| The objective of this title is to outline what a hotel management is, the main challenges arising and why it is a particularly rich research context. The separation between ownership and management through a hotel management contract has become relatively widespread and is seen as one of the driving mechanisms for the rapid internationalization of the hotel industry.
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
