The research articles were categorized and analyzed according to their objectives, journals of publication, keywords, application areas, research methods used, data collection techniques and findingsFindingsIt was been determined that the research articles in the field of sports tourism contributed significantly to the sports tourism literature and to the cumulative progress of the field.Research limitations/implicationsThe implications of this study is that only publications in the field of sports tourism (in the tourism category) indexed in the Web of Science between 2014 and 2018 were examined.Practical implicationsStudies to be carried out in the field of sports tourism should be seen as continuations, rather than repetitions, of one another.
