Summary of "Does the DOSPERT Scale Predict Risk Taking Behaviour During Travel? A Study Using Smartphones."

Despite the continuing growth of international tourism, very little research has been done on the link between individual risk attitudes and health behaviours during travel. Our study uses a validated risk-taking questionnaire (DOSPERT) and data from a smartphone application to study the association between pre-travel risk attitudes and the occurrence of behaviours during travel.
