European Actuarial Journal (EAJ)
The EAJ is the journal of the EAJ Association, a European platform with the goal to increase collaboration among European national actuarial associations in order to promote actuarial science. Actuarial science and actuarial finance deal with the study, modeling and managing of insurance and related financial risks for which stochastic models and statistical methods are available.
The European Actuarial Journal publishes research articles as well as papers engaging the mutual transfer between research and practical applications in actuarial science. Topics include classical actuarial mathematics such as life and non-life insurance, pension funds, reinsurance, and also more recent areas of interest such as risk management, asset liability management, solvency, catastrophe modeling, systematic changes in risk parameters, longevity, etc.
The EAJ Conference takes place every two years. The association provides the opportunity for academics and practitioners to discuss and present their work. Young researchers are particularly encouraged to introduce their findings.
The EAJ particularly focuses on links between actuarial theory and practice. In order to serve as a platform for this exchange, discussions on published papers that highlight the application aspects of the discussed paper, are welcome. Such discussions can also suggest modifications of the studied problem which are of particular interest to actuarial practice. Thus, they can serve as motivation for further studies.
Finally, EAJ now also publishes ‘Letters’, which are short papers (up to 5 pages) that have academic and/or practical relevance and consist of e.g. an interesting idea, insight, clarification or observation of a cross-connection that deserves publication, but is shorter than a usual research article. A detailed description or proposition of a new relevant research question, short but curious mathematical results that deserve the attention of the actuarial community as well as novel applications of mathematical and actuarial concepts are equally welcome. Letter submissions will be reviewed within 6 weeks, so that they provide an opportunity to get good and pertinent ideas published quickly, while the same refereeing standards as for other submissions apply. Both academics and practitioners are encouraged to contribute to this new format.
Authors are invited to submit their papers online via http://euaj.edmgr.com.
