We are delighted to announce that the scholarly journal Research in Transportation Business Management (RTBM) will publish a themed volume on Cruise Shipping, Ports, and Destinations containing selected papers presented at the Cartagena Cruise Dialogue 2020.
Selected papers presented at #cruisedialogue2020, to be held in Cartagena, Colombia are expected to be selected for inclusion in the themed Volume, with the emphasis being on those papers contributing on how best to accommodate the seemingly unstoppable growth of cruise activities.
RTBM themed volumes contain 10-15 or more papers allowing flexibility for a decision on the number of papers to be included in the Themed Volume based on the quality of studies presented. Submission of manuscript along the timeline of publication is also vital.
