support or further explain the content of the article. 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.
