Metin Kozak

Professor

I hold Bachelor’s degree from Cukurova University (Turkey), Master’s from Dokuz Eylul University (Turkey) and Ph.D. from Sheffield Hallam University (UK); all relating to tourism and hospitality management. I have published a wider range of articles in top-tier journals such as (i.e. Annals, TM, JTR, IJHM, Cornell Quarterly, JTTM), conference papers in more than 40 countries and books released by Elsevier, Routledge, CABI, Emerald, Springer, Cambridge Scholars Publishing among others. I act as the co-editor of Anatolia and serves as an editorial board member of over 20 journals including Annals, JTR, JTTM, JBR, and TA. In addition, I have served as an ad-hoc reviewer for many other tourism and hospitality journals. As a Research Fellow and Visiting Professor, I was affiliated with the University of Namur (1 September 2005-1 September 2006, Belgium), College of Charleston (20 June-10 July 2005, USA), Bournemouth University (1 July-15 August 2012, UK), Hong Kong Polytechnic University (1 August 2014-1 August 2015, Hong Kong SAR), and Bournemouth University (1 July-1 September 2016, UK). On the one side, I am involved in several tourism-based national and international research projects, particularly with my partners based in Europe and the US. Developing such partnerships has resulted in publishing quality journal papers, conference presentations and book chapters. On the other side, I have been invited as a guest lecturer to conduct seminars or lectures in more than 15 countries worldwide. I also have an extensive experience in taking parts in the organization of various tourism and hospitality conferences, e.g. ATMC, Graduate Research Conference in Tourism and Hospitality, Interdisciplinary Tourism Research Conference, and IAST, TRC, AIEST, and CPTHL. I am the co-founder of the above first three conferences. As of September 2016, my works have received over 350 citations in ISI-referenced journals and over 7,000 citations counted by Google Scholar. Recently, I was ranked among the top 25 prolific tourism researchers in terms of the number of publications from 1985 to 2004 (Zhao & Ricthie, 2007) and from 2000 to 2009 (Park, Phillips, Cantr & Abbott, 2011). I was also ranked among the top 50 prolific scholars in terms of the frequency of cited articles (McKercher, 2008). I am elected as the Fellow of the International Academy for the Study of Tourism (Hong Kong, SAR) and Tourist Research Centre (Austria). My research interests entail quality management, benchmarking, destination management and marketing, consumer behaviour, competitiveness, and branding. My current affiliation is with Dokuz Eylul University, Turkey.

Hakkımda


Çukurova Üniversitesi İktisadi ve İdari Bilimler Fakültesi Turizm İşletmeciliği ve Otelcilik Yüksekokulu (1991) mezunuyum. Yüksek Lisans derecemi Dokuz Eylül Üniversitesi’nden (1993) aldım. Yüksek Lisans tezimin bir parçası olarak arz ile ilgili çeşitli faktörlerin Türkiye’deki uluslararası turizm talebine etkisini analiz ettim. Sheffield Hallam Üniversitesi’nde tamamladığım Doktora tezimde (2000), tezinde kıyaslama (benchmarking) yaklaşımının tesisler, turist tatmini ve turist harcamaları gibi çeşitli kriterler çerçevesinde uluslararası turizm destinasyonlarında uygulanabilirliğini araştırdım. Hem Türkiye, hem de İspanya tatil bölgelerinin ele alındığı bu çalışma, Avrupa Kalite Yönetimi Vakfı (European Foundation for Quality Management) tarafından Toplam Kalite Yönetimi alanında en iyi üç Doktora tezi arasında gösterildi. Doktora tezi dışında aldığım diğer bazı akademik ödüllerim de bulunmaktadır. 2008 ve 2009 yıllarında, sırasıyla ABD ve Avusturya’da düzenlenen kongrelerde sunulan bildirilerle en iyi çalışma ödülünü, 2003 yılında da TYD Yılın Turizm Araştırmacısı ödülünü aldım.

