Publications

The centers and institutes at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration publish a series of four types of online research studies: reports, tools, roundtable hightlights, and indices. The publications are valuable for their broad appeal and practical implications for hospitality and service industry executives, managers, operators, and consultants.

Prospective authors should review the submission guidelines before submitting a manuscript. Manuscripts must meet formatting and content standards to be considered for review. Authors are strongly encouraged to engage an outside copy editor prior to submitting a manuscript.

Types of Hospitality Publications

Reports
A research-based study that addresses issues associated with the hospitality and service industry. A report is a “put-to-work Monday-morning” type of study in that it provides suggestions that are clear and actionable. A reader should have an idea of what to “do differently” having read a report.
Tools
An instructional study or “how to” document. There are two types of tools: (1) a Microsoft Word document and (2) a Microsoft Word document and a related Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
Roundtable Highlights
A concise, specific précis highlighting key points and essential lessons from a roundtable. Like a report, a proceeding should be written with a practitioner audience in mind and focus on actionable suggestions from the discussion.
Indices
A recurring record of data pertinent to the hospitality industry.
