Topic prominence is regarded as a recent indicator that reveals the present momentum of a certain topic by considering the citations, views, and CiteScore thresholds. Topic prominence has been examined in prior research within different contexts, however, there is no known study exploring this trend within tourism and hospitality literature. Therefore, this study aims to analyse and map the topic prominence of Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality Management (TLHM) research by focusing on Switzerland as a case study. The collected data included 337 articles published in 46 journals indexed in Scopus under the subject category of TLHM. The findings concluded that topic prominence is an important indicator for measuring scientific research productivity, including peer-reviewed articles. More particularly, it is revealed that the investigation of topic prominence provides an overall clearer picture of Swiss TLHM research. This study contributes to tourism studies by discussing the usage of the topic prominence metric for tourism and hospitality publications. It also presents practical implications for tourism research managers and researchers by providing solid insights into funded research, scholars’ and institutions’ performance, and momentum of topics associated with the Swiss TLHM articles.