I. Eğitim–Öğretim Açısından Sorumluluk
1992 yılında Muğla Üniversitesi’nde Öğretim Görevlisi olarak başladığım görevimi 2012 yılında Profesör olarak tamamlayarak Dokuz Eylül Üniversitesi’ne geçtim. Ayrıca 2008–2010 yılları arasında Muğla Üniversitesi Turizm İşletmeciliği ve Otelcilik Yüksekokulu Müdürlüğü ve Üniversite Senato Üyeliği görevlerini yürüttüm. Yöneticilik anlayışım, uluslararası düzeyde rekabet edebilmek için çağdaş tekniklerin kullanımı ile öğrencilerin en son bilgi ve teknoloji ile donatılması üzerine oldu. Bu kapsamda, yurtdışı birçok üniversitede misafir öğretim üyesi olarak ders vererek elde ettiğim deneyimimi kendi derslerime ve okuluma aşılamaya özen gösterdim. Misafir öğretim üyesi olarak bulunduğum üniversitelerden bazıları şu şekilde sıralanabilir: Balerik Adaları Üniversitesi (İspanya), Sheffield Hallam Üniversitesi (İngiltere), Oxford Brookes Üniversitesi (İngiltere), Brock Üniversitesi (Kanada), Esfahan Üniversitesi (İran), Lulea Üniversitesi (İsveç), Valensiya Üniversitesi (İspanya), Kodolonyi Janos Üniversitesi (Macaristan), Namur Üniversitesi (Belçika), Charleston Üniversitesi (ABD), Algarve Üniversitesi (Portekiz), Ulusal Chai Üniversitesi (Tayvan), Peng-hu Adası Üniversitesi (Tayvan), Assumption Üniversitesi (Tayland), Uygulamalı Bilimler Üniversitesi (Finlandiya), Tahran Üniversitesi (İran), Astana Gumilyov Üniversitesi (Kazakistan). Ayrıca, 2005-2006 yılları arasında Belçika’nın Namur Üniversitesi Ekonomi ve Sosyal Bilimler Fakültesi Pazarlama Bölümü’nde görev yaparak, eğitim-öğretim ve araştırma konusunda buradan elde ettiğim deneyimimi derslerimde paylaşmaktayım. Halen yürütmekte olduğu dersler arasında Tüketici Davranışları, Turizm Pazarlaması ve Araştırma Yöntemleri yer almaktadır. Halen görevli bulunduğum Hong Kong Polytechnic Üniversitesi’nde de Yüksek Lisans düzeyinde Araştırma Yöntemleri, Turizm Pazarlaması ve Stratejik Yönetim derslerini vermekteyim.

II. Araştırma Açısından Sorumluluk
Yurtiçinde ve yurtdışında yürütülen ve bilimsel yayın olarak akademik ortamlarda yer alan pek çok araştırmaya sahibim. Akademik ilgi alanlarım, kalite yönetimi, kıyaslama, destinasyon yönetimi ve pazarlaması, tüketici davranışları, rekabet edebilirlik, markalaşma, nicel araştırma yöntemleri ve performans ölçümleme üzerine olup, İngilizce ve Türkçe dillerinde 90 civarında makalem bulunmaktadır. Ayrıca turizm, konaklama, bölgesel gelişme, uluslararası yönetim ve uluslararası pazarlama alanlarında İngiltere, ABD, Danimarka, Kanada, Portekiz, Çin, İsviçre, Yunanistan, Hırvatistan, İspanya, Avustralya, Avusturya, İrlanda, İtalya, Malezya, Birleşik Arap Emirlikleri, Hollanda, Almanya, Kore, Japonya, Polonya, Tayland, Fransa, Norveç ve Türkiye gibi birçok ülkede düzenlenen uluslararası konferanslarda 60 üzerinde bildiri sundum.

