About the Role

Would you like to be the Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Administration? We are looking for a new Editor-in-Chief with an academic background in international hospitality and tourism management, as well as the passion to drive the journal forward in an exciting period of change. It is a significant role, with high profile, but one that is achievable within a continuing busy working academic timetable.

The successful candidate will be responsible for editorial oversight and decision-making on submissions. This person will have authority to accept articles following successful peer review and will ensure that reviewers and authors adhere to the Journal’s Code of Publishing Ethics. Additionally, the role includes but is not limited to management of the Editorial Board, maintenance of the submission system ScholarOne, and communication with Taylor & Francis Production and various departments.

Taylor & Francis will also organize regular Editor and/or Editorial Board meetings where applicable and will supply an annual report reflecting on the performance of the Journal. Becoming the editor of a journal is a rewarding and fulfilling experience where you will build your own networks, promote the research that you are passionate about, and be recognized as a leading figure within the academic community.
