Key Concepts in Tourism Research



May 2012 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This book walks students through the selection and application of research methods within tourism. The authors introduce the relevant language and theory of key methodologies and then develop them using strategic literature review and the inclusion of international examples which relate directly to tourism. The historical and philosophical context of each method is then carefully laid out alongside the practical application of the technique. Each concept sets the historical and philosophical context of a method alongside the practical application of the technique.

A good introduction to various aspects of research in tourism which will be recommended to all our 4th year students preparing their final thesis

I will recommend our master student to read this book for our courses in research philosophy and research methods. They can then tap in on interests. The chapters are a bit too short to be considered part of the syllabus for these courses.

I will also use it for preperations for the courses. For the teacher it is necessary to have these types of key concepts books.