Ekim 2014 itibariyle, eserlerime 800 (ISI) ve 4500 (Google Scholar) dolayında atıf almış olmam da, tamamladığım çalışmaların sosyal fayda anlamında önemine işaret etmektedir. Bu kapsamda, 1998-2007 yılları arasında en fazla atıf alan turizm araştırmacıları sıralamasında ilk 30 içerisinde yer aldım (McKercher, 2008). Yine 1985-2004 yılları arasında en fazla yayın yapanlar sıralamasında da ilk 36 içerisinde (Zhao & Ritchie, 2007); 2000-2009 yılları arası yayın sıralamasında da, turizm alanında 13., turizm-otelcilik alanında 24. sırada yer aldım (Park, Philips, Canter & Abbott, 2011).

Doktora yıllarından bu yana, tüketici davranışları modelinin birçok aşamasını ayrıntılı inceleyerek sonuçlarını makale, konferans bildirisi ve kitap halinde bilim dünyası ile paylaştım. 2005-2006 yılları arasında ziyaretçi araştırmacı olarak bulunduğum Namur Üniversitesi İşletme Fakültesi’nde (Facultés Universitaires Notre-Dame de la Paix) Prof.Dr. Alain Decrop ile birlikte, karar verme stratejileri üzerine çalışmalarda bulundum. Bu konuda oldukça geniş kapsamlı bir araştırma fırsatı yakalamam ve buradan elde ettiğim çıktıları son yıllarda yayın haline getirmem ile birlikte, tüketici davranışları modelinin bütün aşamalarını ampirik araştırmalar anlamında tamamlama şansına sahip oldum. İlerleyen yıllarda bu alanda daha spesifik konular üzerine yoğunlaşmayı planlamaktayım.

III. Sosyal Sorumluluk
Bizden sonra gelecek olan genç nesle iyi bir model olmayı amaç edindiğim için bu kapsamdaki çalışmalarım sosyal sorumluluk bakımından akademik, eğitim-öğretim ve sektör olmak üzere üç grupta ele alınabilir:

  • Akademik anlamda konuşmacı olarak birçok seminer ve toplantıda misafir konuşmacı olarak görev aldım. Anatolia dergisinin eş editörü olarak ve birçok dergide hakemlik yaparak bilginin uluslararası ortamda paylaşımına destek olmaya çalıştım. 1990 yılında Türkçe yayımlanmaya başlayan Anatolia dergisinin günümüzde uluslararası bir kimlik kazanmasında önemli rol oynadım ve Türkiye’nin böyle bir dergi ile dünyada temsil edilmesi konusunda her zaman gurur duydum. İçinde Annals of Tourism Research, Journal of Travel Research ve Tourism Analysis gibi dergilerin de yer aldığı 25 üzeri uluslararası akademik derginin hakem grubunda yer almaktayım. Diğer taraftan, pek çok diğer akademik derginin de zaman zaman hakem grubunda yer almakla birlikte, Tourism Review, International Journal of Culture, Society and Leisure, Journal of Hospitality Management and Marketing, International Journal of Tourism Research ve International Journal of Tourism Policy dergilerinin de misafir editörü olarak görev yaptım.

