Article NGOs and the making of “development tourism destinations”
The Zeitschrift für Tourismuswissenschaft – Journal of Tourism Science – continues the tradition of profound scientific discourse in the German-speaking world. The journal focuses on multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary issues concerning touristic phenomena. In this connection, the journal is geared towards researchers and practitioners in search of substantiated information about tourism-related problems. The articles, which are of a qualitative and quantitative nature, are aimed at basic research or reflect the findings of applied research.
In addition to publishing scientific essays from all kinds of sub-disciplines (in particular history, geography, communication and media studies, cultural sciences, ethnology, cultural anthropology, methodology/statistics, ecology, psychology, sociology, economics, business administration and education), the journal also presents project reports, book reviews and conference reports.
The Zeitschrift für Tourismuswissenschaft therefore aims to
act as a forum for tourism scientists from all kinds of disciplines (social and cultural sciences, economic sciences and environmental science)
support interaction between these disciplines
promote young researchers and
raise awareness among the general public of the need for scientific tourism research.
Two issues are published each year; individual issues may be dedicated to specific key topics. Specific subjects may also be addressed in additional special issues. In its meeting on 7 February 2011, the Scientific Advisory Board of the Association of Geographers at German Universities (VGDH) resolved to include the ‘Zeitschrift für Tourismuswissenschaft’ (tw) in its list of recognised geography journals. It was included in category 2 of scientific journals (without ISCI listing).
Manuscripts on any tourism-relevant topic can be submitted at any time regardless of the various calls for papers for special issues (see "Call for papers" menu item).
