Myths and Fairytales in Tourism (Tourism Review)
In 2015, Tourism Review, the official outlet of AIEST (International Association of Scientific Experts in Tourism) will celebrate its 70th volume of publication. For that, we plan a number of special issues.
One of these special issues will be “Myths and Fairytales in Tourism”.
We hereby call for papers for this special issue (see CfP attached).
We admit: The title might be a bit odd (to say the least). This is intentional.
We are looking for work that challenges the existing body of knowledge (factoids or assumptions), questioning what we appear to know,
in a serious (in terms of relevance and rigour) but possibly also entertaining way (we have something to celebrate!).
So, we look out for rejected hypotheses, critical reviews/ viewpoints (in terms of content and methodology alike), new ideas out-of the-box, and the like.
Formats of papers can be research papers, viewpoints, conceptual papers, case studies, literature reviews, or general reviews.
The criteria to select papers shall be driven by the accuracy of the issue addressed as well as the innovativeness of the approach and arguments.
For your information: Tourism Review is the oldest tourism journal in the world and has recently been ranked ‘B’, according to the ABDC journal ranking list.
