Téoros publishes scientific articles, review articles and, to a lesser extent, essays. The plan of the article should include an introduction, a presentation of the problem addressed by a literature review, the method used to answer the research question, a presentation of the results, a discussion, and a conclusion.

It is important to note that the two anonymous reviewers tasked with reading and commenting on the manuscript must do so with regard to specific points. In particular, they must comment on the relevance and originality of the article, on the research problem and objectives, on the description of the methodology and research techniques, on the presentation of the conceptual framework (discipline, theoretical framework), and on the quality of the documentation and validity of the results. They are also asked to judge the construction of the article in terms of the introduction, the general structure, and the conclusion.

The members of the editorial board are aware that tourism studies touch several disciplines and that not all of them have the same editorial approaches. Téoros remains very open to other constructions of scientific articles. When such a case arises, the evaluators are so informed. However, the article in question must correspond to the prevailing scientific requirements and rules of art.

Illustrations and tables

Illustrations (numbering, title, caption or key, and source)

- An illustration is a photograph, drawing, postcard, map, mind map, or other graphic representation.

- Each illustration must be numbered. Example: Illustration 1.

- It must absolutely be accompanied by a title.

- Each illustration must be referenced with a source or credit for completion and a date.

- A caption or key must be provided.

- The title, caption or key, and source should not be added to the illustration.

Illustrations (format)

- Illustrations must be sent as a separate file, not included in the text.

- It must be clearly indicated where the illustration should be placed in the body of the text.

- Accepted formats for photos are TIFF, JPG, or PNG.

- The minimum resolution of the photos must be 72 dpi (dots per pixel). The minimum size is 1500 pixels at its longest point. A file that is less than 200 KB in size will probably not be usable.

- The editorial office reserves the right not to publish an illustration of poor quality.

Illustrations (reproduction rights)

- It is the authors’ responsibility to secure the rights to reproduce illustrations and they must be able to demonstrate to the management office that they have these rights.


- A table consists of a grid of quantitative data or words, organized in columns with a vertical and a horizontal axis.

- The tables, created with the word processing software, can be inserted in the text.

- Each table must be numbered. Example: Table 1.

- Tables must include a title, source, credit, and date of completion.

- A caption or key must be provided.

References, citations, and footnotes
