Call for Papers

 
 

SUBMISSION OF RESEARCH & TECHNICAL PAPERS

 

The underpinning theme of this Forum is to bridge theory and practice in tourism. Therefore, individuals with research and know-how expertise are invited to submit papers for presentation at the 2011 UNWTO Knowledge Network Forum in Portugal. Every submission must be in relation to one of its three sub-themes: (a) Development, (b) Climate Change, and (c) Governance. It is left to the author to show how the paper contributes to the Forum.


The Bridging Processes


1. The Policy Line, with a couple of Delphi rounds to prepare for final debates in Vilamoura, where a UNWTO Algarve Consensus dealing with tourism development, climate change, and governance will be adopted. "Seminal" documents (with an accompanying Delphi questionnaire) are already being circulated among Scientific Committee members.


2. The Academic Line, with research papers on one the above three sub-themes, to be presented in person at the Forum.


3. The Technical Line, with specific cases on the use of energy, recycling, optimization of resources, all in relation to one the above three sub-themes, to be presented in person at the Forum.


Submission Guidelines


All papers should be submitted as email attachments to tourismandscience1@unwto.org. Only one paper per author will be considered. In the case of co-authored submissions, at least one author must be present at the Forum. The first page of each submission must include the title of the paper, the sub-theme of the Forum to which it belongs, name(s) of the author(s), affiliation(s), and postal, telephone and email contact information. The second page starts with a 100-140 word abstract (which ends with four keywords conveying the core subjects covered). The text follows the abstract.

Please use APA style or a format accepted by refereed journals in the field of tourism.
Length: 4,000 to 8,000 words, including tables, figures, and references. Place all tables and charts after the Reference list.

Technical Papers


A format suitable to the nature and scope of the case may be used.
Length: 2,500 to 5,000 words, including tables and figures. If based on company/agency case study, a reference list is not required, but is encouraged.
Place all tables and charts at the end of the paper.


Review Process


All papers will be evaluated by at least two members of the Forum’s Scientific Committee who have expertise in the subject area. Over 100 scholars and administrators serve on this committee (see the list on the website of the Forum).


Submission Deadline: April 30


Acceptance/rejection notification: May 10
