Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

This chapter examines a number of key themes in strategic management of human resources in tourism. These include: (1) the characteristics of tourism and their impact on the management of human resources; (2) tourism's image as an employer; (3) skills shortages in tourism; (4) education and training in tourism; (5) flexibility and innovation in the management of human resources; (6) recruitment, retention and turnover; (7) rewards, benefits and compensation; (8) managing quality through human resources; (9) the impact of globalization; (10) cultural contexts; (11) the emergence of 'aesthetic labour'; and (12) the impact of information and communication technologies.
