The aim of this study is to analyse the intellectual, conceptual, and social structure of the papers published in the Tourism Management (TM) journal. The paper uses a bibliometric analysis, studying the scientific production and the impact of TM, the main cited journals as well as the journals citing TM, the most productive countries and universities, the most cited authors and publications and the topics of the conceptual structure. The results of the analysis allow us to define the strategic journey undertaken by various editorial boards that have occurred over the years. Findings provide insights into the tourism industry’s corporate governance actors and future research and directions for both the scientific community and experts in the tourism industry.
