New editor calls for papers for revamped Annals

The new editor of the Profession’s Annals of Actuarial Science is calling for papers for the re-launched journal. Professor Angus Macdonald FFA said he was looking forward to publishing the journal, which could be particularly relevant in the current financial climate.

“Articles in the journal have the potential to make a far-reaching impact. To the extent that actuaries have skills that might have helped to ameliorate recent events, our readership should not be confined to the profession. “It can play a part in rebuilding the market following the crisis by attracting authors who have the key insights into how to do that.”

Submissions should pose interesting questions, offer innovative solutions or significant progress, and have relevance to some recognisable part of the actuarial community. Professor Macdonald said that he aimed to help make the journal one of the best in the world in its discipline in the next decade.

Annals of Actuarial Science’s international nature is important in ensuring that UK actuarial practice is informed by new thinking from anywhere. A fully refereed journal, as it is, aims to attract and promulgate the highest quality of original work which propels fresh thinking.” The re-launched journal will also be published in full colour for the first time.
