About the book

Since the last couple of decades, terrorism is a matter of great concern in many nations because of its negative effects on sustainable development which is critical for emerging economies. Efforts on the part of security forces and agencies need to stay a step ahead of the threats of terrorism to effectively prevent their occurrence. The primary objective of this book is to discuss and uncover the causes of terrorism and find a way to mitigate consequences of terrorist activities, which are not only damaging to the economic growth of countries but also build a negative image on an international forum. On the other hand, this book will also discuss the risk factors and types of risk involved in businesses including environmental risk, financial risk, compliance risk, strategic and operational risk, etc. Furthermore, this book will be a self-contained collection of scholarly papers targeting an audience of practicing researchers, academics, Ph.D. students and other scientists.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Tijan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
