The Journal of Sustainable Tourism is a leading tourism journal which advances critical understanding of the relationships between tourism and sustainable development. It publishes theoretical, conceptual and empirical research that explores one or more of the economic, social, cultural, political, organizational or environmental aspects of the subject. Critical views and perspectives are encouraged, as well as new ideas and approaches in relation to the theory and practice linking tourism and sustainability. Contributions can be from all disciplinary perspectives, with inter-disciplinary work especially welcome. Holistic and integrative work is encouraged. All geographical areas are included, as are all forms of tourism, both mass and niche market. Papers can be especially useful if they contribute new understanding and insights not just to the field of sustainable tourism but also to the wider social sciences or between the social and natural sciences. Many contributions include significant empirical evidence, but some innovate in the field by providing new perspectives, approaches and insights through critical reviews. The journal publishes Main Papers, Book Reviews, and occasional Opinion Pieces. Book reviews and Opinion Pieces are by invitation only. We also commission Special Issues – contact the editors if you have a proposal for a Special Issue or Opinion Piece.
