2024 Call for Case Study Competition & Publication Series


ICHRIE and Johnson & Wales University JHTC Case Study Competition

Call for Case Studies

All case studies submitted to the ICHRIE Case Study Competition are peer-reviewed and considered for publication in the ICHRIE electronic journal titled Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases. The three most highly evaluated and commented case studies will receive prestigious (financial and material) prizes, recognition, and promotion at the ICHRIE Annual Conference and other promotional material.

Submission Guidelines

The case studies may focus on any topic and subject area related to tourism and hospitality education and industry. Case studies may be compiled from field research, published sources and/or generalized experience. Case studies do not have to follow a specific structure. However, each case study is expected to include sections related to the following topics:

  • A background of the subject organization and/or of the topic
  • An analysis of the dilemma and/or the teaching objective
  • A section explaining the questions and dilemmas of the case study
  • A related bibliography and additional reading

The case study must be of a maximum of 5,000 words excluding figures, tables, annexes, and bibliography. Each case study submission must be accompanied by a teaching note for which there is no world limit (although a teaching note of a minimum of 1,000 words is expected). The case studies and the teaching notes will be evaluated against three criteria: content, theoretical underpinning, and presentation. Previous winning case studies may be viewed here.


Case studies must adhere to and follow the submission guidelines of case study writing.

Submission Deadline

The deadline for submitting case studies to the 2024 ICHRIE Case Study Competition is 16 April 2024 (11:59 pm, EST), and must be submitted through the following submission site: Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases.
