I had a wonderful vacation in London last month. Everywhere we went they were making preparations for the Olympic Games. We even saw the new Gold Medal on exhibit in the British Museum. If you are thinking of doing research on this timely topic, I have good news for you. Emerald, one of our database providers, has a Research in the News Blog where they are offering articles related to the 2012 London Olympics. These free articles are from journals not usually included in Lynn’s Emerald subcription. These articles take a broad look at some of the key issues surrounding the hosting and running of “mega” events. Topics covered include logistics, impact on host countries, advertising and tourism.
