Abstract

Editorials and commentaries in academic journals can perform a useful function in the social sciences, by bringing different ideas and perspectives to the fore they may help to punctuate academic discourse and lead to a more
focused debate about the development, validity and utility of a particular concept or theme of research. In this respect, Sjoberg’s (2006) editorial of this issue, ‘Will the real meaning of affect please stand up?’ is a timely
critique of a burgeoning area of risk perception research.
