Databases and Internet Search Tools
That are Useful for Research in Tourism

.

.

This post is shared to those interested and was written in response to a 
request for guidance regarding the best search tools to be acquired by a 
college to facilitate student and faculty research in the field of 
tourism.  I suspect these comments may be useful to others and they are 
therefore shared here.  These are my own opinions and observations.

.

.

The most important database to own is the British agriculture database 
called CAB and published by CABI.  The tourism and recreation subfile of 
their database that they provide is as far as I know the most 
comprehensive file. They are also the world's leading resource on human 
and animal nutrition that could be useful for hospitality studies such as 
restaurant food choice selections.  This is available on the OVID and 
EBSCOHost platforms which are better in terms of search capabilities than 
their own platform.  Since EBSCOHost also has the Hospitality and Tourism 
Complete database, one would be able to search both simultaneously in both 
are obtained via EBSCOHost.

One of the big mistakes for researchers who get beyond only searching web 
Google is to think that they should only use the database in their field, say 
Psychinfo for Psychology.  This is very bad thinking.  General databases and 
databases in related fields are also very important sources for information in 
ones field, in this case tourism, hospitality, recreation, and sports.  Now if 
one considers the compounding fact that adjectival tourism is alive and well 
with many focuses in tourism that lean on other fields such as heritage tourism 
(history databases) or medical tourism (medical databases) one can find much 
information on tourism in social science databases, business databases like 
Business Source Premier and ABI Inform as well as well as databases in 
many other fields.

.

http://guides.temple.edu/Heritage-Tourism

.

This page linked below, at the time this check of database content for the 
word tourism was done, will provide you with a sense of how widely the 
content regarding tourism is diffused through academic subject fields. 
One needs to choose how widely one wants to be able to search as well as 
the focuses of ones tourism program, for example is it hospitality focused 
with the key interests being business aspects and heritage, this will help 
with database selections from other fields.

.

Tourism as a search term in a range of databases:

There is also this database source, frequently mentioned on the TRINET 
professional and academic discussion group that is an important source of 
tourism publication indexing.  This is the contact information for the provider 
of this tourism resource.

Finally, free search tools for the end user on the web are huge resources for 
tourism information.  These include Google Scholar, Google Books, SCIRUS, and 
any version of Summon at a subscribing institution, we at Temple of course use 
Temple Summon Search.  Each is different in what it does and all need to be 
used for serious or important tourism research projects and papers.

To provide comprehensive searching in the field of tourism and for that matter 
in other fields as well, now and increasingly in the future, requires a very 
wide range of databases and internet search services. There are specialized 
tools such as Web of Science and Google Scholar that provide sources that site 
a particular known publication.  Google News Archive, where one can track news 
stories at no institutional or end user cost as well as fee based commercial 
products like Proquest, Access World News, Factiva, Dialog and others provide 
full text coverage of news stories about all subjects including tourism. 
Finding information in a subject discipline, in this case tourism, is no longer 
a simple matter of using one or two core databases in a subject field, but 
rather a maze of resources that add different pieces to a subject discipline 
puzzle.

.

Furthermore an institution that invests in expensive database tools is 
well advised to have database guides to publication collections in print 
and online that permit access to these publications as well as tools like 
Summon that show what is owned in a collection in response to topical 
searches and a journal finding tool so that users can locate online and 
print journals owned in the library collection.  Add to this a link 
resolver that shows within databases where an article can be found full 
text in the home library collection as yet another important resource. 
Proquest provides the Summon search tool and their Serial Solutions 
subsidiary provides both a journal search tool and a link resolver as just 
one example of where one can purchase these tools for the home institution 
library.

.

Finally the best collection of databases will be used in a very pedestrian 
fashion if serious training in their use is not provided ongoing to students 
and other institutional end users.

One other tidbit of use in research is a nifty tool that shows where journals 
are indexed, abstracted and found in full text.  This is the CUFTS tool.