Son 10 yıldır organizasyonunu üstlendiğim birçok konferans ile geniş bir kesimden araştırmacıların bir noktada buluşarak network oluşturmasına ve bilgi paylaşımına aracılık etmekteyim. Mayis 2016 döneminde düzenlenecek olan Lisansüstü Turizm Araştırmaları Kongresi’nin (7th World Graduate Research Conference in Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure) geleneksel bir bilimsel etkinlik haline getirilerek turizm alanında birçok kesim ve ülkeden araştırmacıların Türkiye’ye gelerek bildiri sunmalarını amaç edinmekteyim. Benzer bir amaçla, 2012 yılından itibaren uluslararası düzeyde yer alan olan Disiplinlerarası Turizm Araştırmaları Kongresi (Interdisciplinary Tourism Research Conference) için de yola çıktım. Bu iki etkinliği de, Prof.Dr. Nazmi Kozak ile birlikte tasarlamakta ve organize etmekteyiz. Uluslararası konferans etkinlikleri içerisinde turizm pazarlaması alanında eksiklik hissetmesi sonucunda 2005 yılında Advances in Tourism Marketing Conference dizisine başladım ve kısa sürede bütün kesimler tarafından ilgi gören bir etkinlik haline gelmesine öncülük ettim. Bu konferansın bir sonraki oturumu Finlandiya (2015) tarafından yerine getirilecektir. Bu konferansların yanı sıra, IAST, CPTHL ve AIEST gibi diğer bazı köklü uluslararası konferansların da Türkiye’de düzenlenmesine aracılık ettim.

Ayrıca her yıl geleneksel olarak düzenlenen Araştırma Yöntemleri Semineri etkinliklerinde Türkçe ve İngilizce dillerinde uyulması gereken akademik yazım kuralları konusunda dersler vererek, özellikle turizm alanı dışından gelen genç araştırmacılarla, ulusal ve uluslararası düzeyde nitelikli yayın yapma konusundaki deneyimlerimi paylaştım. Akademik yazım kuralları seminerine bugüne kadar katılan öğrenci sayısı 100 dolayındadır. Sosyal sorumluluk anlamında diğer bir önemli etkinliğim ise, Prof.Dr. Nazmi Kozak ile birlikte, Akademik Turizm Eğitimi Arama Konferansı dizisini başlatmak olmuştur. Ülkemizin farklı üniversitelerinden akademisyenlerin ve zaman zaman da sektör temsilcilerinin davet edildiği bu toplantılarda turizm eğitiminin şimdiki ve gelecekteki durumu hakkında beyin fırtınası yapılırken, en son toplantının gündemini oluşturan turizmin bilimsel konumu ile ilgili tartışmalar, ulusal ve uluslararası bilim kamuoyunda geniş yankı uyandırmıştır.

Pek çok ulusal ve uluslararası turizm örgütünün de üyesi olarak görev yapmaktayım. Üye olduğum turizm oluşumları arasında; Uluslararası Turizm Uzmanları Birliği (Association of International Experts in Tourism–AIEST–2007 yılından itibaren, İsviçre), Uluslararası Turizm Araştırmacıları Ağı (International Tourism Researchers’ Network–TRINET–2007 yılından itibaren, ABD), Türk Pazarlama Araştırmacıları Birliği (2007 yılından itibaren–ABD), Turizm Araştırma Merkezi (Tourist Research Centre–2007 yılından itibaren, Belçika), Endüstriyel Pazarlama ve e-Ticaret Bölümü (Division of Industrial Marketing & e-Commerce–Luleå University of Technology–2006 yılından itibaren, İsveç), Tüketim ve Dinlence Araştırma Merkezi (Center for Research on Consumption and Leisure–University of Namur–FUNDP–2005 yılından itibaren, Belçika), Uluslararası Kültür, Turizm ve Konaklama Araştırmaları Akademisi (International Academy of Culture, Tourism and Hospitality Research–2005 yılından itibaren, ABD), Konaklama İşletmeciliği Merkezi (Centre for Hospitality Management–Sheffield Hallam University–2000 yılından itibaren–İngiltere) yer almaktadır. 27 Mayıs 2011 tarihi itibariyle, Uluslararası Kültür, Turizm ve Konaklama Araştırmaları Akademisi Başkanlığı’nı üstlendim ve 2014 yilinda tamamladım.

Bu görevlerimin yanı sıra, pek çok ulusal ve uluslararası kongrede yürütücü, bilim kurulu üyesi gibi çok sayıda görev üstlendim.

