In general terms, ET aims at:

*Disseminating and promoting research, good practice and innovation in all aspects of tourism to its prime audience, including educators, researchers, post-graduate students, policymakers, and industry practitioners.

*Encouraging international scientific cooperation and understanding, and enhancing multi-disciplinary research across all tourism sectors.

More specific aims (or themes of special interest to be addressed) are the following:

*The journal is specially conceived as a cross-cultural endeavour for building academic bridges between Europe and other continents. Therefore, papers with this focus are especially welcomed.

*Research that has the potential to inspire and enlighten responsible decision-making, policy-making, stakeholder engagement, and social and environmental business practices in the field of tourism will be particularly welcomed.

*Applied researches on small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are also of particular interest.
