Peer Review Process
At an early stage after submission the editors reserve the right to reject papers that do not follow the guidelines or that in the view of the editors are either of insufficient quality, or do not fit in the subject areas of Tourism and Management. Papers that, in the editors' view, are of sufficient quality and are relevant to the subject areas of the journal are sent to reviewers.

The journal uses the double-blind system for peer-review; both reviewers and authors identities remain anonymous. Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two independent reviewers, who are experts in the topic of the paper. The entire review process averages 5 weeks. Additionally, the paper will be also reviewed by one of the editors of the journal, who may also ask for improvements. Texts in English are also subject to linguistic control. Papers will be approved for publication if:
1. Their evaluation by both reviewers and editor is considered good, very good or excellent;
2. Authors implement successfully all improvements asked/suggested by the reviewers and editor and present a report of the implemented changes. And these improvements are checked and approved by the editor and/or reviewers.

**For all manuscripts non-discriminatory language is mandatory. Sexist or racist terms should not be used.
