The Future of the Tourism Profession

Current Issues in Tourism is developing a special issue dedicated to anticipating the future of the tourism professions through an open debate about the cues that persist in shadowing the reputation of the professions in tourism.  The special issue welcomes contributions such as literature reviews and empirical and conceptual research to provide insights into all aspects of professions in tourism as it paves the way to increase the notoriety of the tourism profession. We encourage submissions focusing on multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary nature and longitudinal research. Further research that covers the labour market conditions, the professional motivations and attitudes and/or the paradigms of education in tourism are also welcomed.

The range of sub-topics related to tourism and hospitality professions includes, but is not limited to:
• Turnover antecedents and consequents
