Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Education (JHTE)

The Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Education (JHTE) is designed to facilitate scholarly interchange among hospitality and tourism educators, industry practitioners and educators from related disciplines. It aims to serve the needs of all levels of hospitality and tourism education through the presentation of issues and opinions pertinent to the field. JHTE is a refereed, premier educational journal of the International Council on Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Education (ICHRIE).

Over the years, the current team of editors, Drs. Miyoung Jeong, Jenny Kim, and Michael Ottenbacher have improved the scholarly impact of the journal. We editors expect its continued growth in the future with the collective effort of JHTE editorial board members.

The journal regularly features:

  • Papers on relevant academic issues
  • Creative and cutting-edge papers through which educators share unique instructional techniques or other innovative approaches in the classroom
  • Empirical papers on teaching and learning evaluation issues
  • Research notes or commentaries addressing current trends and developments related to hospitality and tourism education

In addition, JHTE publishes a special issue. The latest special issue, “Impacts of COVID 19 on Hospitality Tourism Education” is scheduled to be released for fall 2021. The articles are currently available online under “Latest Articles.”
