As we all know, or rather should know, Risk Analysis is a risky business!

It is therefore quite surprising, and disappointing, that so many risk analysts are so relaxed about this risky business. In particular, one would have thought that peer-reviewed journals that are dedicated to risk analysis would be immune to obvious pitfalls in this business.

Furthermore, I would have expected such peer-review journals to be aware of the state of the art in areas that are closely affiliated with risk analysis.

It turns out that my expectations had been too high, hence the Risk Analysis 101 project.

The main objective of this project is to provide the readership of the peer-reviewed journal Risk Analysis, and the public at large, second opinions on some articles that somehow managed to infiltrated its peer review process.

These second opinions deal mostly with the challenging topics of Decision-making under severe uncertainty and Voodoo decision-making.
