Abstract
This study examines trends in publishing in tourism and hospitality journals over the past 40 years. It places the findings within the context of experiences and inherent dynamism of other disciplines. Exponential growth has been observed in both the number of journals available and number of papers published per annum. The single authored paper is an endangered species and has recently been replaced with the three or more authored paper as the norm. What has been observed in tourism is not unique. Instead, similar patterns have been noted in other disciplines and fields of study as they mature. These findings also offer insights into future direction and research needs at both a field and individual academic level.

"In science ..., novelty emerges only with difficulty, manifested by resistance, against a background provided by expectations."--Thomas Kuhn (2012) Introduction What is an Academic Discipline: Something Old, Something New The term academic (or scientific) discipline can be defined as academic studies that focus on a self-imposed limited field of knowledge. The idea of scientific disciplines is both old and new. Dirks (1996) traces the origins of academic disciplines back to the ancient Greeks, ...

[The abstract of this article is not available. Here are the first sentences of the article. The full text is freely available upon registration] We received with pleasure the letter of Prof. Manfredi, published in the present Reviews in Health Care issue (see pages 137-140), that underlines the problem of the proliferation of authors in HIV-related articles. This is not a new topic. In the last 40 years there has been a dramatic increase, not only in the volume of publications but also in the n...

Abstract Since the first entrepreneurship class—held in 1947—the academic discipline of entrepreneurship's growth is described using a chronology of three domains—courses, supplemental infrastructures and publications. A 100+-item chronology of entrepreneurship education in the USA from 1876 through 1999 is offered and analyzed. The major findings are (1) in the USA, the field has reached maturity and (2) growth is likely outside business schools and outside the USA. The major problems include a...

The purpose of this study was to examine students' beliefs about the nature of knowledge and learning, epistemological beliefs, across domains that vary according to Biglan's classification of academic disciplines (hard vs. soft disciplines and pure vs. applied disciplines). One hundred and fifty-two university students completed three questionnaires that assessed their epistemological beliefs about mathematics (hard-pure), the social sciences (also pure), and business (neither hard nor pure). C...

This paper proposes a seven tiered taxonomy of tourism products in an effort to add some structure to the vast array of offerings available today. The paper adopts a phenetic method to group products hierarchically, using a modified version of the marketing-oriented product hierarchy system. Five broad Need Families are identified including: Pleasure, Personal Quest, Human Endeavour, Nature and Business. They incorporate 27 Product Families and 90 Product Classes.

This paper performs a meta-analysis of tourism performance measurement by synthesising tourism and hospitality research. A framework for understanding and advancing knowledge about tourism performance measurement is presented to overview three important dimensions of the tourism performance measurement literature (unit of analysis, approaches and disciplines). Computer-Aided Text Analysis of 978 articles covering a nineteen-year period, 1996 to 2014, is used to analyse approaches and disciplinar...

This study evaluates bibliometric studies in tourism, depicts emerging themes, and offers critical discussions for theory development and future research. To achieve this aim, 190 papers with bibliometric analyses from leading hospitality and tourism journals were selected and critically analyzed. The research findings reveal that bibliometric articles published in these journals significantly increased after 2008. However, systematic review studies emerged as the major group, and relatively few...

Publishing in high-ranking journals is one of the many critical dimensions by which academic performances of scholars in higher education are measured. Researchers have proposed various approaches in ranking academic journals, although they are inconsistent because of their reliance on either subjective or objective indicators. However, both of these approaches have various advantages and disadvantages and integrating these approaches to completely demonstrate journal performance on various dime...

An academic’s ability to secure external research grants is an important indicator of research performance. However, the method by which to write a successful grant is neither uniform nor standardised, and insights for tourism researchers to write a successful grant application is lacking. The objective of this study is to examine how experienced scholars review research grant applications in order to facilitate a better understanding of grant writing for tourism academics. Four critical factors...
