Games & Tourism Literature Review

This Zotero collection shows the items that I intend to include in my literature review. It is still being developed, with items being selected from a preliminary collection of ~250 items. I’m working my way through the preliminary list in alphabetical title order, so if you don’t see something here, I might not have gotten to it yet. (But if you know of something I ought to include, and it’s not on the preliminary list, please leave a comment and let me know!)

As of 3 May, the sort order isn’t working properly, so it’s not alphabetized. If you want to see the collection on the Zotero website, it’s here:
