The field of crisis and risk communication research has always been multidisciplinary bringing together researchers from many fields like business, public relations, political science, sociology, psychology, journalism, tourism, and public health.

As the pieces in this issue demonstrate, our field serves the public interest in many ways and is a growing global field of study.
