Doctoral students' research productivity: An analysis of publications in tourism and hospitality journals Academic Article uri icon


  • While some tourism and hospitality researchers have examined the research productivity at the level of institutions or scholars holding a PhD degree, few studies on PhD students' research productivity have been conducted. The reason for this absence could be because it is difficult to get comprehensive PhD student lists for all academic institutions. This study therefore attempted to overcome this obstacle. With an alternative regression model (zerotruncated count model), this study aimed to identify significant factors influencing the students' scholarly publications in major tourism and hospitality journals. The results showed that two variables - productivity of co-author(s) and US-model institutions - significantly influenced PhD student publications in the tourism literature.
