International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage (Debut Announcement)
I am very honored to serve as an Industry Advisor on the Editorial Board of the following new publication: International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage. Below is the inaugural announcement of the online journal- Kevin J. Wright
We are delighted to announce that the International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage is now LIVE at http://arrow.dit.ie/ijrtp
This is a high-quality, online, international, free, open access, double blind reviewed publication which deals with all aspects of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage.
We have a highly prestigious Editorial Board in place for this timely publication and feel it has enormous potential to explore emerging debates and theories in this interesting area of academic discourse. We feel that the use of a professional, online platform which democratically allows free access to all of our published papers is the responsible way to disseminate our materials.
The journal takes an interdisciplinary, international approach and includes all aspects of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage. It is inclusive of all denominations, religions, faiths and spiritual practices. The journal's online platform facilitates a truly integrative approach. While the main emphasis is on primary research articles, it also welcomes suitably relevant discussion papers, research / review pieces, industry focused case studies and evaluations, management guides and reports, economic evaluations, book reviews, announcements of forthcoming meetings etc. Papers / articles should be relevant to both academics and practitioners
Papers can include a variety of media elements including audio and visual files, a range of image formats and hyperlinks to websites and other online resources.
At the moment the website can receive submissions and the ‘behind the scenes’ software for reviewing is almost finished, there are some edits being finalized and some updating to be done, but we are open for business.
Please visit the site, feel free to contact us for further details and broadcast far and wide.
