While many research, scholarly, evidence based and peer reviewed journal articles are only available with the payment of a fee, sometimes very costly, finding such articles on a topic one is studying can seem impossible for those who do not have access to databases at an academic library or other research organization.

This is why so many researchers request articles from many discussion groups in a wide range of subject disciplines. There are, however, some powerful search engines that uncover such academic publications. Consider this little known tool as just one such place to find academic publications, if one can settle for a very simple search such as just using the word tourism as the only search term.

Photo tourism: exploring photo collections in 3D
2006 International Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques volume 25 issue 3 pp 835-846
Noah Snavely (University of Washington)Steven M. Seitz (University of Washington)Richard Szeliski (Microsoft)
We present a system for interactively browsing and exploring large unstructured collections of photographs of a scene using a novel 3D interface. Our system consists of an image-based modeling front end that automatically computes the viewpoint of each photograph as well as a sparse 3D model of the scene and image to model correspondences. Our photo explorer uses image-based rendering techniques to smoothly transition between photographs, while also enabling full 3D navigation and exploration of the set of images and world geometry, along with auxiliary information such as overhead maps. Our system also makes it easy to construct photo tours of scenic or historic locations, and to annotate image details, which are automatically transferred to other relevant images. We demonstrate our system on several large personal photo collections as well as images gathered from Internet photo sharing sites.

Delivering Quality Service: All for One?
2005 Journal of Quality Assurance in Hospitality & Tourism volume 6 pp 25-42



Armando Lu Vieira (University of Aveiro)
Quality in tourism-related services, like in services in general, are basically about balancing customer perceptions and expectations. Successful service providers are able to meet and, whenever possible, exceed consumers' needs and wants. This way, it is possible to provide memorable experiences to visitors. In delivering services, due to certain specific characteristics of services (e.g., intangibility, simultaneity, variability and perishability), the human element, in particular the face-to-face interaction with the customer, plays a fundamental role. The study stresses the contribution of interpersonal variables for the success of service organisations. It discusses how commitment to customer service, and supportive supervisors and co-workers, influence the relationship managers' ability to satisfy customers. The main findings were as follows: (i) commitment to customer service and co-workers' support have direct and positive effects on the ability to satisfy customers; (ii) commitment to ...

Event tourism: Definition, evolution, and research
2008 Tourism Management volume 29 issue 3 pp 403-428
Donald Getz (University of Calgary)
This article reviews event tourism as both professional practice and a field of academic study. The origins and evolution of research on event tourism are pinpointed through both chronological and thematic literature reviews. A conceptual model of the core phenomenon and key themes in event tourism studies is provided as a framework for spurring theoretical advancement, identifying research gaps, and assisting professional practice. Conclusions are in two parts: a discussion of implications for the practice of event management and tourism, and implications are drawn for advancing theory in event tourism.

Electronic word-of-mouth in hospitality and tourism management
2008 Tourism Management volume 29 issue 3 pp 458-468
Stephen W. Litvin (College of Business and Economics)Ronald E. Goldsmith (Florida State University)Bing Pan (College of Business and Economics)
Interpersonal influence and word-of-mouth (WOM) are ranked the most important information source when a consumer is making a purchase decision. These influences are especially important in the hospitality and tourism industry, whose intangible products are difficult to evaluate prior to their consumption. When WOM becomes digital, the large-scale, anonymous, ephemeral nature of the Internet induces new ways of capturing, analyzing, interpreting, and managing the influence that one consumer may have on another. This paper describes online interpersonal influence, or eWOM, as a potentially cost-effective means for marketing hospitality and tourism, and discusses some of the nascent technological and ethical issues facing marketers as they seek to harness emerging eWOM technologies.

Marketing the competitive destination of the future
2000 Tourism Management volume 21 issue 1 pp 97-116
Dimitrios Buhalis (University of Westminster)
Destination marketing is increasingly becoming extremely competitive worldwide. This paper explains the destination concept and attempts to synthesise several models for strategic marketing and management of destinations. It provides an overview of several techniques widely used and illustrates examples from around the world. The paper also explains that marketing of destinations should balance the strategic objectives of all stakeholders as well the sustainability of local resources. Destinations need to differentiate their products and develop partnerships between the public and private sector locally in order to co-ordinate delivery. Taking advantage of new technologies and the Internet also enables destinations to enhance their competitiveness by increasing their visibility, reducing costs and enhancing local co-operation. Destination marketing must lead to the optimisation of tourism impacts and the achievement of the strategic objectives for all stakeholders.

=====================================================


But there are databases on the internet with far more powerful searching capabilities than Microsoft Academic. These are placed at the top of the post I link to below that features free search tools at the top of the post that guide scholars to the sources they need for the studies they are conducting. This only leaves the cost of the actual publications that are needed, so that research costs for those who must buy both database access and the publications themselves are greatly reduced. Furthermore, in the collection of fee based databases, for those who have access to these search tools, the places where tourism content hides is startling and
I suspect, at least some reading this post would consider these databases ridiculous places to check.

