No longer than two pages, a brief should clearly and concisely explain the major results of the paper and their relevance and usefulness to the hospitality industry. Briefs should be written for a broad, non-academic audience.
A type of publication that describes a real or fictitious hospitality-related business situation or dilemma that illustrates a concept or theory. A case study should include the minimal amount of background information necessary for undergraduate- or graduate-level students to apply their existing knowledge to work out the case. Tables, charts, and graphs are helpful, but the textual details should not be overexplanatory or give too much away.
A recurring record of data pertinent to the hospitality industry.
A concise, specific précis highlighting key points and essential lessons from a roundtable. Like a report, a proceeding should be written with a practitioner audience in mind and focus on actionable suggestions from the discussion.
