Abstract

Education quality and tourism faculties have a crucial role as qualified personnel is essential in the tourism industry; however, few studies have investigated this field using the bibliometric visualization method. The main aim of this study is to understand the trends in scientific publications about "education quality" and "tourism faculties" and how authors, institutions, and countries interact in these studies. To be able to understand that bibliometric methods within scientometrics were used via Citespace to merge two terms from 2002 to 2021. Data were obtained from the WoS database in January 2022. After the extraction process, a total of 711 publications were found that were linked to education quality and tourism faculties, and a set of co-occurrence, co-cited, and high-frequency word analyses were used. Basic 5 conclusions are derived based on the analysis method. When the five conclusions are examined, the methodology of this study, which is new for educational sciences and tourism, will contribute to the increase of knowledge and epistemology cumulatively in the field. Also, it will lead to the emergence of more publications on related subjects by directing the researchers to the less studied areas. And additional scholarly collaborations may be able to improve the depth of this research.
