A critical role of the Centre is to communicate the new knowledge its team creates, to a wide range of tourism and outdoor recreation policy makers, planners, managers, and operators in tourism related organizations. It does this by encouraging its members to share the information produced through participation in a wide variety of publication, seminar, workshop and conference presentation opportunities.
The Centre is particularly interested in highlighting the achievements of its graduate students, the following are examples of academic articles published by members of the CTPR in the 2008-2010 period that directly involved the participation graduate students:
