Who Is At Risk? Terrorism Awareness And Preparation?
    Today's unstable economic and social climate have put the human race on the defensive, with the threat of terrorism present virtually everywhere around the globe. As the government does its part in increasing intell and security, it is also important for citizens to identify potential risks and take precautions throughout their daily activities to ensure meaningful threats are dispelled quickly and effectively.

    "What and Where are the Risks of International Terrorist Attacks: A Descriptive Study of the Evidence," written by scholars Kenneth David Strang (State University of New York, Queensbury, USA) and Serafina Alamieyeseigha (SA Consulting, Johannesburg, South Africa), describes the behavior factors of global terrorists, and the patterns of these behaviors from a socio-economical perspective. Identifying who the terrorist groups are, what they do, and where they attack, this article explores statistics and insights in order to help practitioners understand how global terrorism impacts all of us.

    This article has been published in the International Journal of Risk and Contingency Management (IJRCM), which features a comprehensive collection of interdisciplinary research papers, reviews, and case studies that examine risk, uncertainty, and contingency. The journal encourages risk and contingency research from disciplines like healthcare, manufacturing, natural resources, agriculture, government, education, military, transportation, finance, and technology.

There is a growing issue in the research community of authors submitting their articles to gold OA journals (and even hybrid OA/subscription-based journals), and then withdrawing their article after it has been accepted to the journal, effectively utilizing all of the resources of that journal, including the peer review, only to then refuse to publish at the end of the process.
