The 4th World Conference for Graduate Research in Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure is one of the research series that has been organised in cooperation with the journal ANATOLIA over the last six years.
The aim of the conference is to provide a research forum among graduate students and faculty members engaged in graduate teaching and research in tourism, hospitality and leisure with an opportunity to meet their counterparts from other universities in order to share their research experience, to receive feedbacks on their dissertations, and to update themselves with current issues and trends in the field.
We invite submissions from graduate students or recent graduates either for the thesis/dissertation or the full research category. In either cases, faculty members are urged to encourage their research students to submit papers and/or to help writing co-authored papers. Authors are invited to submit papers across a wide spectrum not only in tourism , travel, hospitality, leisure and recreation but also in other relating areas on the condition that the topic has a close proximity with such subjects as sociology of tourism; management and marketing of tourism, geography of tourism, psychology of tourism and leisure; economics of tourism, leisure and recreation etc. Papers can be submitted for the following four categories:
Thesis/dissertations: Open only for graduate students to reflect the summary of their thesis or dissertations in terms of the development of hypotheses and methodology and showing the way how it may contribute to the literature.
Research papers: Open both for graduates and faculty members who are encouraged to submit their regular conceptual or empirical papers together.
Interdisciplinary papers: Open only for those faculty members who have a background in a different discipline, but have the willingness to expand their research interests into tourism and so forth.
