Abstract: In spite of the wide recognition of the importance of citations in the international academic community, virtually no studies examine their source in hospitality and tourism [HT] journals. This paper reports the findings of a study that investigated the sources of citations in 2007 to 2011 for articles published in 2006 in six leading HT journals. Findings show that the citations were mainly drawn from non-HT journals, and that tourism journals received more citations than those in the hospitality field. Although it was not a major issue, the analyzed journals did exhibit certain levels of self-citation.
