CFP: SACRED LANDSCAPES

 

Almatourism announces a new Call for papers on Sacred landscapes:

IUCN UNESCO Guidelines [ http://sacrednaturalsites.org/items/sacred-natural-sites-guidelines-for-protected-area-managers/ ] for the Conservation and Management of Sacred Natural Sites defines the term "Sacred site" as areas of special spiritual significance to peoples and communities; and the term of "Sacred natural site" corresponds to the areas of land or water having special spiritual significance to peoples and communities. In this special issue Almatourism by University of Bologna, we intend to focus on “Sacred landscapes”, understood as those areas where nature-culture linkages are represented by the spiritual values that communities assign to their holy environments. The "sacred landscapes" are of high cultural value and these values have to be considered and analyzed in all their many aspects.

Language: english

Paper submission Deadline: September 30, 2017

Editor: Fiorella Dallari (University of Bologna)

Co-Editor: Olimpia Niglio (ISSR Monte Berico, Pontificia Facoltà Teologica Marianum)

CFP: Fashion between Heritage and Tourism

 

Almatourism announces a new Call for papers:

“Fashion between Heritage and Tourism”

Through this call we would like to take stock of the studies and researches about this topic, collecting contributions from different disciplines that may contextualize this field that includes various industry sectors. Indeed, the intersection between two worlds such as fashion and tourism, is in the junction of cultural industries, that includes cultural heritage, museums, libraries, archives and a series of activities on quality of life and creative ones that originate creativity and include advertising, film and video, architecture, music, art and antique markets, live entertainment, computer and video games, publishing, crafts, software, design, television, radio and fashion. It is just the multidisciplinary aspect, intrinsic to the idea of creativity, that hasn’t led, even today, any univocal definition for cultural and creative industries. Its establishment, as a matter of fact, stills an open question. In this sense, the development of fashion tourism, so rich in research evolving paths, can contribute to the specification of this new industrial sector.

We welcome papers across a wide range of disciplines including anthropology, architecture, business, communication, cultural studies, heritage studies, history, geography, media, museum studies, sociology, statistics, tourism, urban studies.

Claims of plagiarism

 

Recently, in the mailing list TRINET-L@lists.hawaii.edu, dr. Salem Harahsheh (University of Yarmouk) has addressed serious claims of plagiarism against a not specified article published in Almatourism. After contacting dr. Harahsheh for further clarifications, we identified the mentioned article in Sawsan Khries’ "Evaluation of Usage and Management of Pilgrimage Sites in Israel and Jordan: a Comparative Study" published in the non-peer reviewed section of the Journal  “Articles and reports” intended for works in progress. 

According to our editorial policies, the Journal editorial team analyzed Khries’ article, also with the help of specific software for plagiarism detection.

The result of the analysis revealed that in its descriptive parts, the article contains many passages taken from third party publications, but the author provides credits for them according to APA citation style, both in the text and in the final references. The conclusion of the paper appears to be completely original.

All facts considered and given the merely descriptive and informative scope of the short passages taken from non-scientific web site, containing elementary list of basic data or facts of common knowledge, in our opinion, the article “Evaluation of Usage and Management of Pilgrimage Sites in Israel and Jordan: a Comparative Study” by Sawsan Khries is not to be considered a plagiarism.
