Sobre a Revista

Focus and Scope

ABET is a journal of tourism informed by the social sciences. Alongside traditional perspectives associated with themes of tourism - as well the applied studies of management and tourism economy - ABET dedicates considerable space for theoretical interpretative and critical perspectives. These ones aim to problematize notions taken for granted, thus opening space for multi, trans and interdisciplinary dialogues, in order to produce innovative knowledge, not just about the tourist object (still under construction) but from it. In this way we hope to promote and contribute ultimately to the consolidation of this field of knowledge.

 
Although initially the journal has produced General Editions, from 2014 to now – when there was a change in their periodicity, due the increased demand and interest over ABET, especially by the international audience – the journal started publishing thematic editions, called dossiers, nucleated around conceptual issues, practices and even spatial scales (local, regional, national and even international).
 
The very central idea behind this strategy is to allow more agility and celerity to the publication, as well as offering to the readers l’état de l’art of of tourism knowledge production, in different contexts and times.
 
Scientific research papers, essays, case reports, reviews, and pensatas are accepted, in any of the following languages: Portuguese, English, Spanish or French, as published in the original language of submission.

Anais Brasileiros de Estudos Turísticos - ABET is an open and free access online journal which is quarterly and uses double-blind peer review method of papers’ evaluation. It receives original and unpublished works, since they are not being reviewed in another journal.

ABET has an institutional policy of appraising oriented to receiving and selection of original articles, results of scientific research in tourism, as well as theoretical review articles or theoretical essays about categories and border issues in order to promote and contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge in tourism, either empirical or theoretical level. 

Fundamentally, the vision that guides this journal is to be a national and international reference in the about the State of the art scientific knowledge production in Brazil, bringing together the main contributions of researchers in tourism all around the country, either directly through their articles or indirectly through their participation in the editorial board or as reviewers, making sure to certification and reputation of the paper´s quality and knowledge contributed by the journal.
