For Authors

Preparing Files for Online Submission

Manuscripts must be in English and must begin with a title page that includes the names, e-mail addresses, and affiliations of all authors and an abstract.

File formats

We accept papers in PDF, Word, or RTF format. The author's name should not appear in the manuscript file or file name. While this journal does not have a strict word limit policy, we ask that autors try to remain within the minimum of 4,500 words and not exceed approximately 10,000 -20,000 words, exclusive of References, Endnotes, Figures and Tables, etc. The Abstract, Acknowledgements, Text, References and Endnotes should be double-spaced.

File contents

Manuscripts are preferred as separate files for text and for figures. Alternatively, you may submit a single file with figures, tables, and images included in the main document. You must also submit a cover letter in a second file, either in the same format as your main text file or in plain text format.

How to submit your article

All submissions should include a cover letter, a manuscript file and optional supplementary information files. Articles should be submitted using our online submission system. Using this system, authors can upload manuscript files (text, figures and Supplementary Information, including video) and check on the status of their manuscript.

We do not accept submissions by post or email. Details of what files you need to provide can be found below. You will also be asked to supply the names and contact details of all co-authors. Your submission will be acknowledged as soon as possible - please contact the journal editorial office if you have not received an acknowledgement within five working days.

Initial Submission

Cover letter

We expect that author(s) will provide a cover letter. In this cover letter, the author(s) should include the affiliation and contact information for the corresponding author. Authors should also give a concise statement about the importance of the work and explain why it is considered appropriate for the diverse readership of Journal of Tourism Resilience. We also ask that you express any prior discussions with a JTR editor about the work described in the manuscript.

Initial format requirements

Formatting requirements

There are no strict formatting requirements but all manuscripts must contain the essential elements needed to convey your manuscript, for example Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Conclusions, Artwork and Tables with Captions.

If your article includes any Videos and/or other Supplementary material, this should be included in your initial submission for peer review purposes. We ask that you divide the article into clearly defined sections.


Papers submitted to the JTR should be accessible to non-specialists; you should ensure that your findings are communicated clearly. Although a shared basic knowledge of the subject may be assumed, please bear in mind that the language and concepts that are standard in one subfield may be unfamiliar to colleagues working in another area. Thus, technical jargon should be avoided as far as possible and clearly explained where its use is unavoidable. Abbreviations should be kept to a minimum and should be defined at their first occurrence. The background, rationale and main conclusions of the study should be clearly explained. Titles and abstracts in particular should be written in language that will be readily intelligible to any scientists.

The JTR will not reject papers on the basis of poor language. However, if you would like assistance with writing your manuscript, you can consider asking colleagues for their input and/or use a professional editing service. The use of a language editing service has no bearing on editorial decisions and is not a requirement for publication.


The JTR have no strict requirements on reference formatting for a paper’s submission. We do, however, maintain that whatever referencing style is chosen must be consistently used throughout the paper. Most referencing styles will require that the author(s) name(s), journal title/book title, chapter title/article title, year of publication, volume number/book chapter and the article number or pagination, where applicable, be present. We encourage the use of DOIs and URLs.

Figures and tables

Please ensure the figures and the tables included in the single file are placed next to the relevant text in the manuscript, rather than at the bottom or the top of the file. The corresponding caption should be placed directly below the figure or table.
