Detailed Brief for Individual Assessment
The title of the assignment… Write a journal article (case study) for ‘Tourism Management’ following the journal’s guidelines for authors. The paper should address Strategic Tourism Planning issues in Kavos, Corfu. Make sure you identify stakeholders, conflicting interests and power issues and propose viable solutions. You should approach this assignment as a researcher working for Tourism Concern.

Purpose of the assessment task
To demonstrate your ability to thoroughly apply STP theory to practical case studies and evaluate those theories and techniques, as well as to consider solutions to STP issues. You should also consider how proposed solutions impact on different stakeholders and how viable the proposed solutions are.

Specific Instructions:
Produce a report (a journal paper IS a report).
You do NOT need:
– an abstract or executive summary
– table of contents
– terms of reference
– methodology
You can vary the section headings, (e.g. break sections 3 into more focussed sections) and use relevant sub-headings.

Before starting with your paper, consider the following:
1. You are invited to write a journal article (case study) for ‘Tourism Management’ following the journal’s guidelines for authors.
– Find the ‘Tourism Management’ journal guidelines for authors (the relevant part is the one under the title ‘Preparation’ where guidelines are given regarding fonts, references etc (please ignore the Vitae information requested as well as the Essential Title Page Information).
– Identify relevant papers in this journal and see if you find them useful in terms of style and structure.
– Make sure the paper follows the writing style and the presentation style for ‘Tourism Management’.

2. The paper should address Strategic Tourism Planning issues
– Consider where you will find information for Kavos and its planning issues
– Consider the Strategic Tourism Planning level of the destination and apply the relevant theories.
– Look into whether the destination has a Tourism Masterplan or any other kind of plan that even peripherally refers to tourism.
– Address Strategic Tourism Planning issues- identify their causes and propose solutions and/ or critically evaluate measures that have been implemented. You might need to choose to discuss in detail some of the issues you identify.
– Consider the destination stakeholders and how the proposed solutions impact on their interests. Critically assess how realistic your proposals are in relation to political influences of the level you are examining.
– It is better to identify the main issues and discuss them in depth than to identify lots of issues and not investigate them in detail.

It is essential:
• You MUST use a minimum of 10 references from academic books and journals and will receive a lower mark if you rely on web-based material (this does not include electronic books and journals).
• Make sure you fully reference all of your research material. You will be penalised if you miss references in-text or from the reference list / bibliography.
• You must use Harvard referencing. If you are unsure about this please ask a member of the teaching team or seek help from CASE
• You must fully meet the report brief
• Good written English should be used throughout

Tips:
• Use your initiative when researching. Do not simply repeat case material and theories that you have been introduced to in class – extra marks will be gained by finding additional theories and cases.
• Use other case studies to illustrate good practice that could be applied to your case study.
