Call for Case Studies - Innovative and Promising Practices in Sustainable Tourism

Deadline for submissions extended to June 30, 2020.

Case studies are a valuable way to synthesize and share lessons learned to create new knowledge and enhanced applications in practice. The National Extension Tourism (NET) Design Team and the VIU World Leisure Centre of Excellence are inviting submissions of case studies that highlight innovative and promising practices in sustainable tourism. The intent of the volume is to provide an opportunity for academics, extension professionals, industry stakeholders, and community practitioners to reflect, discuss and share the innovative approaches that they have taken to develop sustainable tourism in a variety of different contexts. 

The first volume of this publication was announced in October 2019. The volume will be shared widely via the National Extension Tourism website and by VIU WLCE as an open source publication for faculty, students, and practitioners. This is a peer-reviewed publication opportunity by VIU Publications and it will be housed on the Vancouver Island University institutional repository (VIURRSpace). The volume will be released by July 2021. Authors will also have an opportunity to share their cases via a special session at the Sustainable Tourism and Outdoor Recreation Conference which will be held November 7-10th, 2021 in Savannah, Georgia, USA.  

Expressions of interest accepted by June 30th, 2020

Full case study to be submitted by October 15th, 2020.

Editors: Nicole Vaugeois, Miles Phillips, Doug Arbogast, and Danny Twilley.
