How to publish in this journal


The Journal of Ecotourism is the world's only international journal that focuses specifically on ecotourism and nature-based tourism, and it is considered to be the leading source for knowledge on these topics. The Journal of Ecotourism seeks to advance the field by examining the social, economic, and ecological aspects of ecotourism at a number of scales, and including regions from around the world. The Journal welcomes conceptual, theoretical, and empirical research, particularly where it contributes to the dissemination of new ideas and models of ecotourism planning, development, management, and good practice. While the focus of the Journal rests on a type of tourism based principally on tourists’ interest in the natural history of destinations, and how these events are planned, developed and managed, the Journal also considers papers that investigate ecotourism as part of a broader nature-based tourism. Papers will also be accepted on related forms of tourism like wildlife tourism, responsible tourism, and moral issues in ecotourism and nature-based tourism contexts. More specifically, papers will be considered that investigate issues related to community development, ecotourism typologies, parks and protected areas, impacts, policy, accreditation and certification, risk management, marketing, interpretation and education, poverty alleviation and issues of justice and rights through ecotourism, and the range of ethical issues tied to the use of animals in ecotourism and nature-based tourism.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
