Tourism Recreation Research
Call for Papers
Sustainability is a most challenging epithet in the development vocabulary. As of now, there is no more superior concept of development than sustainability. In essence, it fulfills two key desires of humankind: sufficiency and longevity; which are not easy to achieve. We urgently need the key to unlock the sustainability mystique. Tourism has attained notoriety for creating ‘boom and bust’ phenomena; mass-tourism, mass-consumption and mass-production are threats to sustainability. Sustainable tourism involves minimizing negative impacts and maximizing positive impacts to maintain long-term viability. The caring for the integrity of physical ecosystems, economic viability and social responsibilities are the prime goals of the concept.
In order to identify scientific clues to the problem of sustainability, Tourism Recreation Research has decided to introduce a new column, ‘Sustainability Series’ in which scholars shall shed light on the progress of the problem and argue that whether is it worth pursuing or we should search for some other alternative methods with the help of science and technology. The principal aims of this series are to:
- Search for alternatives to sustainable development
- Search for best practices and models to adopt in order to achieve sustainability
- Create new knowledge and knowledge transfer for SD
- Acquire deep knowledge of ecological economies (an economy that respects physical sciences)
- Postulating roles of Stakeholders for SD
- Building Sustainable Societies
- Developing resilience
Each issue of TRR shall have one full length paper (about 8,000 words) on a specific aspect of sustainability and the series editor shall present his concluding remarks on all four articles published under this series in the subsequent volume. If you would like to submit an article for this section, please contact the Series Editor, Richard Butler, for more details and guidelines on the submission process.
