Aims & Scope

The biannual journal Archives of Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Science is an international, scholarly, and refereed periodical aiming to promote and further research in the fields of tourism, hospitality, recreation and physical education. ATHSS is published by Vincent Pol University in Lublin, Poland.

The journal is addressed both to members of the scholarly community dealing with tourism, hospitality, recreation and sport science, as well as business practitioners and professionals. ATHSS aims at creating a platform where representatives of all aforementioned sciences are able to exchange their knowledge and experience, disseminate research findings, achievements and developments, as well as to share their insights in hands-on and case-based reports. The journal Archives of Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Science welcomes original, conceptual or empirical research papers, book reviews, conference reports, case studies, and letters to the editor.

The scope of the research presented in ATHSS is international. All submitted papers are subject to double blind peer review by the members of the Editorial Board and qualified international reviewers. Of special interest are submissions featuring new ideas, tendencies, predictions, hypotheses and achievements within the fields of hospitality, tourism, recreation and physical education as well as related areas relevant to scholars and professionals in these fields.

The  submitted manuscripts are accepted for publication based on the recommendations obtained in an anonymous review process. However, the views expressed in the submitted texts are entirely those of the authors and not necessarily of the Editorial Board and Staff of Archives of Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Science. Criteria for evaluating submissions include the suitability of their content, significance, conceptual focus, clarity of presentation, and quotation of credible sources. Negative reviews are made available to submitting authors. To ensure professional integrity, the journal follows strict policies on unethical activities related to publication of research results.
