Published/Hosted by IP Publishing. ISSN: 1354-8166.

Tourism Economics, published quarterly, covers the business aspects of tourism in the wider context. It takes account of constraints on development, such as social and community interests and the sustainable use of tourism and recreation resources, and inputs into the production process. The definition of tourism used includes tourist trips taken for all purposes, embracing both stay and day visitors. Articles address the components of the tourism product (accommodation; restaurants; merchandizing; attractions; transport; entertainment; tourist activities); and the economic organization of tourism at micro and macro levels (market structure; role of public/private sectors; community interests; strategic planning; marketing; finance; economic development). Core subject areas: forecasting, public policy (strategies, fiscal and other intervention policies), economic development, market structures and competition, sources of capital provision, labour economics (quality and productivity issues), business aspects of marketing, private and public sector interaction, economic appraisal at sector and project level, mathematical modelling, developments in the components of the product, structure of the tourism industry (including such issues as ownership, corporate size, international operations, etc), regional economic effects of tourism developments, analysis of international data on tourism, such as WTO statistics. Each issue of the journal also includes a section entitled ëDatabankí, which provides summary and analysis of the latest tourism data. This varies from statistics on the global picture to those related to a particular world region (as defined by the WTO). Databank provides an invaluable tool for the tourism researcher.
