The International Journal of Hospitality Management is one of the leading scientific journals publishing high-quality research applied to the hospitality industry since 1982. The current paper aims to provide a detailed analysis of the impact of IJHM in the last twenty-two years, using Data Science techniques, namely Data Visualization, Text Mining, and Network theory. This research is based on a comprehensive bibliometric review, including top keywords, top terms, top productive and influential authors, top productive countries/regions, researched topics, topics publication trends, most cited and influential papers, author networks, keywords networks, and affiliation networks. The analysis highlighted several interesting facts, such as (1) the impact of open-access papers not differing from regular papers, (2) sustainability and online reviews are among the most cited topics, and (3) there is an increase in the diversity of topics being published. These findings are essential for authors considering publishing in IJHM and for the journal’s editors.
