Trends in tourism research

Ballantyne, Roy and Packer, Jan and Axelsen, Megan ORCID: (2008) Trends in tourism research. Annals of Tourism Research, 36 (1). pp. 149-152. ISSN 0160-7383


The study of tourism as an academic field is a recent phenomenon and, over the last few decades, the field has experienced rapid changes in research focus and methodological sophistication (Xiao and Smith 2006). Tracking these changes provides insights into the growth and development of research in the field, as well as highlighting areas for further attention. This paper extends analyses of the evolution of tourism research (Dann et al 1988; Sheldon 1991; Xiao and Smith 2006) to incorporate a range of journals that have become increasingly influential over the past decade.
