Abstract: 
This article performs a content analysis on the first 10 volumes of Information Technology & Tourism. A total of 144 articles are classified by six different categories. To identify trends and<br> patterns in themes, the analysis is split into various periods. The objectives of this study include taking a look at the history of the journal to see what progress the scientific information technology<br> and tourism commumty is making in their field. The data support the authors' early impressions of ITT as a primarily interdisciplinary journal dealing largely with human-computer interaction-related<br> issues with an increasing number of articles dealing with business models recently. In addition, the distribution of articles by countries suggests that ITT has become a truly international<br> journal reflecting studies from all parts of the world.
