Tourism and Society Magazine

Our magazine

(ISSN print: 0120-7555; ISSN digital: 2346-206X)

The journal Turismo y Sociedad is an academic space that favors debate, the exchange of ideas and positions on tourism as a complex phenomenon approached from an interdisciplinary perspective with the purpose of investigating the multiple aspects that are part of its essence.

The magazine contributes to the analysis of two fundamental axes of the sector: territories and companies. Territories understood as natural, cultural and symbolic spaces and the tourism service providers that are part of the value chain.
