Call for Papers


The call for a responsible tourism recovery is increasingly commendable amid a global pandemic. The tourism industry has a worldwide scope with symmetrical impacts at the local, regional, national and international levels. The global pandemic has had a catalytic impact at the macro and micro levels as well as at the cross-sector levels. This issue focuses on how tourism can help transform the tourism sector to respond to the global post-pandemic situation.

We invite papers looking at how tourism can play a critical role in socio-economic recovery by empowering local entrepreneurship. Our knowledge and history of the crisis show that the tourism industry can recover and return to normal. But how? What does normal mean? The tourism recovery is possible if the industry regains responsible intention of the visitors as well as the sustainable planning approaches of the destination can mitigate the impacts of future crisis. While still critical, papers should offer opportunities for hope, regeneration and transformation of the potential of tourism. We welcome contributions from academics and industry representatives, both theoretical and empirical. These contributions are expected to clearly address the implications of the research in question. The proposed topics may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Tourism and hospitality management
  • Crisis management
  • Destination resilience and sustainability
  • Planning and development of tourism destinations
  • Tourism, experience economy, and sustainability
  • Design of innovative experiences in tourism
  • Tourism and new technologies
  • Community-based tourism
  • Heritage tourism
  • Marketing services
  • Virtual experiences

Paper submission Deadline: June 5th, 2023
