Review of Hospitality Ethics Research in 2008


2010 Annual ICHRIE Summer Conference


This paper reviews and analyzes 83 articles on the topic of hospitality ethics that appeared in the hospitality journals in the Hospitality and Tourism Index in the year of 2008. Figures in this paper show self emerging topic categories, journals, and dates of publication so that readers can see how the 2008 articles fit with the other 433 articles analyzed and reviewed since 1990. Findings indicate the most obvious change in 2008 to be from concern over the unethical behaviors of individuals in U.S. hospitality and hospitality related operations, to the more global concerns of sustainability for both companies and communities.
