Barron, Paul, Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management


Welcome to Volume 11, Issue 2 of the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management. One of the aims of the journal is to provide a link between the hospitality, tourism, leisure, travel and event industries and academia. As in previous years, I have attempted to achieve this aim by using this midyear issue of the journal to disseminate research from recent academic conferences to a wider audience.

An understandable criticism of academic research, and the usefulness of the information it generates, centres around the length of time research results take to filter through to industry. Academic conferences have traditionally been the forum where university academics present findings from recently completed research or, indeed, present a synopsis of work completed to date in the form of "work-in-progress" abstracts. The focus of this issue is to develop a closer relationship between industry and academia through the publication of papers from two recent hospitality and tourism research conferences.

The first of these was the Council for Hospitality and Tourism Education (CAUTHE) 14th National Research Conference, hosted by The University of Queensland and held in Brisbane in February this year. As in previous years, this conference represented the major gathering of hospitality and tourism academics in Australia. Brisbane 2004 maintained this position and attracted 240 delegates from 14 countries. A record 84 fully-refereed papers and 107 working papers and PhD abstracts were presented across all disciplines. At the conclusion of the conference, the journal editorial board met to choose a representative sample of fully-refereed papers and the first four articles in this issue are the result of these extensive deliberations. These four articles rep resent a cross-section of the papers presented at the conference and demonstrate the diversity and quality of research occurring in Australia and overseas.

CAUTHE 2005--Sharing Tourism Knowledge will be hosted by The Charles Darwin University and is scheduled to take place February 1-5, 2005 in Alice Springs. Further details and the call for papers can be found at http://www.cdu.edu.au/cauthe2005

In an attempt to maintain links with hospitality and tourism research organisations overseas, this issue also contains a selection of refereed articles from the 25th Anniversary Council for Hospitality Management Education (CHME) conference which took place in Cardiff, UK, in April this year and was hosted and organised by the Welsh School of Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure Management at The University of Wales Institute.
