Academic journals: International Journal of Tourism Cities

Journal summary: The International Journal of Tourism Cities (IJTC) provides an international forum for the critical study of urban tourism and tourism cities. The journal aims to be inter-disciplinary in its appreciation of tourism cities and tourism in urban areas, and welcomes original, theoretically-informed articles from those involved in the planning, management or marketing of tourism in city destination or places adjoining urban areas.
Urban tourism and travel cover many disciplines and impinge on numerous aspects of daily life within cities. Moreover, they play a key role in domestic and international tourism in most countries, and cities often function as key travel gateways and tourism destinations.  The journal particularly encourages contributions on contemporary topics and issues in urban tourism including smart cities and tourism, environmental impact and sustainable tourism development in cities, citizen and stakeholder involvement in tourism, city destination governance, and the development of policies and standards for city tourism development. IJTC is the official journal of the International Tourism Studies Association (ITSA). 

IJTC has four distinct purposes:

  • To encourage greater research and scholarship related to tourism in urban settings.
  • To stimulate more interdisciplinary research on tourism in cities, particularly the integration of tourism and urban studies theories and principles.
  • To generate more research studies on tourism at the edge of cities, where urban and rural areas converge.
  • To create more literature on best practices in city tourism worldwide through in-depth analyses and the production of exemplary case studies.
