Chapter 2: Tourism geographies: a bibliometric review
This chapter provides a review of major traditions within tourism geographies. This implies a description of the development of tourism research and not least the scientification of tourism geographies, i.e. the transition from being an applied and poorly theoretically underpinned field of research to being a competitive field struggling for a position within the academic landscape. Since there are several reasonable accounts available already, this chapter uses a bibliometric approach to supplement existing overviews. Bibliometric tools allow for a systematic approach to what has been published and by whom. Moreover, the available tools allow for the identification of thematic clusters as well as networks of individuals. This overview providesa framework for the following chapters.
