Tourism and Hospitality Management is a refereed, open access journal that promotes research and the dissemination of research results in the field of tourism and hospitality. It publishes peer reviewed articles and encourages an interchange between tourism and hospitality researchers, educators and managers.

The journal is primarily aimed at publishing scientific papers which are subject to double-blind reviews and are categorized as follows: original scientific papers, preliminary communications and reviews. Conference papers, technical papers and book reviews will also be published. The editors reserve the right to return improperly formatted manuscripts to the authors, without double-blind review.

Manuscripts submitted to the journal should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time. Authors need to ensure that all of the co-authors contributed to the scientific results and findings to a sufficient extent to be regarded as co-authorship. Guest authorship without the actual involvement of the co-author and ghost authorship without listing the real author are considered to be unethical behaviour.

The journal does not charge the article submission and processing fees.


Please read and follow the guidelines for authors carefully. Manuscripts that are not prepared in accordance with the guidelines, will be returned to authors. Guidelines for authors can be found here.
