ABSTRACT

This study comparatively and analytically examines the relationship among the keywords of tourism policy research under different policy regimes. It then visualizes the results to clearly identify the features of each regime. This study analyzes 369 research programs throughout 1993 to 2015 by the KCTI. Using Network Text Analysis, this study identifies semantic meanings and relative influences among keywords, and structurally analyzes the role of specific keywords. As a result, even though the entire research constitutes one network, the sub-networks in both large and small have not been clearly formed yet. The results show that the features of the tourism policies under different policy regimes are reflected in the research. The network centrality of the keywords ‘institutional improvement,’ ‘statute’ and ‘tourism industry’ appear to be high in the research. These results show a similar form of policy research conducted repetitively by each government. On the other hand, it implies that Korea’s tourism policy research has a mid to long term direction and continuous research is being produced. The research has not been implemented in policies but rather focuses on supporting the government policy.
