Abstract

Many tourist brochures carry the message "see it before it is spoilt" (Selwyn,1996). Some reports suggest that the global expansion of the tourism industry consists of a process of discovering "unspoilt" places, exploiting them until they are "spoilt", and then moving on to develop a seemingly endless supply of "unspoilt" and "pristine" places (Turner and Ash, 1975; Selwyn,1996).

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
