Abstract

This paper aims to identify the knowledge creation and dissemination of strategic management (SM) in the hospitality literature using citation and co-citation analysis. A database of 10,782 SM-related articles and 306,701 reference appearances in seven leading hospitality journals over the period 1960–2020 was derived from the Scopus repository. Intellectual mapping of the 100 most-cited SM-related reference appearances was visualized using VOSviewer. The outcomes of this study show that hospitality-focused SM articles outweighed mainstream business-focused SM articles in the hospitality literature. Seven diverse SM research clusters were identified. SM research in the hospitality field is heavily focused on practical implications and relationship testing. Theory application and theory development are required to strengthen the current SM knowledge in the hospitality literature.
