Advances in Hospitality and Leisure by Joseph S. Chen

Advances in Hospitality and Leisure delivers refreshing insights from a host of scientific studies in the domains of hospitality, leisure and tourism. It provides a platform to galvanize thoughts on contemporary issues and merging trends essential to theory advancement as well as professional practices from a global perspective. The focus is to transcend the innovative methods of inquiry so as to inspire new research topics that are vital and have been in large neglected. All volumes are keen to address the needs of the populace having interests in disseminating ideas, concepts and theories derived from scholarly investigations. Potential readers may retrieve useful texts to outline new research agendas, suggest viable topics for a dissertation work, and augment the knowledge of the subjects of interest.


This year's volume contains eight full papers and two research reports. The topics include the emotional traveler: happiness and engagement as predictors of behavioral intentions among tourists in northern Norway, barriers to implementing green management in the hospitality industry, the inter-relationship between personality traits and psychological constraints on adventure activity participation, friends and relatives as a destination information source, and environmental-focused events: saving tourism landmarks for future generations. -- Annotation (c)2017 * ( *
