ABET, Vol. 11, Single Issue (2021): Current Topics in Tourism and Thematic Section: “Tourism in times of COVID-19”

Os recentes surtos de vírus ocorridos recentemente em Wu-Han (China) não apenas mostraram a vulnerabilidade da indústria do turismo, mas também impediram o mundo. Especialistas e colegas de todos os especialistas têm sido calorosamente debatidos sobre os efeitos da COVID-19 na indústria do turismo, assim como sobre o futuro da pesquisa turística. Para algumas vozes, a doença de Coronavirus deve ser considerada como uma oportunidade válida para um mundo mais sustentável (Gossling, Scott & Hall, 2020; Higgins-Desbiolles, 2020; Prideaux, Thompson & Pabel 2020) enquanto para outras representa um sério desafio para o futuro da indústria (Korstanje 2020). Além desta discrepância, a COVID19 tem sido ampla e rapidamente difundida através dos modernos meios de mobilização e transporte que conectaram áreas geográficas dispersas em horas. Basicamente, e em semanas, o vírus -originalmente disseminado na China- chegou à Europa e aos EUA. Em quase um mês, a doença se expandiu para o resto da América Latina e África, afetando todas as nações da Terra. A pandemia infelizmente deixou 665.231 mortes, infectando quase 17.040.985 (números atualizados em julho). Embora os governos adotassem táticas e estratégias diferentes, elas consistiram em várias restrições às mobilidades e ao turismo global, tais como o cancelamento de todos os vôos de entrada, das fronteiras nacionais, bem como do espaço aéreo, e a imposição de um bloqueio que impedia internamente o trânsito de pessoas. Um dos países mais castigados foram os EUA (152.945 vítimas), seguido pelo Brasil (88.792 vítimas), Reino Unido (45.961), México (44.876), Itália (35.129) e Espanha (28.441), para citar apenas alguns. O que é mais importante, a COVID-19 introduziu a indústria do turismo em uma crise sem paralelo, que hoje necessita de pesquisas interdisciplinares para encontrar estratégias de sucesso pós-pandêmicas para uma rápida recuperação. Por causa disso, esta seção temática reune trabalhos de pesquisadores profissionais, acadêmicos, estudantes de pós-graduação e formuladores de políticas, que apresentam seus avanços com um forte foco nos efeitos e conseqüências do Coronavírus no turismo e na hospitalidade.

Purpose of the special issue

 

The recent virus outbreaks recently occurred in Wu-Han (China) not only has shown the vulnerability of the tourism industry but also stopped the world. Specialists and colleagues of all pundits have been debated hotly on the effects of COVID-19 on the tourism industry as well as the future of tourism research. For some voices, Coronavirus disease should be esteemed as a valid opportunity towards a more sustainable world (Gossling, Scott & Hall, 2020; Higgins-Desbiolles, 2020; Prideaux, Thompson & Pabel 2020) while for other it poses a serious challenge for the future of the industry (Korstanje 2020). Beyond this discrepancy, COVID19 has been widely and rapidly disseminated through the modern means of mobilities and transport which connected dispersed geographical areas in hours. Basically, and in weeks, the virus –originally spread in China- arrived in Europe and the US. In almost a month, the disease expanded to the rest of Latin America and Africa affecting all nations in the earth. The pandemic has unfortunately left 665.231 deaths infecting almost 17.040.985 (numbers updated in July). Although governments adopted different tactics and strategies, they consisted in several restrictions to global mobilities and tourism such as the cancelation of all incoming flights, national borders as well as the airspace, and the imposition of a lock-down which impeded internally the transit of persons. One of the most castigated countries were the US (152.945 victims) followed by Brazil (88.792 victims), the UK (45.961), Mexico (44.876), Italy (35.129) and Spain (28.441) only to name a few. What is more important, COVID-19 ushered the tourism industry in an unparalleled crisis which today needs from the inter-disciplinary research to find success post-pandemic strategies for a rapid recovery. Because of this, the present call for papers invites professional researchers, scholars and policy-makers –without mentioning post-graduate students- to present their advances with a strong focus on the effects and consequences of Coronavirus in tourism and hospitality. The call, also, accepts not only theoretical but also empirically-based approaches.   All papers should be written in English and finely-adapted to APA citation style and dotted with abstract and 5 keywords. Last but not least, papers should be no larger than 5.000 or 6.000 words.  The important dates and deadlines are as follows,
