Tourism: Economics, Finance and Management

A section of Journal of Risk and Financial Management (ISSN 1911-8074).

Section Information

This section publishes leading research on tourism economics, finance, and management. It covers the business aspects of tourism in the wider context and takes account of constraints on development, such as social and community interests, global environmental change, and the sustainable use of tourism and recreation resources, and inputs into the production process.

We encourage the submission of articles critically discussing the implications of the growth paradigm in tourism; ecological economic approaches to sustainable tourism; supply and value chain studies of tourism; corporate responsibility and CSR; tourism and appropriate development; comparative analyses of sustainable tourism development between countries and destinations; and the economic organization of tourism at micro and macro levels (market structure, role of public/private sectors, community interests, strategic planning, marketing, finance, and economic development). Both orthodox and heterodox economic contributions are welcome.
