Abstract: This paper examines the academic foundations for eTourism research, which is operationalized as the number of citations, in terms of disciplines and publication sources. Harnessing the content analysis on bibliographies of articles published in ENTER proceedings from 2005 to 2012, empirical findings revealed that references from other disciplines were cited more frequent than those from tourism-related channels. This suggests that research on eTourism was generally grounded on knowledge from other fields. The high frequency of citations from journals, books as well as conference proceedings indicates a strong and staying impact of these traditional information sources on researchers in eTourism. Implications, limitations of this study as well as directions for future research are discussed.
