CQ has the following attractive attributes:
· 2.41 ISI Impact Factor in 2015
· 10% acceptance rate in 2016
· 75% desk-rejection rate in 2016 (with desk rejections usually made within 3 days of submission)
· 31 day average turnaround time on first submissions sent out for review
· an active editor who is not a vote counter
· a policy of handling R&R’s without sending them back to the reviewers
· a policy of accepting and using existing reviews from other journals (when provided by authors – see more details below).
Note on existing review policy: Authors of manuscripts rejected by another journal can submit revisions of those rejected papers to CQ along with supplemental files containing the previous editorial decision and reviews, a detailed response to those editor and reviewer comments, and the original version of the paper that was rejected. If the reviews are sufficiently thoughtful and helpful, CQ’s editor will base his decision on the previous editorial letter, reviews, response and revision without seeking additional reviews. Assuming that such a rejected paper has merit and is consistent with CQ’s focus on hospitality and tourism, then authors have a real chance of getting a different decision from CQ than they did from the original journal because CQ has a different set of priorities, standards, and set of submissions to select from and its editor may evaluate the paper and reviewer comments differently. In fact, CQ’s editor will face much less pressure than the original editor to agree with the reviewers because he will not know those reviewers’ identities or be likely to need their help with future reviews.
The Cornell Hospitality Quarterly is a peer reviewed, scholarly journal that is published quarterly in association with the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration. The CQ aims to be a source of the best advances in theory and/or research relevant to management of the hospitality industry broadly defined to include all businesses or other organizations involved in the transport, accommodation, feeding, entertainment, and caretaking of voluntary travelers away from home. Papers and research notes on any topic, from any discipline and using any methodology are welcome provided they sufficiently advance our understanding of how to manage hospitality businesses and organizations. Suitable topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Effects of minimum wage increases on restaurant prices and employment
- Spillover effects of online advertising
- Effects of music, scent, or color on consumer restaurant behavior
- Determinants of online review fraud
- Determinants and/or consequences of hotel employee turnover
- Double jeopardy in the airline industry
- Effects of loyalty program membership on consumer spending
- Effects of queue structure and length on customer satisfaction with wait times in amusement parks
- Operational consequences of private equity buyouts in the restaurant industry
- Impact of environmental certification on hotel performance
- Determinants of restaurant success/failure

Manuscript Preparation Guidelines
Prospective authors should review the following guidelines before submitting a manuscript. Authors are strongly encouraged to engage either an outside copy editor or SAGE languageservices for assistance prior to submitting a manuscript.
- Manuscripts must be written in standard American English.
- For the review process, manuscripts may follow the formatting and layout criteria of any recognized style (e.g., AMA, APA, Chicago). However, conditionally accepted manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with the current Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, SAGE Publications, and Cornell Hospitality Quarterly Style Guide.
- There are no absolute word count requirements, but target lengths for regular articles are 8,000 to 12,000 words and for research notes are 3,000 to 5,000 words all inclusive.
- All author identification must be removed from the manuscript.
- The writing style should be direct, vigorous, in the active voice, and employ simple declarative sentences.
Manuscripts must be submitted electronically at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cq. Submitted manuscripts are first read by the editor for general acceptability. If a manuscript is perceived to be a potential fit for the journal, the editor solicits the opinions of two or three reviewers. The review is double blind—reviewers do not know the identity of the author and vice versa. After the reviewers submit their recommendations, the editor makes a final decision regarding publication. Every effort is made to complete this first round of reviews within three months. If the editor decides that a manuscript may be suitable, but a definitive decision cannot be made at that time, the author is invited to revise and resubmit the manuscript.
Authors of manuscripts rejected by another journal can submit revisions of those rejected papers to CQ along with supplemental files containing the previous editorial decision and reviews, a detailed response to those editor and reviewer comments, and the original version of the paper that was rejected. If the reviews are sufficiently thoughtful and helpful, CQ’s editor will base his decision on the previous editorial letter, reviews, response and revision without seeking additional reviews.
Manuscripts that are revised and resubmitted are normally handled by the editor without seeking additional input from the reviewers. However, revisions may be sent back to the original set of reviewers, or to a new set of reviewers, on rare occasions when the editor believes that their expertise will help him make a better decision. Regardless of whether or not a revision is sent back out for review, the editor may request an additional revision, which is once again subject to the same revise and resubmit process.
Authors do not have to do everything suggested by the editor and reviewers. However, they must give serious consideration to all editor and reviewer comments and must prepare a detailed, point-by-point response to those comments describing the changes prompted by each comment or explaining why a comment prompted no changes. Revised manuscripts and detailed responses to editor and reviewers must be resubmitted at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cq.
After a manuscript has been edited, the author receives a final draft approval and a page proof prior to publication. The CQ reserves the right to suspend publication of a manuscript at any time if it fails to meet required standards. All accepted manuscripts appear on Cornell Hospitality Quarterly OnlineFirst prior to print publication.
Questions concerning the submission process, the status of a submission, or developing a manuscript for the CQ can be directed to the managing editor, Michael Lynn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
