Tourism and Shopping Behavior Research
Abstract Submission Deadline: July 15, 2009

The International Journal of Culture, Tourism and Hospitality Research invites submission of manuscripts for a special issue focusing on tourism and shopping behavior. Shopping is an increasingly important element in leisure and tourism. Shopping during travel reflects the increasing emphasis on consumption in modern society, and the importance the acquisition of material goods assumes in many people¡¦s lives. Leisure shopping is recognized as one of the most popular global tourist activities. In some destinations (e.g., Hong Kong and Paris) shopping has become a core activity of the tourist attraction where tourism is contributing significantly to the retail trade. This call for papers is an invitation to authors to contribute advances to the existing literature on shopping behavior of tourists.
