Author Guidelines

Manuscript Submission Procedure
Manuscripts submitted to AJHTM must be original and should provide practical implications for tourism and/or hospitality management. Once a manuscript is submitted to AJHTM, it implies that it is an original work which has not been submitted elsewhere. Manuscripts should be submitted in electronic form and by email to the Editor-in-Chief (EIC). Once manuscripts are received, they would be submitted to a first round of review by the editorial board and could be rejected at that stage. Once the paper passes through the first stage successfully, it will be forwarded to two (2) reviewers for peer evaluation. The process will be double blind. Feedback regarding the submission of a manuscript (including the reviewers’ comments) will be provided to the author(s) within six weeks of the receipt of the manuscript.


Manuscript Length
Research Papers and practitioner papers should not be longer than 10,000 words and not shorter than 4000. However, reviews should not be longer than 2000 words and not shorter than 1000. Additionally, abstracts should not be longer than 150 words.


Manuscript Style & Preparation
Final submissions for publication must conform to a template to be provided by the Editorial Board.  Generally, manuscripts must contain the following:   

  • A suitable title of not more than 14 words.
  • An abstract and five (5) keywords
  • Text should be written in Times New Roman letters, font size 12, double-spaced and have at least 2,5 cm (one-inch) margin on all four sides.
  • Tables, figures and plates are to be included in the text and must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers). Each table, figure or illustration must have a title.
  • The text should be organized under suitable subheadings which be in initial caps and font size 14
  • Author(s) have ultimate responsibility in ensuring that their manuscripts are clearly written in acceptable, scholarly English, and contain no factual inaccuracies, libelous statements, spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. Neither the Editorial Board nor the Publisher is responsible for correcting errors of spelling or grammar.

 Manuscript Presentation
For submission, manuscripts of research papers and practitioner papers should be arranged in the following order of presentation:

  • First page: title, author(s’) name(s), affiliation, full postal address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address. An abstract of not more than 150 words and up to 5 keywords that identify article content.
  • Subsequent pages: the paper should begin on the second page and authors should ensure that their names cannot be identified anywhere in the text. These pages should include the main body of the article (including tables, figures and plates); list of references and appendixes should be numbered consecutively.

Referencing Style
In the text, references should follow the APA style (7th Edition).
