This is a comprehensive text which encompasses consideration of a broad range of concepts and techniques of relevance to scholars of tourism. I think it makes a very useful contribution to understanding a range of key concepts and theories used in the construction and presentation of tourism knowledgeDr Fiona Jordan Director of Postgraduate and Professional Studies, Faculty of Business and Law, UWE
This book provides a comprehensive understanding of the key concepts associated with conducting tourism research. It is a useful and beneficial resource for students both undergraduate and postgraduate students undertaking a thesis through research.
The authors discuss the key concepts being utilised in tourism research. This book would provide a useful resource for students currently writing their tourism thesis.
The book provides a basic, yet very valuable insight into core research methods for the tourism and hospitality industry. The book is very well structured and clearly delivers workable insights into various research approaches, their value and possible pitfalls, as well as examples of research that have implemented the various methods. This book is essential for any bachelor programme in Tourism Management.
An excellent book for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. I am using the book for a course on research methods in which we discuss research approaches and epistemologies. It serves as a good basis for further reading.
The book is structured completely differently than I had expected. It is basically a glossary with definitions and historical development of research concepts. This is useful for my own reference, but not for our students, who are in need of more practical and specific ways to APPLY these concepts to their own research.
Essential read for every student preparing to undertake research finalised by thesis. Contemporary, well written concepts enable throughout understanding of tourism research methods.
A concise Overview to understand Tourism Research
This is the first text I have come across that provides an excellent overview of the concepts employed in tourism research. It is written in an accessible and engaging language. Students loved it.
A good text to provide the basics for all research methods and approaches. It clearly identifies the techniques which can be adopted for all levels of research which users will find beneficial.
This book is really important for Master-Students!
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.
