Meeting the Assumptions Underlying Statistical Methods Used in Tourism Research: A Review of Articles Published in a Korean-Language Journal and an English-Language Journal

Abstract
The aim of this study is to compare the consideration given to statistical assumptions by authors of empirical studies in a Korean-language and an English-language tourism journal. This research is to analyze statistical assumptions of a representative sampling of empirical studies published between 1999 and 2008 in the Journal of Tourism Sciences in Korean language and the Annals of Tourism Research in English language. Using the statistical assumptions underlying statistical procedures provided by Tabachnick and Fidell (2007), research articles in each journal are analyzed with regard to the fundamental assumptions of the commonly used advanced statistical analyses. By conducting this research, the authors will affirm the importance of the statistical reliability of the empirical studies being accepted for publication within the past ten years.
