“IJCHM has emerged as one of the most influential journals in hospitality and tourism. Over the years the quality of papers published has provided both practical solutions and theoretical developments for the hospitality industry globally. IJCHM publishes research that has relevance and impact in the industry as it contributes to the management theory in this specialized area but also to best practice. The global perspective it has adopted makes it multi-cultural and international.”
