Journal Name Change: Consumer Behavior in Tourism and Hospitality

Consumer Behavior in Tourism and Hospitality

The editorial team of IJCTHR is thrilled to announce the new title for the journal: Consumer Behavior in Tourism and Hospitality (CBTH)

The new title reflects more clearly the topics that are considered relevant for our journal, focusing on consumer behavior theory, research and practice within tourism and hospitality. The new title is accompanied by a refinement of the aims and scope of the journal, and by an enhancement of the theoretical and methodological rigor. Contributions will also be more closely assessed for their relevance for tourism and hospitality scholars, practitioners, stakeholders, and society at large.

CBTH is an international double-blind peer reviewed journal that especially seeks to nurture multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work offering conceptual and empirical support to advance, deepen, and expand our understanding of consumer behavior in tourism and hospitality.

I am also pleased to announce that the Editorial Team of the journal is growing. With the collaboration of new Associate Editors and more members of the Editorial Advisory Board, CBTH will be able to bring forward novel ideas and improve the workflow. It is our aim to further streamline processes and fasten the timeline for authors. These changes will also increase the diversity of the editorial board, ensuring representation and inclusivity at all levels.

Authors will find in the journal an outlet for sound theoretical and empirical research contributions in the field of consumer behavior in tourism and hospitality. The Editor welcomes contributions from the academic community to make CBTH a distinctive outlet in our scholarly field of research.

CBTH currently considers these submission types:

  • Full-length papers (both empirical and conceptual) – strictly 6500 words including references
  • Research notes (both empirical and conceptual) - strictly 3500 words including references
  • Cutting-edge short commentaries (on contemporary topics and emerging topics) - strictly 1500 words including 15 references.

A number of improvements have already been initiated in the last few years, and now we look forward to more relevant and rigorous submissions that can contribute to fostering a fresh and critical turn to the journal´s direction!

The journal metrics are growing, reflecting higher quality contributions and an upward citation trend and hopefully will soon be positively affected by the title change.
