Local development is highly dependent on the tourism and travel economy, especially in fragile and remote contexts like islands. In this way travel and tourism can bring development and growth as well as negative effects on the local environment and residents. In these geographical contexts, sustainable development approaches are consider pre-eminent in order to reach the optimal development without threatening the sustainability of the destination.
The aim of the
International Journal of Islands Research - IJIR
is to promote an interdisciplinary scientific and technical exchange between international academics and experts on insular contexts.
Papers / articles include a variety of topics which are relevant for island tourism and are suited to many disciplines, including: tourism, economics, policy, environmental management, business development, and more.
Although the main emphasis of the journal is on primary research articles, we also welcome relevant discussion papers, research / review pieces, working papers, case studies, management guides and reports, economic evaluations and book reviews.
