Searching databases and journals for first year tourism module

  1. 1. Tourism module – guide to useful databases, websites and electronic journals Useful journals and the years we have access to from York St John Title Class no: If electronic which package Annals of tourism research 338.479105 Elsevier Science Direct Print version 1995- ANN Electronic version 2002- Attractions management 338.479105 Print only ATT International journal of tourism 338.479105 INT Wiley research Print version 2001- Electronic version 1999- Journal of leisure research 790.05 JOU Academic Onefile Print version 1981- Electronic version 1993- Journal of sustainable tourism 338.479105 Swetswise Print and electronic 1996- JOU Leisure management 790.05 LEI Website Print version 1981- Electronic version 2000- Managing leisure 790.05 LEI Swetswise & Taylor and Francis Print version 1995- Electronic version 1997- Tourism management 300.5 TOU Elsevier Science Direct Print version 1986- Electronic version 2002- Tourism review Electronic only Emerald Task one: Leisure, recreation and tourism abstracts and find full text articles This is an Indexing and abstracts database to search for journal and book literature about tourism topics. It’s not full text so mostly you won’t get the whole article. You can limit your search to journals we hold in the library and therefore access the full text. This can only be accessed by a couple of users at once. . Two stages to your search: 1. Search Leisure, recreation and tourism abstracts – I will have to do this in the session, but you can obviously search this after the session within the University only. 2. Find the full text of articles on the e-journal finder. Examples of searches on Leisure, recreation and tourism abstracts: Other examples: Heritage tourism and UK Tourist attractions and UK and market* (includes market, markets and marketing) Tourist attractions and UK and access Historic buildings and UK
  2. 2. Find the following articles via the e-journal finder: An assessment of 'international best practice' in visitor attraction management: does Scotland really lag behind? Garrod, B. Leask, A. Fyall, A. International Journal of Tourism Research, 2007, Vol. 9, No. 1, pp. 21-42, 30 ref. Special issue: Visitor attractions. Fyall, A. Leask, A. Garrod, B. International Journal of Tourism Research, 2002, Vol. 4, No. 5, pp. 333-411 Other articles in this special issue above are also relevant. How can we manage the tourist-historic city? Tourism strategy in Cambridge, UK, 1978-2003. Maitland, R. / Tourism Management, 2006, Vol. 27, No. 6, pp. 1262-1273, 38 ref. Tourism, performance and social exclusion in "Olde York". Mordue, T. / Annals of Tourism Research, 2005, Vol. 32, No. 1, pp. 179-198, 30 ref. Once you have found the record for the journal below via e-journal finder, use the Swetswise link to display the full text. You can also search Swetswise in general for other articles as shown in the screen display below this reference. Putting down routes: an examination of local government cultural policy shaping the development of heritage trails. Hayes, D. , MacLeod, N. / Managing Leisure, 2008, Vol. 13, No. 2, pp. 57-73, 32 ref. Go to Content search at the top of the Swetswise screen. Input your search words and limit to full text subscriptions in order to display full text articles only. There is also an advanced search if you wish to combine terms. Use with care because this software won’t include all our journals so you may still need to try Leisure, recreation & tourism abstracts.
  3. 3. Task two: Searching Tourism insights database and Visit Britain website Available via Your subject > Management >Databases and from the main list of databases this can be used within the University only. It consists of full text articles on a range of topics on UK tourism. From the left hand side of the screen, access: Articles by subject category to browse the available sections: Attractions, activities, events Attractions: Arts / Events /Exhibitions, conferences, trade fairs / Health, fitness and leisure / Heritage / historical attractions / Museums / Sports Example of an article about heritage tourism: Heritage Tourism in the UK - a Glance at Things to Come By John Swarbrooke May 2002 Marketing Branding / Crisis management / Customer care / Market research / Marketing: general / Measuring results / PR Visit Britain website This is freely accessible. Produced by the same organisation as Tourism insights database ie: Visit Britain This website is available via Your subject >Management >Websites and provides online access to statistics and market research on the UK Tourism industry. This includes: Annual Visitor Attractions Survey Available via Domestic tourism statistics and research >Market research or statistics Visit Britain provides statistics for attractions in England from 2003 onwards. These are compiled into both national and regional reports. United Kingdom Tourism Survey Top ten English towns (includes York) UKTS –Yorkshire International and domestic market profiles –UK
  4. 4. Task three – searching on Academic OneFile This is a full text database so it is easy to link to the full article, but many of the journals indexed are American so there may not be much available on British tourist sites and buildings. Example of a search: A second search for visitor management returns (amongst others) the following article: Title: Managing visitor attractions: an international comparison of management practice. Author(s): Alan Fyall and Anna Leask. Source: Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management 9.2 (June 2002): p.106 (15). (7039 words) From Academic OneFile. Ideas of terms to use: Try searching for some of the following subject terms: Historic buildings Historic sites Travel industry Tourism promotion Combined with: Market* for market, markets and marketing Benefits United Kingdom – use for Britain
