Welcome: New JHTM Associate Editors

Message from the Editor-in Chief


On behalf of CAUTHE’s Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management (JHTM) I would like to welcome two new associate editors to the editorial board:

  • Dr Xi Y. Leung (University of North Texas)
  • Dr Ching-Hui (Joan) Su (Iowa State University)

We are very pleased to work with both of them, and we know they will add a new disciplinary perspective to the journal and help with the paper review process.

Thank you

I would also like to take the opportunity to offer my heartfelt thanks to Dr Emily Ma (University of Massachusetts System, Boston, Massachusetts) who has recently completed her term of office as associate editor of JHTM.

The JHTM renews its editorial board every two years; in doing so, it always recognises the contributions of reviewers and other contributors of the journal.

The JHTM is growing from strength to strength (SSCI impact factor: 5.959). It is currently ranked as a Q1 journal and number 15th in the ranking of journals in tourism, leisure and hospitality based on the latest CiteScores.
