I am delighted to announce that my application was successful and that I have been appointed as co-editor for Tourism Planning and Development Journal. It is an exciting, albeit nervous, new season in my academic career and I am looking forward to this challenge. Over the past year, I have published in and have been co-editing a Special Issue in this journal so it is a real privilege to have this opportunity. As a co-editor I will be working with my senior colleagues Professor Richard Sharpley and Professor Marina Novelli.
Tourism Planning and Development (TDP) is an international, ranked, peer-reviewed journal published by Taylor and Francis which aims to;
explore and advance our theoretical and practical understandings of the intersections between tourism, planning and development studies. Each of these fields of study is characterised by rich scholarly and interdisciplinary traditions. TPD seeks to leverage these and other complementary scholarly traditions to build new interdisciplinary understandings in tourism planing and development.
