Abstract

In spite of the increasing number of publication and newly established journals in event management, investigation of research topics by analyzing titles and abstracts of articles did not draw much attention among event scholars. This study is to find the trend of topics of research published in event management journals and suggest for future research. A total of 403 research papers published in the four event management journals were collected. The content analysis was performed with 4,087 words from titles of articles. The most frequently used words in the titles of articles are “event(s)” and “festival(s)” published in event management journals. The frequently used words in different journals and different time periods will be presented. Study limitations and future directions are discussed
