 TITLE:         Tourism and hospitality research journals: cross-citations
among research communities
AUTHOR  Howey RM, Savage KS, Verbeeten MJ, Van Hoof HB

 Document type: Article    Language: English    Cited References: 10
Times Cited: 0

This article explores one facet of the relationship between the academic
disciplines of hospitality and tourism. Citation
analysis of articles in hospitality and tourism journals confirms previous
research that reveals that there is little
intermingling of research between the hospitality and tourism fields. More
citations occur within disciplines than across
disciplines. However, by far the most citations are to sources outside the
hospitality and tourism areas entirely.
Implications of these results are discussed. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd.
