ICHRIE Johnson & Wales Hospitality & Tourism Case Study Competition & Publication Series
Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases


It is our pleasure to announce the launch of the 9th edition of this initiative and to cordially invite you to submit your case studies for the 2019 ICHRIE Johnson & Wales Hospitality & Tourism Case Study Competition & Publications Series.

The ICHRIE Johnson & Wales Hospitality & Tourism Case Study Competition and Publication Series has been running with great success during the last seven years resulting to: many awards and public recognition to the winners; the submission of numerous high quality case studies; and the publication of seven volumes (consisting of 4 issues each volume) of the Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases (JHTC). As the quality level of the case studies is sky rocketing each year, the competition is becoming tougher and ICHRIE significantly contributes to the academia by enriching the educational material that educators can use for enhancing their instruction methods.

Worthy case studies submitted to the competition will be peer-reviewed and considered for publication in the ICHRIE journal titled "Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases". The three most highly evaluated and commented case studies will also receive prestigious (financial and material) prizes as well as public recognition and promotion in the annual ICHRIE conference and other promotional material.

The case studies may focus on any topic and subject area related to the tourism & hospitality education and industry. Case studies may be compiled from field research, published sources and/or generalized experience. Case studies do not have to follow a specific structure. However, each case study is expected to include sections related to the following topics: a) a background of the subject organisation and/or of the topic; b) an analysis of the dilemma and/or the teaching objective; c) a section explaining the questions and dilemmas of the case study; d) related bibliography and additional reading.

The case studies must be of maximum 5,000 words excluding figures, tables, annexes and bibliography. Each case study submission must be accompanied by a teaching note for which there is no world limit (although a teaching note of a minimum of 1,000 words is expected). The case studies and the teaching note will be evaluated against three criteria: content, theoretical underpinning, and presentation. Case studies must adhere and follow the submission guidelines of case study writing.

For more information about the submission guidelines, the competition rules, the type and amount of the awards/prizes, the evaluation criteria and the ethical/legal requirements for submitting case studies, please see additional information on this page.

The deadline for submitting case studies to the ICHRIE Johnson & Wales case study competition is the 15th April 2019.

Author(s) wishing to submit a case study ONLY for publication consideration in the 2020 issue(s) of the Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases can submit their case study until the 30th of June 2019.

If you require further information and/or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

This is your opportunity to contribute to the Tourism & Hospitality Education as well as publish and be rewarded for your efforts.
Looking forward to receiving your case studies and thank you in advance for your valuable support to this great initiative.
