Risk Perceptions

"Findings from risk perception studies using demographics as explanatory variables show that risks tend to be judged lower by men than by women and by Caucasians than by people of other ethnicities . This finding is supported by Lagattuta with findings that females of all ages tend to worry more than males. Women also tend to perceive more risk in situations and grow more anxious than men. In addition the study finds that women are more likely than men to believe that past experiences accurately forecast the future. Other studies have shown that young females use emotion-based strategies more than males to respond to stress. Males depict higher levels of disengagement responses. Such strategies include; acceptance, positive thinking, and emotional expression. Rumination as stress response decreases with age, whereas intrusive thoughts were more prevalent in the older groups (Americans’ Potential Responses to Deliberate Food Contamination: A Risk Perception and Communication Study; Onyango B, et al.) The Impact Factor, often abbreviated IF, is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals. IF is calculated by dividing the number of citations in the Journal Citation Reports year by the total number of articles published in the two previous years. High impact factor for a particular journal implies good number of citations and quality of work. Because of the open access journals, impact factors are improving. Open access journal articles are essentially peer-reviewed and available for access through the directory of Open Access journals. Each open access journal delivers the latest updates in the respected research area in various formats so that subscribers can access the same through various options. With the growing number of scientific enthusiasts and readers by a large margin, the efficacy of open access publishing has witnessed an assertive impact "
