Résumé

The objective of this paper was to evaluate the scientific value of econometric tourism demand studies. Based on a questionnaire answered by ourselves we analyzed articles published in Annals of Tourism Research, Journal of Travel Research, Tourism Management, and Tourism Economics during the period 2007 to 2017. The evaluation showed that current scientific practice generally failed to differentiate between substantive (economic) significance and statistical significance, and used these terms interchangeably in many cases. In line with these flaws, most authors avoided discussing the estimation results in terms of their size and their reliability, as well as failing to adequately address the limitations of their studies and to justify the chosen methods.
