Dear Colleagues, The field of Energy/Environmental/Government/Tourism Economics has been constantly changing and that green energy/tourism research has a rapidly evolving structure. Although numerous energy/tourism economics studies have been published, the comprehensive intellectual improvement process of the energy/tourism economics field in energy/tourism study is not well depicted due to lack of green energy/tourism studies in this field. Therefore, a need exists for green studies that reveal the intellectual structure of the field. Such studies are valuable in terms of indicating the significance of the field, the development trend, showing the extent to which issues need to be studied in the future, and guiding the improvement of the field. Also, green energy/tourism studies assist to reflect the research trends in that field and indicate the research trend in a particular field. The results of this research may advance knowledge and understanding in the general area of the green energy/government/environmental /tourism research field. Also, it provides a useful information for energy innovators/researchers to improve and improve their research plan/experience. Especially, knowledge of green energy/tourism research can help increase positive green energy/tourism research projects, such as sharing economy, open innovation, sustainability, innovation and technology. Contributions can be represented by original research papers or review papers. Due to editorial procedure, between the first submission in the electronic system and the publication, it takes at least one year for such a Special Issue to be published. However, the online version of the accepted papers will be available one month after acceptance. The issue, collecting all articles, will then be printed at least one year after the submission deadline.
