Abstrakt: This chapter presents how e-tourism mirrors in three scientific databases: the Web of Knowledge, Scopus and Google Scholar. Based on the data from these databases, two research questions are answered: How is the number of scientific papers on e-tourism going to develop in the future? What is the probable scenario for future tourism development? We estimate a logistic model for the number of scientific papers in all three databases. Our main finding concerning the first question is that e-tourism as a scientific field is behind its zenith already. Our main finding concerning the second question is that e-tourism supports transition from organized to individual tourism. For answering the third research question “Is there a link between the number of publications on tourism and economic indicators on tourism?” we use numbers of publications from the Factiva database and economic indicators on tourism from the World Bank web page. Using the CCEMG estimator for panel data we find that statistically important links surely exist, even if the interpretation is sometimes not clear. This finding opens opportunities for subsequent research.
