Ithaca, NY, January 4, 2010 – The Cornell Center for Hospitality Research (CHR) has issued its 2010 Cornell Hospitality Compendium. Like all of the CHR's publications, the 2010 compendium can be downloaded at no charge from the CHR website at http//www.hotelschool.cornell.edu/research/chr/pubs/reports/2010.html. The compendium presents summaries of all 2009 CHR publications in one convenient package. This includes Cornell Hospitality Reports, Cornell Hospitality Tools, and Cornell Hospitality Roundtable Proceedings. In addition, the compendium compiles summaries from the Cornell Hospitality Quarterly for articles published in 2009 by the faculty of the Cornell School of Hotel Administration.
"The compendium presents a graphic record of the groundbreaking work done by the CHR Research Fellows," said Professor Rohit Verma, CHR executive director. "But it also is a useful document for managers in the hospitality industry and related industries, because it contains so much potentially valuable information." The compendium's summaries are linked to the original research reports and tools, to allow CHR web users to download any report of interest, again at no charge. Cornell Hospitality Quarterly articles are available at a reasonable charge, by arrangement with Sage Publishing (http://cqx.sagepub.com/).
Reports and tools presented in the 2010 compendium cover a wide variety of topic areas, including new categories for innovation and spas. In addition to numerous reports focusing on hotel and restaurant management, CHR researchers also have addressed such diverse areas as communication, finance, and human resources. Of particular interest is the first in a series of reports profiling innovative service concepts, in the hospitality industry and beyond.
Thanks to the support of the CHR partners listed below, all publications posted on the center's website are available free of charge, at http://www.chr.cornell.edu/.
