Information Technology & Tourism
Inform Tech Tourism
Information Technology & Tourism is the first scientific journal dealing with the exciting relationship between information technology and tourism. Information and communication systems embedded in a global net have profound influence on the tourism and travel industry. Reservation systems, distributed multimedia systems, highly mobile working places, electronic markets, and the dominant position of tourism applications in the Internet are noticeable results of this development. And the tourism industry poses several challenges to the IT field and its methodologies. Advances in the use and development of tools, technologies, and methodologies that have facilitated the efficient netting of information and communication systems in tourism and travel are to be presented and discussed within this journal. Information Technology & Tourism aims to contribute to the process of theory building, and hence to the advancement of research and scholarship in this growing field. As an interdisciplinary journal it can be placed between information technology and tourism research where both fields may influence each other. The need for such a dialogue and scholarship can be reasoned by the growing number of TIS conferences worldwide that each year attract a very large and growing audience. Information Technology & Tourism focuses on academia as well as industry. It will feature both empirical case studies and technical-theoretical papers looking at tourism from an IT point of view and at IT from a tourism point of view, a treatment quite attractive for researchers in both fields.
