The Journal of Crowd Safety and Security Management – An Online Journal (JCSSM) was an educational, industry oriented journal which is designed to serve as a forum for practitioners, scholars, and students who where actively engaged in the academically fledgling industry of crowd safety and security.
Through the Journals short run (2009-2012) it published essays, discussion and research notes, book reviews, and commentaries. The overriding aim of the Journal was to contribute actively to the professionalisation of the crowd safety and security industry by creating a platform which encourages dialogue between the industry and academia, and promotes research and good practice.
For several years now, we at Working With Crowds have attempted to track down these Journals, to share with the crowd safety community that may not be aware of them. They allowed practitioners to share their thoughts and findings on relevant subjects, issues and improve understanding on crowd safety topics.
In recent years, we have seen less and less involvement from industry in sharing and developing our underpinning knowledge; something this resource would like to see raised again.
Unfortunately there was only ever 4 editions of the Journal and after the assistance of Martin Holmes and Prof. Dr. G. Keith Still, these are now on this page, for access.
