Tourism Economics is an international peer reviewed journal, covering the business aspects of tourism in the wider context.

The definition of tourism used includes tourist trips taken for all purposes, embracing both stay and day visitors.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Core subject areas:

  • forecasting
  • public policy (strategies, fiscal and other intervention policies)
  • economic development
  • market structures and competition
  • sources of capital provision
  • labour economics (quality and productivity issues)
  • business aspects of marketing
  • private and public sector interaction
  • economic appraisal at sector and project level
  • mathematical modelling
  • developments in the components of the product
  • structure of the tourism industry (including such issues as ownership, corporate size, international operations, etc)
  • regional economic effects of tourism developments
  • analysis of international data on tourism, such as WTO statistics

Tourism Economics publishes regular special issues. Current calls for papers are listed here.
