SCIENCE AND PROFITS: PROBLEMS AND CONTROVERSIES FOR TOURISM FIELDS
The goals of this commentary piece are twofold. On one hand it continues discussing the concerns originally formulated by Ulrike Gretzel in her text, A vision for ERTR recently published at e-Review of Tourism of Research. She claims the competition for research excellence exploded over the last decades. Today, tourism research is based on an uncanny obsession for citations and high-impact journal indexation. On another level, it questions the current usage of editorial copy right policies, which originally were designed to protect journals and authors from plagiarism, to the interests of great publishers that lead publications to restricted use.
