The Bridging Tourism Theory and Practice book series consists of distinct volumes each of which brings together both conceptual theses and prevalent applications or case studies that inform academics and practitioners on a current or emerging theme.
The aim of the Bridging series is to have academic and industry leaders join forces in their respective fields to discuss, exchange, and debate issues critical to the advancement of tourism; and to inspire a new generation of researchers who can translate scholarly discoveries to deliverable results valuable to practitioners, and who can inform the academics of industry best practices.
The series creates a platform for academics and practitioners to share theories and practices with each other, and serves as a collaborative venue for meaningful exchange and syntheses. It illustrates how theories and practices inform each other; how both have evolved, advanced, and been applied; and how industry best practices have benefited from, and contributed to, theoretical developments.
Key Audiences and Benefits
The Bridging series benefits students, academics, and practitioners who are interested in the exchange of cutting-edge theories and best practices in the interconnected sectors of the tourism system.

- Academics: Bridging offers a library for scholars, particularly those with limited practical experience, to find syntheses of the blended conceptual and empirical literature that contributes to and draws from the industry.
- Practitioners: Bridging serves as a resource room for tourism sectors and government agencies to look for scientific perspectives and best practices; in short, as a tool box that aids in delivering results.
