Academic publications

We continually publish our findings of tourism futures research in international journals, books and reports. We also have our own journal, Journal of Tourism Futures, through which our tourism experts as well as external researchers inform a broad audience about their research. Our research publications engage with major global tourism themes viewed through a futurist lens and are written and researched in-house by our researchers supported by contributions from qualified academic experts.
