Tourism Recreation Research: Best Paper Award

About the prize

The Article of the Year Award acknowledges and encourages contributions that aim to advance the field of Tourism Studies. Since 2006, more than a dozen ‘Best Article of the Year Awards’ have already been awarded so far. The criteria for assessment of the articles would be as follows:

1. Methodology
2. Quality of Content
3. Style of presentation
4. Originality
5. Practical usability of research
6. Readability of Research

Each criterion carries 10 marks. Judges were requested to provide the names of best three articles of the year, based on the total marks, as per the above criteria. The opinion and marks thus received were collected, reviewed and finally endorsed by the Editor-in-Chief.

The winning authors are entitled to receive one year's complimentary subscription of Tourism Recreation Research and a citation jointly signed by the Publisher Routledge (UK) and Editor-in-Chief. The Article of the year award is announced in the first issue of the next year's publication.

You can find the winning articles below. The latest winning article is free to read until the end of the year.
