Sector knowledge: Tourism, Culture & Communication

Journal Summary: Tourism, Culture & Communication is the longest established international refereed journal that is dedicated to the cultural dimensions of tourism. It covers diverse disciplines and a wide variety of research methods relating to the tourism and hospitality domain. Tourism, Culture & Communication provides readers with multidisciplinary perspectives that consider topics and fields extending beyond national and indigenous cultures as they are traditionally understood and recognized. Coverage may extend to issues such as cultural dimensions of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), gender and tourism, managing tourists with disabilities, sport tourism, or age-specific tourism. Contributions that draw upon the communications literature to explain the tourism phenomenon are also included. Beyond the focus on culture and communications, the journal recognizes the important interrelationships with economies, society, politics, and the environment. The journal consists of main articles, major thematic reviews, position papers on theory and practice, and substantive case studies. A reports section covers specific initiatives and projects, “hot topics,” work-in-progress, and critical reviews.
