The Cornell Hospitality Quarterly (CQ) is a peer reviewed, applied, scholarly journal published quarterly in association with Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration and the newly formed Cornell SC Johnson College of Business. CQ aims to be the source of the most important advances in research that is specific to the hospitality industry. Conceptual and empirical papers, case studies, and research notes on any industry-relevant topic, from any discipline and using any methodology are welcome, provided they offer new insights about important industry challenges and issues. We offer constructive, developmental feedback from some of the leading industry experts and thought leaders, and work in a collaborative fashion with authors to ensure that only the highest quality papers are published.
CQ has the following attractive attributes:
- · 2.060 JCR Impact Factor in 2017
- · 15% acceptance rate in 2017
- · 61% desk-rejection rate in 2017
- · 34-day average turnaround time on first submissions sent out for review
The primary objective of the Cornell Hospitality Quarterly is to publish articles that provide timely and actionable prescription for hospitality management research and practice. Specifically, we aim to publish empirical, conceptual, and case study papers that provide new insights about important industry challenges and issues. The content will address a broad range of topics that are relevant to hospitality, travel, tourism, and related contexts, including strategic management, human resources, marketing, finance, real estate, accounting, operational management, facilities and design, information systems and technology, communications, travel and tourism, and general management. All articles will be clearly grounded within an appropriate conceptual foundation, and authors will be able to demonstrate how the current paper extends that which we already know about the focal topic. Only methodologically rigorous work will be considered, and all submissions must present actionable and prescriptive insights that can be used to guide real-world decision making.

Manuscript Preparation Guidelines
Prospective authors should review the following guidelines before submitting a manuscript. Authors are strongly encouraged to engage either an outside copy editor or SAGE languageservices for assistance prior to submitting a manuscript.
- Manuscripts must be written in standard American English.
- For the review process, manuscripts may follow the formatting and layout criteria of any recognized style (e.g., AMA, APA, Chicago). However, conditionally accepted manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with the current Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, SAGE Publications, and Cornell Hospitality Quarterly Style Guide.
- There are no absolute word count requirements, but target lengths for regular articles are 8,000 to 12,000 words and for research notes are 3,000 to 5,000 words all inclusive.
- All author identification must be removed from the manuscript.
- A separate title page (designated as "TItle Page") with the author details should also be uploaded.
- The writing style should be direct, vigorous, in the active voice, and employ simple declarative sentences.
Manuscripts must be submitted electronically at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cq. Submitted manuscripts are first read by the editor for general acceptability. If a manuscript is perceived to be a potential fit for the journal, the editor solicits the opinions of two or three reviewers. The review is double blind—reviewers do not know the identity of the author and vice versa. After the reviewers submit their recommendations, the editor makes a final decision regarding publication. Every effort is made to complete this first round of reviews within three months. If the editor decides that a manuscript may be suitable, but a definitive decision cannot be made at that time, the author is invited to revise and resubmit the manuscript.
Authors of manuscripts rejected by another journal can submit revisions of those rejected papers to CQ along with supplemental files containing the previous editorial decision and reviews, a detailed response to those editor and reviewer comments, and the original version of the paper that was rejected. If the reviews are sufficiently thoughtful and helpful, CQ’s editor will base his decision on the previous editorial letter, reviews, response and revision without seeking additional reviews.
Manuscripts that are revised and resubmitted are normally handled by the editor without seeking additional input from the reviewers. However, revisions may be sent back to the original set of reviewers, or to a new set of reviewers, on rare occasions when the editor believes that their expertise will help him make a better decision. Regardless of whether or not a revision is sent back out for review, the editor may request an additional revision, which is once again subject to the same revise and resubmit process.
Authors do not have to do everything suggested by the editor and reviewers. However, they must give serious consideration to all editor and reviewer comments and must prepare a detailed, point-by-point response to those comments describing the changes prompted by each comment or explaining why a comment prompted no changes. Revised manuscripts and detailed responses to editor and reviewers must be resubmitted at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cq.
After a manuscript has been edited, the author receives a final draft approval and a page proof prior to publication. The CQ reserves the right to suspend publication of a manuscript at any time if it fails to meet required standards. All accepted manuscripts appear on Cornell Hospitality Quarterly OnlineFirst prior to print publication.
Questions concerning the submission process, the status of a submission, or developing a manuscript for the CQ can be directed to the managing editor, J. Bruce Tracey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
