Tourism Review aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of tourism as an interdisciplinary phenomenon and to provide insights into developments, issues and methods in tourism research.
Established in 1946, it is the official journal of AIEST, the International Association of Scientific Experts in Tourism, and promotes an exchange of scientific concepts and research findings across different cultures and languages as well as serving as a platform of results, in particular, for young researchers.
The journal is targeted at a broad audience including scientists as well as policymakers and managers.
Tourism Review provides original, creative, multi- and interdisciplinary contributions on:
• aspects of tourism demand (consumer behaviour) and its development in a socio-economic context
• managing and marketing tourism products and services in a destination network with its social, ecological and economic interrelations
• markets and its institution in transition
• systemic analysis and concepts of tourism as a whole
The editors and members of the editorial board encourage articles that:
• review and scrutinize common knowledge, theory or previous empirical results and as such provide indication for future paths of research and practice;
• explore issues and topics which can be characterized as serious food-for-thought, because they might challenge common knowledge, theory or previous empirical results;
• develop an enhanced understanding of tourism as an interdisciplinary phenomenon, applying theories from any other disciplines is strongly supported;
• provide a deepened understanding of, and which challenge, methods used in tourism research (both quantitative and qualitative);
• present clear results that are accessible to scientists and practitioners alike;
• provide relevant results for scientists and their further research, as well as politicians and managers;
• and, that stem from young and mid-career researchers.
The main criteria for selecting contributions include:
• originality of approach (theoretical and/or methodological contributions); relevancy of results to academics or practitioners or preferably both;
• we strongly encourage authors – if and when appropriate – to challenge common knowledge, theory or previous empirical results.
Readers of Tourism Review are challenged with a multifaceted approach to the "tourism" phenomenon through the topics addressed and, on occasion, by the geographic denomination of its papers.
As the official journal of AIEST, Tourism Review seeks to prompt discussion across disciplines and research streams on a global level. It further aims to link the world of scholars and practitioners together by providing an insight into pressing issues in one or both of these worlds.
Key journal audiences
• Researchers and educators working in fields related to tourism who wish to broaden their perspective and draw ideas on research issues related to the field.
• Managers working in fields related to tourism in general and product-service providers and destination executives in particular.
• Policy makers influencing and designing the market regulatory and institutional framework for tourism.
