ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the general characteristics, number and types of errors in references in Journal of Tourism Sciences. 1,654 references were divided into books, articles, thesis/dissertation, and proceedings and reviewed. Research findings reveal that a considerable error rate in the references(47.6%) was identified. Of 1,654 references, major errors such as misspelled or omitted author names, which prevent the rapid retrieval of information, occurred in 537(32.5%) of the references. Minor errors such as misspelled or omitted subtitles occurred at the rate of 36%(595). The study discusses the implications of the results and suggest future research topics.
