Aims and Scope

Worldwide Hospitality and Tourism Themes provides thematic reviews of the major challenges facing the tourism and hospitality industry today.

Combining empirical data with secondary research and views of practitioners, each issue provides practical solutions. It is the only journal to stand back, ask the big questions and take a considered look at how academic analysis might assist practitioners in a meaningful way.

Each issue contains:
  • Answers to a strategic challenge facing tourism hospitality
  • A summary of relevant literature on the theme
  • Discussion/'thought pieces’ with practitioners responsible for dealing with the specific industry challenge
  • Implementable and practical management action

The journal takes a unique format. Each issue is themed and addresses a significant hospitality / tourism challenge. The outcomes from each issue must be implementable and make a practical contribution to the sustainable development of the worldwide hospitality and tourism industry.


"This is a good quality journal with a clear scope and purpose. Each issue comprises articles from one theme.
The themes are diverse and relate to various regions and topics. The journal is already well cited in other publications and coverage in Scopus will hopefully help to increase the impact even more." (Scopus)
