Visitor Studies: Theory, Research, and Practice
Visitor Studies is the peer-reviewed research journal of the Visitor Studies Assoication, now published by Taylor and Francis. Appearing bi-annually, Visitor Studies publishes high-quality articles, focusing on visitor research, visitor studies, evaluation studies, and research methodologies. The Journal also covers subjects related to museums and out-of-school learning environments, such as zoos, nature centers, visitor centers, historic sites, parks and other informal learning settings.
A primary goal for Visitor Studies is to be an accessible source of authoritative information within the visitor studies field that provides both theoretical and practical insights of relevance to practitioners and scholars. As a secondary goal, Visitor Studies aims to develop its reputation as an international publication.
Contributors to the Journal share their research procedures and findings with practitioners and other researchers. Original and review articles present a forum for new data and provide practical and useful conclusions. Material found in Visitor Studies contributes to the ongoing progress and development of the field.
