Call for Encyclopedia Entries: Submit your 200 words proposal for an entry on by 30 September 2020.




We are delighted to welcome you as a contributor to the Encyclopedia of Tourism Management and Marketing. Edited by Professor Dimitrios Buhalis, this will be a comprehensive Encyclopedia that will cover all aspects of Tourism Management and Marketing. It will serve as a defining reference work in the field for years to come. These guidelines will serve as a useful reference point as you come to prepare your entry, and please do follow them closely.

Scope of the Encyclopedia:

The Encyclopedia of Tourism Marketing and Management will define the field over the coming years as a key reference. The Encyclopedia will consist of between 150 and 200 alphabetically-ordered entries, covering cutting-edge topics. The Encyclopedia will be published in print, as an eBook on all of the major eBook aggregators, and will also be made available on Elgaronline, the content management platform. Our Encyclopedia program is naturally at home in such an online setting, which allows for sophisticated search functionality as well as direct linking to references and sources through XML coding. As a result of a high-profile presence, Elgaronline ensures our books enjoy significantly enhanced dissemination, readership, usage and impact.


The Encyclopedia of Tourism Management and Marketing will be edited and overseen by Professor Dimitrios Buhalis at the University of Bournemouth.
