A systematic network-based literature review of the Social Amplification of Risk Framework.
The Social Amplification of Risk Framework (SARF) is one of the research domains in Risk Perception Analysis as many studies have examined risk events and individual’s risk perception based on this framework. The aim of this study is to examine the development of this research domain regarding the constructs and relationships that have been established. In total, 12 SARF- related studies were collected and examined systematically by extracting hypotheses and constructs and assessing the operationalisation of the constructs. The finding showed that the Social Amplification of Risk Framework have been well studied as there were many constructs and hypotheses validated as shown in the network. The frequent tested constructs were also central elements of the Social Amplification of Risk Framework. Finally, further research is also suggested to focus on other constructs in the SARF that have not been examined and validated and potential relationships between constructs should be explored.
