ABSTRACT

Using the method of exploratory data analysis and text mining analysis, this study analyzed the regional tourism plan research project structure of South Korea from 2014 to 2018 in terms of research grant amount, research types and funding institutions. It also explored the relationships among regional tourism research topics through a semantic approach. In order to achieve the goals of the study, ‘Actual State of Tourism Development Plans’, which were established by ‘Central and Local Governments and Policy Task’, were used for the data analyses. Results showed that the budget of each regional tourism planning projects was not proportional to the annual growth rate of the number of local tourism planning projects. It was also found that local governments were the major funding agencies for the regional tourism development plan projects. Only a few of the research projects were funded by business sectors or local communities. Results also showed that Gangwon province conducted the most number of regional tourism planning projects, while Jeollanam province used the most amount of research money for the regional tourism planning. In terms of the research topic numbers, basic regional tourism master planning were the most and it was followed by the master plan changes. Results of this study could be used for an appropriate decision making for the regional tourism planning research directions and the amount of research grant in the future.
