OSU School of Hospitality and Tourism Management professor Dr. Li Miao has been selected as an executive editor for the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Research (JHTR) by the International Council on Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education (ICHRIE).
Miao will serve a five-year term beginning in 2021, along with colleagues and co-executive editors Dr. Peter Kim of Auckland University in New Zealand and Dr. Jean-Pierre Van der Rest of Leiden University in the Netherlands.
“The Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Research is one of the leading journals in our academic discipline, and we are extremely proud of Dr. Miao’s professional achievement,” said Dr. Brij Thapa, head of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management. “This is not only a big honor and privilege for her to serve but is also significant for our HTM program as it offers a global spotlight for recognition of our research enterprise. I am confident her team will serve effectively and further enhance the research reputation of the journal.”
Miao is looking forward to her tenure as an editor for the publication.
“The Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Research is close to my heart,” she said. “I published my very first research paper in this journal when I was a doctoral student 20 years ago. I am privileged to lead JHTR and through this platform, to continue the work in advancing research and scholarship in the field of hospitality and tourism management. I am also proud to play a small part in our collective effort to continue to raise the visibility of the HTM program at OSU. The institutional support I get as an HTM faculty has been incredible.”
