Aim & Scope: International Journal of Tourism Sciences is an international tourism and hospitality research journal. The journal provides an outlet for innovative studies that make a significant contribution to the understanding, practice, and education of tourism and hospitality. Specifically, the objectives of the journal are to contribute to the dissemination of knowledge through publication of high quality peer-reviewed research papers and reports, while serving as a unique forum for case studies for instructional use. The journal also aims to heighten awareness of the East Asian region as a significant player in international tourism. The journal encourages interdisciplinary scholarship and commentaries, aims at the highest intellectual level, and only publishes manuscripts that make significant contributions to the subject areas. The journal welcomes submissions based upon both primary research and reviews including papers in areas that may not directly be tourism based but concern a topic that is of interest to researchers in the field of tourism, such as economics, marketing, sociology and statistics. Peer Review Integrity All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees. All peer review is double-blind and submission is online via email to ijtseditors@gmail.com.