A search of tourism related terms is conducted in all databases listed and
an indiction of the number of sources found in each is provided for each listed database. A small number of sources found in a database topically far afield from tourism is not necessarily a bad thing. This content could become the basis for a paper or report on the intersection of these
two disciplines, tourism and that of the database.


Finally there is plain old all purpose Google, which some of us have
spent great effort in discouraging our students from using so as to avoid
results like these for searches like this:

TOURISM OR TOURIST OR TOURISTS OR HOSPITALITY OR HOTEL OR HOTELS OR RESTAURANTS OR MOTELS

Hotels.com - Cheap Hotels, Discount Rates & Hotel Deals
https://www.hotels.com/

Instant savings with secret prices PLUS, stay 10 nights, get 1 FREE. Book now on Hotels.com using real guest reviews for real savings on your next room.
?Hotel Deals ?Hotels.ca ?Las Vegas Hotels ?Chicago Hotels
Hotels: Find Cheap Hotel Deals & Discounts - KAYAK
https://www.kayak.com/hotels

Savings based on price differences among booking sites searched for the same hotel. ... KAYAK searches hundreds of hotel booking sites to help you find hotels and book hotels that suit you best. Since KAYAK searches many hotel sites at once, you can find discount hotels quickly.

and all first ten sources are about the same.

BUT

Change the search to this group of words:


(TOURISM OR TOURIST OR TOURISTS OR HOSPITALITY OR HOTEL OR HOTELS OR
RESTAURANTS OR MOTELS) AND (QUALITATIVE OR QUANTITATIVE)

in the same good old Google, we see a total change.

While Google never shows more than 1,000 records in any search result in any Google database, this search lists this number of results:

75,400,000 results

Clearly searches of Google do not fail to show research publications because none are there. It is a matter of structuring the search so that they are found. For those without access to academic databases, the examples at the top of the post cited below should help add Google search techniques to ones methodologies for finding research studies.

The rest of the post should help tourism researchers see places they would not think of looking at for the topics they are pursuing.

user research, should be triangulated with other sources of data."

A systematic review answers a defined research question by collecting and summarising all empirical evidence that fits pre-specified eligibility criteria.



A meta-analysis is the use of statistical methods to summarise the results of these studies.

Meta-analysis

From Wikipedia



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meta-analysis



.



In statistics, meta-analysis comprises statistical methods for contrasting and combining results from different studies in the hope of identifying patterns among study results, sources of disagreement among those results, or other interesting relationships that may come to light in the context of multiple studies.[1] Meta-analysis can be thought of as "conducting research about previous research." In its simplest form, meta-analysis is done by identifying a common statistical measure that is shared between studies, such as effect size or p-value, and calculating a weighted average of that common measure. This weighting is usually related to the sample sizes of the individual studies, although it can also include other factors, such as study quality.



.



The motivation of a meta-analysis is to aggregate information in order to achieve a higher statistical power for the measure of interest, as opposed to a less precise measure derived from a single study. In performing a meta-analysis, an investigator must make choices many of which can affect its results, including deciding how to search for studies, selecting studies based on a set of objective criteria, dealing with incomplete data, analyzing the data, and accounting for or choosing not to account for publication bias. [2]



.



Meta-analyses are often, but not always, important components of a systematic review procedure. For instance, a meta-analysis may be conducted on several clinical trials of a medical treatment, in an effort to obtain a better understanding of how well the treatment works. Here it is convenient to follow the terminology used by the Cochrane Collaboration,[3] and use "meta-analysis" to refer to statistical methods of combining evidence, leaving other aspects of 'research synthesis' or 'evidence synthesis', such as combining information from qualitative studies, for the more general context of systematic reviews.

Databases with Content Regarding Computer Science and Information Science


This past Summer I launched a research guide for Computer and Information
Science. The first and only complete section of this guide is the list of
databases that provide sources related to this field based on a search of
terminology used in teaching this subject area. This list is very long as
I also include a substantial list of citations from about 70% of the
databases included as well as indication of the number of sources in each
database searched.  I suspect in some of these databases, there would be a
wealth of content about digital marketing that should be useful to any   
involved with digital marketing.

Shopping Cart: Auto-Update User's Quantity Changes and Allow 'Quantity
0' (86% Don't)

the 'OnBlur' event), and 2.) allow for 'quantity: 0' as a
supplementary way to delete items, but ask users to confirm their
choice (depending on the user's page context). Yet, it's currently 86%
of sites that get one or both of these aspects wrong."

research, and working with a group. Many struggle with generating
ideas because they lack time, managerial support, and a methodology
for conducting effective ideation sessions."
