Urban tourism has remained a consistent theme in the expansion of tourism research. It would progress by embracing wider social science agendas so that tourism becomes integrated into these academic debates to progress the subject area. Its main aim is to identify the impact issues that are of most concern to host communities and to understand the impact of tourism on local government and the implications of this for the sustainable development of tourism within and across local government areas.
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.
