ICHRIE Research Reports

Translating Research Implications to applications: Industry’s commentary 

The purpose of the ICHRIE Research Reports is to generate a series of peer-reviewed research reports that are based on academic research findings, and targeted towards industry practitioners and policymakers. ICHRIE Research Reports translate academic research findings into practical applications.

ICHRIE Research Reports interpret the extensive academic research of the ICHRIE community to inform industry practice and policymakers. These research reports also place ICHRIE in the strategic forefront of generating and widely disseminating translational research in the hospitality and tourism industries.

The ICHRIE Research Reports are electronically published with open access to all ICHRIE members. There is a nominal fee for non-ICHRIE members to support processing and publication costs.
