Author Guidelines

Style and presentation rules to submit a manuscript: 

Please go to the top navigation bar and click on INSOLE OF REFERENCE. A file with the detailed norms of style together with another containing a sample are available. Be aware that the ISO 690:1987 system of citations in text and reference format has to be followed, as indicated in the template provided. The suggestions for writing academic papers issued by the International Academy of the Study of Tourism are also included: authors are invited to consider them carefully. 

General overview:

a) Manuscripts must be written in acceptable, scholarly English (US or UK spelling is permissible, but not a combination of both). Neither the Editorial Board nor the publisher is responsible for correcting errors of spelling, grammar and punctuation.  

b) To ensure anonymous review, authors should not identify themselves directly or indirectly in their manuscripts.  The anonymity of both authors and reviewers will be guaranteed.         

c) The paper should be as concise as possible, although not at the expense of clarity. The maximum recommended length is 10.000 words, including all types of tables, figures, illustrations, acknowledgements and references.

d) The font to be used is Arial letter, size 12.

e) The manuscript must have 25 mm (one-inch) margin on all four sides and be written with one and a half line spacing.

f) Separate paragraphs must be indented 5 mm left in the first line.

g) Pages must be numbered consecutively at the bottom centre.

h) If acronyms are used, their full expression should be given at their first occurrence.

i) Electronic submission through the online platform is compulsory. The software for submission is Microsoft Word. For technical assistance, please contact Ms Eva García:

j) The submission of a paper implies the originality of the work presented, which means that it has not been published already nor submitted anywhere else. 

k) It is the authors' responsibility to obtain permission from the copyright owner to use quotations, illustrations, figures and the like from any other source.

l) Manuscripts must not contain libellous connotations.    

Please consult the section "Publication Ethics and Malpractice" for more details.
