International Journal of Safety and Security in Tourism/Hospitality

The first journal dedicated to security in tourism and Hospitality.
Welcome to International Journal of Safety and Security in Tourism and Hospitality. This journal represents an efforts of many scholars who are concerned about the safety and security in tourism industry. The frequency of publication is one issue per year.

Recently the outbreaks of new viruses as Swine Flu or Dengue as well as the multiplication of violence in the world have placed the agenda of Western governments. Many local and international economies were jeopardized by a set of different hazards, natural disasters, financial crises and of course tourism was not an exemption. This journal combines a conjunction of conceptual and empirical-based papers but also contribute to expand the understanding of risk-perception. As a social construe the sense of security refers to our own way to perceive the otherness and our Being-in the world.

We strongly believe that the commercial nature of pay-for journals does not correspond with the publicity principle of Science. Besides, the quality of research should not be only determined by business goals. For that reason, the content of this journal are of free access.
