    "Dimensions of Friendship in Shared Travel Experiences"
    2019 in: Leisure Sciences.

    Quality relationships are fundamental to human well-being. Friendships are voluntary relationships between autonomous individuals that can shed light on how bonding and intimacy are experienced in tourism environments. Adopting a qualitative, humanist approach, this article explores the topic of friendship in tourism. Through a thematic analysis of 12 in-depth interviews, we examine how friendships are experienced by Serbian young to middle-age adults in tourism settings. It was revealed five main dimensions underpin friendship relationships in a tourism context: intimacy of spaces, quality time, disclosure, navigation of challenges and relational realisations, or a sense of learning about oneself through shared experiences. Opportunities are suggested for researchers to extend these research findings.

    "One color fits all: product category color norms and (a)typical package colors"
    2019 in: Review of Managerial Science.

    Despite the growing amount of research on different aspects of product package
    design, there is lack of empirical evidence with regard to how package color perceptions may influence consumer preferences. Based on categorization theory, the present paper explores responses to package colors that conform or do not conform to product category color norms. Results of two experiments show that atypical package colors implicate negative consequences to the brand. Findings indicate that perceived package color atypicality increases consumers’ skepticism and, contrary to expectations, decreases interest. These affective reactions negatively influence consumers’ product attitude which subsequently translates into lower purchase intention. The results provide important insights for theory and practice.

    "Let me entertain you – Increasing overall store satisfaction through digital signage in retail waiting areas"
    2019 in: Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services. Volume: 47. Pages: 331-338

    Despite the growing interest in waiting perception management, no study has yet explored how environmental distracters in retailing waiting areas influence overall store satisfaction. This field experiment revealed that digital signage mounted at the checkout area of a grocery store positively influenced overall store satisfaction by distracting shoppers from monitoring queuing time. The presence of a digital signage system reduced the perceived waiting time while also creating favorable waiting experiences. However, only the latter influenced store satisfaction. This research highlights the importance of creating favorable waiting experiences.

  • "Taking Feyerabend to the Next Level: On Linear Thinking, Indoctrination, and Academic Killer Bees"
    2019 in: The DATABASE for Advances in Information Systems. Volume: 50. Issue number: 1 Pages: 77

    Not at all did I expect the huge amount of positive and constructive feedback that I received on my short paper on Paul Feyerabend’s philosophy which was published in issue 49(2) of the DATA BASE for Advances in Information Systems. More than two decades after his death, his provocative ideas are apparently still capable of triggering an inspiring academic debate. In this paper I will comment on the thoughtful rejoinders from Burton-Jones, Gregor and Myers. I will also outline why, in spite of their well-founded criticism, I still believe that Feyerabendian thinking is most appropriate for IS research: Much more so than Popperian or Kuhnian. I will illustrate my reasoning by referring to several experiences with the academic double-blind peer review process. I will not only criticize academia’s existing deficiencies, but also suggest a potential cure. My universal remedy is based on Feyerabend’s philosophy of relativism, tolerance and pluralism, which he not so cleverly disguised as anarchism. Recently, Chua et al. (2018) suggested changes in the rules of our academic review system. I do not aim at the system, but rather at the underlying mindset. If we allow him, Feyerabend can help us with that.

    "Accessible and equitable tourism services for travelers with disabilities: From a charitable to a commercial footing."
    2019 CSR, Sustainability, Ethics & Governance

    Until recently, charities and nonprofits have been the primary providers of recreational services for persons with disabilities (PwD). Increased pressure for a self-sustaining financial existence, as well as the acknowledgment of the value that the market of PwD has, have led to such services increasingly finding their way in competitive commercial environments as well. The chapter traces the development of inclusive holidays for persons with and without visual impairment based on sighted guiding from the historical changes in the understanding of the concept of disability as well as the provision of recreational and tourism services for PwD. The author argues that reverse integration – the approach that these holidays follow – is a viable and efficient way of offering equitable tourism services, particularly when businesses embrace social entrepreneurship. The chapter is built on the assumption that offering accessible and equitable tourism products for PwD is an integral element of corporate sustainability and responsibility in the tourism indus-try.
