Welcome to Research Futures
Research Futures is a collaborative initiative
being led by the University of Chichester, and supported by the
University of Wolverhampton, the University of Northampton, and
IMI University Centre, Lucerne, aimed at highlighting and disseminating
best practice in undergraduate research within the related fields
of Events, Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism.
The principal aim of Research Futures is to celebrate
the wealth and depth of research currently being undertaken by
undergraduate students, and to offer a supportive, yet rigorous
review environment, in which undergraduate students can gain experience
in writing, and disseminating their own research through academic
Research Futures welcomes any aspect of undergraduate
research, and consideration will be given to a broad range of
innovative quantitative and qualitative research methodologies.
Submissions are welcome from individuals or groups, who undertook
research as part of their undergraduate degree programmes. This
may have been as part of an undergraduate dissertation or management
project or other modules that drew on a specific research component.
A postgraduate review panel, drawing on the postgraduate
community from the respective disciplines, reviews submitted papers.
The review panel reports to an editorial panel consisting of a
team of academic staff from the partner Universities. Successful
papers will be published online at www.researchfutures.co.uk.
