    Abstract

    Tourism is a cross-disciplinary subject working in myriad fields such as anthropology, geography, and sociology. Yet for universities, departments and governmental organisations judging research output (King 2004), interdisciplinary journals necessitate comparisons within and across disciplines (Barrett, Olia, and Von Bailey 2000). Although hospitality and tourism heads reported publications in reputable refereed journals as the top measure of research performance (Law and Chon 2007), tourism journals are troublesome to rank.
