Questions related to Tourism Research
Now I am working on one of my research papers related to cross-border tourism development cooperation. I am looking for a suitable method and model for it.
Hi, I am seeking your help in finding an applicable tourism research topic, I am super interested in the field and application for Tented / Temporary / Hybrid Structures.
And I am currently thinking about the question of " Do temporary room structures offer potential to harvest peak demand?"
I am very interested in your opinion if you think that semi-temporary structures like Tented Camp´s can make a difference in the industry and will continue to trend in a post COVID world?
I am looking forward to the discussion
Is anyone conducting research on ex-students’ motivation for re-visiting places of study? Previous research (e.g. by Jing Bill Xu and Songshan Sam Huang, 2018) has focused on current non-local students’ intentions of visiting places of study in the future.
What about non-local ex-students (including international degree and exchange students) returning to places of study for visits several years later? Visiting familiar places and previous homes is a fascinating research topic, imo. If anyone is interested, I’ve got a piece of qualitative data (own autoethnographic account) to share.

my project is a recommendation system for tourism and I need a dataset by which I will find out the similarities between users and recommend some places to them...
I am setting up a database on a random sample of french tour operators/travel agencies, with the goal to see how they adapted to challenges like new forms of tourism and social media, and would benefit from a co-author, especially for the mathematical analysis. The informations I am compiling are quite diverse so the goal is not set in stone if it looks like something else would be more appropriate. You don't have to know French as this independent study would preferably be in English. Any thoughts are appreciated.
According to the push-pull model, “people travel because they are pushed into making travel decisions by internal forces, and pulled by external forces of the destination attributes” (Walker & Walker, 2010). In other words, push factors create a desire within an individual to go on a trip, while pull factors help that individual select an appropriate destination (Goossens, 2000). Using the push-pull model as a foundation, Fetscherin and Stephano (2016) developed a “medical tourism index.” The index is comprised of four factors: country environment, tourism destination, medical tourism costs, and medical facilities and services.
Also S. P. John and R. Larke (2016) published an article to analyse medical tourism researches which are focused on pull and push motivators
What is your opinion for pull & push motivators in medical tourism?

This is not conventional forensic science; it is about forensic-type methods used in the social sciences, including geography, with special reference to cultural heritage.
My research paper deals with use conflicts in tourism (such as conflicts over natural ressources, social conflicts due to tourism), and I'm trying to find some articles / books about the creation of these conflicts. I would like to focus on one part on the fact that maybe some conflicts existed before the development of tourism, and tourism made them worst. I am wondering if tourism is not more like the straw that broke the camels back, than the real reason that provoked the emergence of conflicts.
In my recent study i realized that ecotourism resources are scattered in my study area, and with that, am suspected that economic growth, ecological and environmental pressure in these locations might be affected either positive or negative. Therefore, i need literature in relation to tourism and ecotourism and the implications of their spatial distributions.
In the religious country like India where the, majority of tourist travel across the country with intention of worshipping, rituals and other religious activities. The project is intended to explore whether food quality matters under such situations.
I have been looking for many kind of journal but its not appropriate. Our project about how to build one index names sustainability tourism index, but to create that index,we use ATSI ( Amoeba Tourism Sustainability index) or Radar chart. We used to compare different indicator and dimension also different calculation into one radar chart.But, until this time its difficult to find references (books) and we dont know the appropriate software to create radar chart?
In context of smart destinations, colleagues and myself are developing a research project on digital visitor management. We are searching for existing cases where digital media are already being used for visitor management.
I would appreciate any tips and information from research teams working on this topic.

From my research results based on more than 140 hotels in Slovakia I see, that branded hotels are better valuated, they are at the top of the lists in many aspects, but there are many independent hotels companies with better economic performance than companies that own hotels with a global brand. There are also some of branded hotels, that went through re-branding process from one brand to another or from branded to independent.
I am interested on UHI's studies, especially in tourist cities to observe if touristic activities could cause modifications on the UHI's features. So I am looking for studies about this.
The sustainability has gained acceptance recently but tourism is like a fire that cook a meal and burn it at the same time. Therefore, what are the impact of religious tourism?

this field. In particular I'm searching for papers related to tourism
gamification case studies or an analysis\comparison of more works from
a political geography point of view including more experiences
I need to examine Tourism Led Growth hypothesis for Uzbekistan, CIS country. Can I use GDP growth rates instead of GDP to check whether cointegration relationship exists between economic growth and tourism development in Uzbekistan? Because GDP (real, nominal, per capita) in any forms is I(2), GDP growth rates and tourism variables are I(1).
P.S. When I performed different Cointegration and causality tests with economic growth rates, international tourism arrivals and tourism receipts TLGH holds for Uzbekistan. These tests show reciprocal cointegration relationship between variables.
Has anyone carried out in rural entrepreneurship and religious tourism research, using a methodology of cluster, or know of anyone who has carried it?

Hi every body,
I am working on Two-stage Heckman method as an economic model to estimate WTP of tourists for visiting a heritage site. I am wondering in the Probit model (first stage) marginal effect or Weighted Aggregate Elasticity should be interpreted? Which one is more common and what is the difference between them?
Thanks you all for your time to answer me
The Aysén Region of Chile is bordered to the west, by an intricate ecosystem of Pacific fjords and channels, which are fed by the freshwater rivers and ice flows of the Northern and Southern Patagonian Ice Fields. Two important productive sectors for the Region are Salmonculture and Nature-Based Tourism. Next week an important vote takes place to decide over a proposal from the Salmon Industry, which proposes to move into one of the last pristine areas of the fjords, bringing significant infrastructure and operations. This would create impacts in the viewshed for tourism, placing salmon incubators in and around the glaciers and inlets, large vessel traffic, industrial ports, etc. It would also insert aquaculture (antibiotics, concentrations of fish, etc.) into an ecosystem that, until now, has not been impacted by industry. There are three protected areas in the sector, but, their scope does not extend to the sea. There are no tourism studies for this area evaluating the potential impacts, from a tourism aspect. I have been asked to inform decision makers of best-practices in tourism research relating to evaluation of potential impacts and multi-use conflict resolution. I would appreciate your insights.
I am undertaking some research on the connection between glamping (luxury camping) and landscape (production, consumption and appreciation), but can only find limited published research on glamping. Can anyone help with suggestions? Thanks in advance

I am working on impact of tourism on locals, study area is forest and the villages that are involved in tourism are not exploiting forest much as compared to the villages that are not touristic. So, I am planning to collect data from locals through some tricky question in order to get data of forest exploitation. It is expected that people who are involved in tourism directly or indirectly are not exploiting forest. Can anybody help me?

I have been studying the restaurant industry for quite a while and now I'm starting to focus on the process of internationalization for businesses. However, I don't know much about this subject and I need your help. What are the main motivations and ways for a business to start exporting their services on an international way? Are there any specific critical issues and effects on performance that restaurants should be aware of? Please discuss this as it will be a great starting point for a possible future paper that I would like to develop.
