This article aims to examine the topic of China’s recent doctoral thesis research in the disciplinary fields of management and tourism management. A content analysis was conducted on abstracts and title information of tourism management doctoral theses. The study revealed that doctoral theses in standalone tourism management doctoral programmes frequently adopt destination studies as a topic. However, doctoral studies affiliated to other management disciplines/study fields often have competitiveness in different tourism-related aspects as a research topic.
