Topics of case studies

The case studies may focus on any topic and subject area (e.g. operations, information technology, marketing, sustainability etc.) related to the tourism & hospitality education and industry. Case studies published in JHTC may deal with a wide variety of tourism and hospitality organizations such as businesses, government organizations, destination organisations, educational institutions, non-profit organizations.

  • Case studies may be compiled from field research, published sources and/or generalized experience. Case studies drawing from field research should also obtain and submit a publication permission from an appropriate representative of the organisation referenced in the case study. Please read more information about the publication permission form in the section discussing the submission guidelines of JHTC.
  • Case studies may be designed to illustrate a specific point, business problem, research idea or to facilitate student mastery of concepts. Case studies published in JHTC may report not only successful practices, but also failures and mismanagement practices. Consequently, it is not required that all aspects of each case study are novel, but the case studies should clearly identify their impact in teaching and/or research and should lead the reader to a point at which some decision, series of strategies or research streams must be developed. In this vein, it is also suggested that case studies use writing styles and approaches that can make them useful and appropriate as a teaching or research tool. For example, case studies may also be presented in narrative style or in dialogue, should the latter can attract and hold the students’ or readers’ attention.
  • All case studies must be accompanied by a Teaching Note, which is also peer reviewed.
