This paper argues that the lack of a journal ranking system ultimately works against the best interests of tourism academia. Few tourism journals are included in any ranking system, which in turn, may foster a culture of research mediocrity. The implementation of a fair system will set unambiguous standards and targets for all stakeholders, benefitting the academic community and journal publishers alike.
