Conceptual vs. Empirical Content
Both Tourism Management and Journal of Travel Research intend to offer empirical content to their readers rather than conceptual content.
Tourism Management aims to publish articles that are directly relevant to its readers and of interest to both academics and practitioners, with a minimum of technical jargon. It features departments as Case Studies, Research Note, Conference Reviews, Book Reviews, and Calendar introducing the forthcoming event in the travel industry.
Journal of Travel Research enhances readers?work by giving them a complete picture of the travel and tourism research field. In addition to major research articles, Journal of Travel Research features such unique and convenient departments as:

Type of Data Collection Procedures Used in the Studies
Questionnaire: Self-administered mail questionnaire used to collect information about individual attractions. The questionnaire was addressed to the general manager of the attraction. A return address was added to the back of each envelope so that undelivered questionnaires could be eliminated from the study. Prepaid postage envelopes were also included with all questionnaires to facilitate ease of return. An adaptation of Dillman's (1978) total design method was used in an attempt to maximize the response rate. This technique involves the use of follow-up postcards to remind managers to complete the questionnaire. One of follow-up mailing of postcards was initiated to act as a reminder and to encourage further response.
Case Study- to understand the decision-making processes of independent travelers.
Case study is the preferred research methodology when "how?or "why?questions are being posed.

Methods Used to Analyze the Data
Content analysis involves categorization of the data. Researchers may either adapt previously created categories if they fit the framework of the study or develop new categories. This technique has been used frequently by tourism, travel and hospitality researchers in understanding many different subjects (e.g., customer satisfaction, hospitality ethical codes, etc.). There are different approaches to content analysis, ranging from purely quantitative where frequencies are counted to an approach that focuses on meaning in which inferences are drawn from the data. While quantification is mostly equated with strict frequency counting, quantification can take the form of quantitative words like more, always, or often.
The software program can also be used to analyze and display data in an organized fashion, and draw conclusions from the data. is among the most advanced of the packages available, as it includes a malleable "node-tree?structure that assists with qualitative data management.
