Title: Advances in Tourism Economics - New Developments

Editors: Álvaro Matias, Peter Nijkamp and Manuela Sarmento

Publisher: Physika-Verlag, Heidelberg, 2009

ISBN: 978-3-7908-2123-9

 

Advances in Tourism Economics provides a thorough assessment of state-of-the-art economic research in this rapidly developing field. The authors start by analyzing the recent upsurge of model-based economic research in the field, which builds on powerful tools in quantitative economics, such as discrete choice models, social accounting matrices, data envelopment analyses, impact assessment models or partial computable equilibrium models including environmental externalities. The volume originates from this novel research spirit in the area and aims to offer an attractive collection of operational research tools and approaches. It forms an appealing record of modern tourism economics and positions the field within the strong tradition of quantitative economic research, with due attention for both the demand and supply side of the tourism sector, including technological and logistic advances.

This volume consists of sixteen scientific articles centered on three main focal points: methodological innovation in tourism economics research, quantitative assessment of various impacts caused by the tourist sector, and trend analysis in the modern tourist market. The emphasis is mainly on applied modeling experiments and phenomena, with the aim to assess in quantitative form the importance of the various key factors at work. Advances in Tourism Economics originates from a novel research spirit in tourism economics and aims to offer an attractive collection of operational research tools and approaches in tourism research. Originality and advanced methodology have been the major criteria for selecting these contributions. They form an appealing record of modern tourism economic research and position tourism economics within the strong tradition of quantitative economic research, with due attention for both the demand and supply side of the tourism sector, including technological and logistic advances in the sector. This volume offers thus examples of pioneering research in tourism economics.
