Special Series in Risk Analysis Journal on "Perspectives on Risks of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnologies: Advancing the Science"

A collection of papers addressing diverse aspects of nanotechnology/nanomaterials and risk, co-edited by Jo Anne Shatkin and Warner North, has been published in the November 2010 issue of the journal Risk Analysis, Perspectives on Risks of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnologies: Advancing the Science (Volume 30, Number 11, November 2010). The ten papers address a breadth of topics and offer perspectives on communications, toxicology, risk assessment. Several papers summarize the deliberations of a 2008 workshop on nanotechnology and risk sponsored by the Society for Risk Analysis. Other papers discuss risk governance for nanomaterials and alternative approaches. These papers have been added individually to the Virtual Journal.

The publisher, Wiley Interscience, has graciously made the electronic version of this issue of the journal available to non subscribers for free until July 2011. The Table of Contents for this issue can be accessed at this link:   http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/risk.2010.30.issue-11/issuetoc.