  • Eğitim-öğretim anlamında 2004 yılında Muğla Üniversitesi’nde Erasmus programının başlatıcısı olarak önemli bir görev üstlenerek 2005–2012 yılları arasında 200 civarında öğrencinin bir Avrupa Birliği ülkesinde ve 50 dolayında yabancı öğrencinin de Muğla Üniversitesi’nde eğitim öğretim olanağı yakalamasına aracılık ettim. Birçok öğrencinin yurtiçi ve dışında akademik ve sektörel anlamda kariyer elde etmesinde motive edici çalışmalarda bulundum. Bu sayılar giderek artış göstermektedir. Bu anlamdaki ilkem, yetiştirdiğim öğrencilerin uluslararası nitelikte eğitim-öğretim olanakları ile mezun olmalarına, yine uluslararası düzeyde rekabet edebilecek bilgi ve beceri donanımına sahip olarak iş yaşamına atılmalarına destek olmaktır. Ek olarak, yurtiçi ve dışı birçok Yüksek Lisans ve Doktora öğrencisine dersler vermemin yanı sıra, danışmanlıklarını da üstlenerek akademik sistem içinde kendilerini geliştirmelerine destek vermeye çalıştım.
  • Sektörel sorumluluk anlamında ise, sektör tarafından düzenlenen birçok toplantıda davetli konuşmacı olarak görev aldım. Bunlardan en önemlisi Avrupa Yatırım Bankası’nın daveti üzerine 2008 yılında ITB Fuarı’nda düzenlenen bir panelde Türkiye’nin turizm politikalarını anlatmak olmuştur. Yaptığım araştırmaların sonuçlarını sektör çalışanları ile paylaşmaya çaba göstermekteyim. Ayrıca sektör ile işbirliğini geliştirecek çok sayıda etkinliğe öncülük ettim. Sektörün gereksinim duyduğu nitelikli ve öz güveni yüksek öğrencilerin kendi ortamlarında sektör temsilcileri ile görüşerek istihdam olanaklarını görüşmeleri ve karşılıklı görüş alışverişinde bulunmaları gerektiği anlayışından yola çıkarak Turizmde Okul-Sektör Buluşması isimli etkinliği başlatarak yüzlerce sektör çalışanının Üniversite ortamını tanımalarına ve binlerce öğrencinin de kendi okulunda sektörle birebir iletişime geçmelerine aracılık ettim.

 

2003–2012 yılları arasında, Muğla Üniversitesi Turizm İşletmeciliği Araştırma ve Uygulama Merkezi Müdürü olarak görev yaptım. Böyle bir görevi yerine getirirken izlediğim ilke de, uluslararası düzeyde kabul görmüş bilimsel araştırma yöntemlerini kullanarak sektörün beklentilerine dönük bilgi üretilmesinin gerekliliği ve bu bilginin eğitim-öğretim ve araştırma bağlamında ulusal ve uluslararası düzeyde ilgili taraflar ile paylaşımı konusunda her türlü fiziksel ve beşeri kaynakların harekete geçirilmesine öncülük edilmesi üzerine olmuştur.

Yaşam felsefem, başkalarının başarısızlığı ile değil, kendi başarım (başarısına katkıda bulunduğum diğer bireylerin başarısı da dahildir) ile mutlu olmaktır. Yaşarken öğrenme ve öğretmeyi, öğrenir ve öğretirken de yaşamayı kendime temel ilke edindim. Mesleki anlamdaki düşüncem ise, “kendisi için çalışan, aynı zamanda bağlı bulunduğu kurumu, toplumu ve bütün insanlık için çalışır” diyen Adam Smith ile örtüşmektedir.

Halen Dokuz Eylül Üniversitesi Reha Midilli Foça Turizm Fakültesi’nde Profesör olarak görev yapmakta olup, 1 Ağustos 2014–31 Temmuz 2015 tarihleri arasında da Hong Kong Polytechnic Üniversitesi’nde Misafir Profesör olarak ders vermekteyim.
