From an inter- and trans-disciplinary perspective, it calls for and encourages writings from the social sciences and administrative-business practice. Its objective is to fulfill the role of a forum for the exposition and discussion of methodologies and theories, as well as the dissemination of studies and experiences. It aims to contribute to efforts to understand tourism and to make progress in ways of preventing its undesirable effects.

Statement on ethics and publication malpractice

The publication of research and method papers after they have been subjected to double-blind peer review is the basic model of our journal PASOS. Revista de Turismo y Patrimonio Cultural |PASOS. Journal of Tourism and Cultural Heritage.

Our ethical regulations are based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

The director and deputy directors of PASOS are responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal will be published. The editor and deputy editors may be guided by the policies of the journal’s editorial and scientific boards and are limited by the legal requirements in force, such as those dealing with defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The director can consult with other editors or reviewers when making this decision. Editors should always evaluate the manuscripts’ intellectual content without distinctions based on the race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality or political philosophy of the authors. The director and all editorial staff must not disclose information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisors and the section editor, if applicable.
Disclosure and conflict of interest: unpublished materials listed on a submitted manuscript must not be used in any research by any member of the editorial team without the express written consent of the author.
PASOS’ reviewers help editors make the decision on whether or not to publish a submitted manuscript. Reviewers are required to treat the manuscript that was received for review confidentially and must not use the information obtained through peer review to personal advantage. Reviewers must consider giving up the review of manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest with any of the authors, companies or institutions related to the document. Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author or authors is not appropriate. Reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting arguments. Where appropriate, reviewers must identify relevant published papers on the theme that have not been quoted by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been previously used in other papers must be accompanied by the corresponding reference. Any reviewer or reader can and should draw the editor’s attention to any similarity or substantial overlaps between the manuscript in question and any other published document of which they are aware.
All people listed as authors must meet certain requirements in order to be named as such. Each author should have had sufficient participation in the work to take public responsibility for its contents. One or more authors should take responsibility and handle all the work from the outset until the article has been published. Giving someone credit as an author should rely solely on substantial contributions regarding: 1) the conception and design of the study or data collection, or data analysis and interpretation; 2) drafting the article or the critical review of a substantial part of its intellectual content; and 3) the final approval of the version to be published. Requirements 1, 2 and 3 must be met cumulatively. Participating only in fundraising or data collection or general supervision of the research group does not justify authorship. The journal directors may ask authors to describe each person’s participation and this information may be published. The other people who contribute to the work and are not authors should be cited in the acknowledgments section. Increasingly often, multi-centre essays are written and attributed to a corporate author. In these cases, all the members of the group listed as authors should fully meet the above-mentioned criteria for authorship. Group members who do not meet these criteria should be listed, with their permission, in the acknowledgments section. The order of the authors’ names will depend on the decision that the co-authors make together. In any case, the authors should be able to explain that decision. Authors must ensure that they have written original works. When authors use materials that are not their own, the sources must be properly quoted. Any attempt to plagiarise will lead to rejection of the submitted manuscript or, if it had not been detected previously, exclusion from the publication and replacement of the reference by “removed for plagiarism”. Authors should not submit the same paper or essentially describe the same research in more than one journal. Submission of the same manuscript to more than one journal constitutes unethical behaviour for the publication unless otherwise specified.
Openly racist or sexist content will not be allowed, nor will any other content that attacks people’s fundamental rights.
Errors in published works: if an author discovers a significant mistake or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or editorial board and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
