Tourism and Sustainable Development Goals – a special virtual issue of Tourism Geographies

Special Virtual Issue of Tourism Geographies

Tourism Geographies is a peer reviewed journal which publishes articles exploring tourism and related areas such as recreation and leisure studies from a geographic perspective. This journal recently published a virtual special issue in support of the Tourism and Sustainable Development Goals Conference which took place at Massey University, New Zealand, 24-25 January 2019.

Guest editor Professor Jarkko Saarinen has chosen a selection of articles related to tourism and sustainable development goals. Many of these articles were freely available to everyone throughout February, but as it is March this will no longer be the case.

The good news for University of Sunderland students is that we have a subscription to Tourism Geographies which means you can access it all the time.

To make accessing these articles very easy we’ve listed below the articles selected by Professor Jarkko Saarinen along with links to access them via the University of Sunderland. All you will need to do is log in with your University User ID and password.
