International Journal of Tourism Policy (IJTP), Vol. 12, No. 3, 2022

Abstract: IJTP is an important journal that encourages critical examination of the emerging discourses in tourism policy. This quantitative study analyses the research papers published between 2007 and 2020 using a bibliometric approach to commemorate the 15th anniversary of IJTP. The statistical tool - bibliometrix was used to identify the leading trends and themes in the journal. This study operationalises extensive bibliometric performance and relational indicators. The results revealed that authors from different regions of the world published their work in IJTP. Tourism, tourism policy, sustainable tourism, and tourism planning were the most common keywords used. The quantitative approach has been primarily adopted in the papers of IJTP. Around 69% of the researches were completed through collaboration. The analysis conducted in the current study is in line with the other bibliometric studies considering individual journals. Therefore, this study may be relevant for researchers in tourism and hospitality scholarship.
