The objective of NJT is to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academia, research institutions and persons concerned with the complex role of tourism in society. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of tourism. The international dimension of Nordic countries is emphasised in order to cover different tourism themes within this specific geographic area and for other destinations, e.g. Mediterranean countries.
NJT is of interest to professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers working in the fields of tourism/services marketing, and provides a vehicle for them to disseminate information and learn from each other's work.
NJT publishes original empirical papers, insightful essays and practices, in-depth case studies, review papers, meta-analyses that result in theories and models, and book reviews. Special issues devoted to important topics will occasionally be published.
