eIJTUR will present theoretical, substantive and methodological material. Theoretically it will explore the forces shaping individual and societal time-use. Substantively it will examine issues in the labour market (including new forms of work arrangements), personal, household, family, educational and leisure activities, and the context in which they occur. Contextual dimensions of interest might include studies of the occurrence of multiple simultaneous activities, the location of activities, co-presence, as well as subjective dimensions such as enjoyment, tension and choice. Material across a wide range of disciplines and approaches will be sought and presented. Methodologically the journal will seek and present research on issues relating to time-use data collection, via time use diaries, stylized questionnaires or other approaches and to time-use analysis and presentation.
