The Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Research (JHTR) is an international scholarly research journal that publishes high-quality, refereed articles that advance the knowledge base of the hospitality and tourism field. JHTR focuses on original research, both conceptual and empirical, that clearly contributes to the theoretical development of our field. The word contribution is key. Simple applications of theories from other disciplines to a hospitality or tourism context are not encouraged unless the authors clearly state why this context significantly advances theory or knowledge. JHTR encourages research based on a variety of methods, qualitative and quantitative .Criteria for evaluation include significance in contributing new knowledge, conceptual quality, appropriate methodology, technical competence (of theoretical argument and/or data analysis), and clarity of exposition.

To promote the exchange of current and innovative ideas, JHTR also includes a Research Notes and Industry Viewpoints section. This section will publish short articles that report advances in methodology, exploratory research findings or extensions/discussions of prior research, as well as industry practitioners' viewpoints on hospitality research. JHTR will also accept high quality review articles that address important topics and advance theoretical knowledge or thinking about key areas of hospitality or tourism. Finally, JHTR will welcome commentary in response to published articles.

  • Manuscript Submission Guidelines:

    Manuscripts submitted to JHTR should be original contributions not under consideration for any other publication at the same time. If an article is under consideration by another publication, authors should clearly indicate this at the time of submission.

    Manuscripts should normally not exceed 7,000 words and must be written in English. Articles for the Viewpoints and Commentary, Publications in Review, and Research Notes and Industry Viewpoints sections should not exceed 3,000 words. The Rejoiners section of the journal is intended to publish short articles, commentaries, and rebuttals on the contents of JHTR. Authors should submit such contributions immediately after each issue of JHTR appears so that they are published in the subsequent issue.

    Manuscripts should be typed double-spaced, including references. Manuscripts should be submitted via Manuscript Central at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jhtr. The author’s name should not appear anywhere except on the cover page (to preserve anonymity during the review process). All general editorial formats, abbreviations, use of statistics in text, citations, and references should conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition).

    On the first page please include name of author(s) and title; author(s) note, including present position, complete address, telephone/fax numbers, e-mail address, and any acknowledgement of financial or technical assistance.

    The second page should feature the title of paper (without author’s name), a list of no more than six keywords that define the subject matter, and a brief abstract of no more than 150 words substantively summarizing the article.

    Body. The text, with major headings centered on the page and subheadings flush with the left margin. Major headings should use all uppercase letters; side subheadings should be typed in upper and lowercase letters.

    Tables and Figures. Each table or figure should be prepared on a separate page and grouped together at the end of the manuscript. The data in tables should be arranged so that columns of like materials read down, not across. Nonsignificant decimal places in tabular data should be omitted. The tables and figures should be numbered in Arabic numerals, followed by brief descriptive titles. Authors should indicate in text where tables and figures should appear.

    Additional details should be footnoted under the table not in the title. In the text, all illustrations and charts should be referred to as figures. Figures must be clean, crisp, black-and-white, camera-ready copies. Please avoid the use of gray-scale shading; use hatchmarks, dots, or lines instead.

    References. References should be typed double-spaced in alphabetical order by author’s last name and should appear in APA style.

    Reference List Style. List references alphabetically, principal author’s surname first, followed by publication date in parentheses. The reference list should be typed double-spaced, with a hanging indent, on a separate page. Do not number references. Be sure that all titles cited in the text appear in the reference list and vice versa. Please see the specific examples below.
