ARA Journal of Tourism Research / Revista de Investigación en Turismo


The ARA journal is a publication intended for academic and applied research into tourism and related topics which aims to provide a link between primary research and practice.

The geographic area of the journal’s specific attention is the Caribbean region in its widest sense, including the coastal zones of the Latin American continent bordering the Caribbean Sea. All research articles on other areas in the world with similar or comparable situations are also welcome.

As a professional organ ARA is designed to spread theoretical and practical knowledge of tourism in especially vulnerable environments in order to foment and support sustainable development, conservation and the well-being of the population and natural resources.

It contains different points of view, analysis and opinions based on academic and

innovative studies on tourism and will deal with anthropological, economic, business and educational aspects, both academic and applied, as well as research into biology, geology, environment, geography, history, sociology and any other specialisations of academic and professional relevance for the tourism industry.

The new journal invites researchers of all academic disciplines, such as social sciences, economics, urban, regional and coastal planning, marine and coastal sciences, environmental sciences, leisure and hospitality management to contribute with their work, in particular papers with a multi-disciplinary character.

The journal accepts manuscripts in English and Spanish and the article will be published in the same language as the original manuscript. Its frequency of publication is half-yearly.
