Исследования в сфере халяль-туризма и гостеприимства: библиометрический анализ
The main goal of the research is to identify the currently forming research problems in the area of halal tourism and hospitality which were reflected in the publications of international and Russian authors. The research design is based on the application of methods and tools of bibliometric analysis (Bibliometrix R-package and the “statistical reports”), word cloud formation method. As a result, sources with the largest number of publications were identified, leading research centres with the largest number of publications and citations of publications on this topic were determined as well as the evolutionary stages of priority research areas were pointed out. The limitations of the study are a limited number of publications on halal tourism represented in the Russian problem field. To this end, it is not possible to ensure the comparability of samples from Russian and foreign publications. Besides, due to the difference in the organization of international and Russian citation bases, there is a necessity to use different bibliometric analysis tools, which is also a limitation of the study. The research results provide an opportunity to compare the stages of development of halal tourism research in Russian and international academic literature to determine the place of the Russian studies within the global context.
