Free hospitality and tourism eJournal articles

Members and non-members of the Institute will appreciate the advanced search option on publisher Science Direct‘s website. It allows searchers to narrow their results to open access, i.e. free, journal articles on hospitality and tourism topics. Look for the limiters, such as year and open access, to help you limit your search results. (see image below)

However, as every good researcher knows – particularly if a product is free – the articles must be carefully evaluated to determine the quality of the publication and its authors, their education level and the affiliated institution, etc, before relying on the articles’ content.

Institute members who want to ensure access to the best quality peer-reviewed and trade association ejournals should use the Institute’s carefully managed hospitality and tourism eResources Collection, which can be found on the Institute’s website under ‘Info Services’. The eResources Collection is a popular members-only benefit offering FREE access to top quality ebooks and ejournals from globally-recognised publishers and authors.
