Abstract

Purpose

Aiming to investigate the direct and indirect effects of community involvement on residents’ life satisfaction, this study builds a conceptual framework through the mediation effect of perceived impacts and trust in government based on social exchange theory. The moderating effect of place attachment among these variables is proposed and empirically examined.

Design/methodology/approach

The conceptual model and causal relationships were estimated by adopting structural equation modeling, a serial mediation and moderation analysis. A total of 362 valid questionnaire data from residents in five rural tourism communities of China were collected and used for data analysis.

Findings

The results indicate that residents’ community involvement directly influences their life satisfaction and indirectly through perceived benefits and trust in government. Place attachment is also found to moderate the effect of community involvement on residents’ life satisfaction.

Originality/value

This study tests the effect of community involvement on residents’ life satisfaction that evolves from linking community involvement to perceived tourism impacts and trust in government to increase life satisfaction within the rural tourism context. It simultaneously detects place attachment as a moderating variable. The findings of this study can provide valuable insights for rural tourism managers to improve residents’ life satisfaction.

目的

为了探究社区参与对居民生活满意度的直接和间接影响, 本研究基于社会交换理论构建了通过感知影响和政府信任作为中介效应的理论模型。同时, 提出并实证检验了地方依恋在这些变量关系中的调节作用。

设计/方法/手段

采用结构方程模型和一系列的中介和调节分析来估计概念模型和变量之间的因果关系。从中国五个乡村旅游社区收集了362份有效问卷并进行数据分析。

研究结果

结果显示, 居民的社区参与不仅直接影响他们的生活满意度, 并且通过感知收益和政府信任对他们的生活满意度产生间接影响。研究还发现,地方依恋可以调节社区参与对居民生活满意度的影响关系。

创意/价值

本研究探讨了乡村旅游可持续发展中社区参与对生活满意度的影响, 这种影响从链接社区参与与旅游感知效应到政府信任, 从而提高生活满意度,同时检验了地方依恋的调节作用。本研究能够为乡村旅游管理者提高居民生活满意度提供有价值的建议。

Propósito

Con el objetivo de investigar los efectos directos e indirectos de la participación de la comunidad en la satisfacción con la vida de los residentes, este estudio construye un marco conceptual a través del efecto mediador de los impactos percibidos y la confianza en el gobierno basado en la teoría del intercambio social. Se propone y examina empíricamente el efecto moderador del apego local entre estas variables.

Diseño/Metodología/Enfoque

La relación causal entre el modelo conceptual y la estructura se estima a través del modelo de ecuación estructural, y se lleva a cabo una serie de análisis de mediación y regulación. Los datos fueron recolectados de 362 cuestionarios válidos de cinco comunidades de turismo rural en China.

Resultados

Los resultados muestran que la participación comunitaria de los residentes influye directamente en su satisfacción con la vida, e indirectamente a través de sus ingresos percibidos y la confianza en el Gobierno. El estudio también encontró que el apego local puede regular la participación de la comunidad en la satisfacción de los residentes con la vida.

Originalidad/valor

Este estudio explora el impacto de la participación comunitaria en la satisfacción con la vida en el desarrollo sostenible del turismo rural, que va desde la vinculación de la participación comunitaria y la percepción turística hasta la confianza del Gobierno, mejorando así la satisfacción con la vida. Al mismo tiempo, se examina la función reguladora del apego local. Los resultados de este estudio proporcionan información de referencia valiosa para que los administradores del turismo rural mejoren la satisfacción de los residentes con la vida.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to propose an adaptive robust controller for coupled attitude and orbit control of rigid spacecraft based on dual quaternion in the presence of external disturbances and model uncertainties.

Design/methodology/approach

First, based on dual quaternion, a theoretical model of the relative motion for rigid spacecraft is introduced. Then, an adaptive robust controller which can realize coordinated control of attitude and orbit is designed in the existence of external disturbances and model uncertainties.

Findings

This paper takes advantage of the Lyapunov function which can guarantee the asymptotic stabilization of the whole system in the existence of parameters uncertainties. Simulation results show that the proposed controller is feasible and effective.

Originality/value

This paper proposes a coupled attitude and orbit adaptive robust controller based on dual quaternion. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed controller can achieve higher control performance in the presence of parameters uncertainties.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to apply what can be learned from the emergence of nature tourism to understand some current and future trends of tourism.

Design/methodology/approach

This study adopted the evolutionary paradigm for investigation.

Findings

The emergence of nature tourism in early medieval China can be attributed to four major factors, including transformation of value orientations, seeking longevity, interest in suburbs and population migration.

Research limitations/implications

Historical studies help understand the current and future trends. When the contributing factors for nature tourism are linked to the contemporary world, it can be found that these factors are still playing a part in shaping tourism trends or patterns in their original or alternative forms. These trends or patterns are worthy of scholarly investigations.

Originality/value

This paper offers a comprehensive understanding of the origins of nature tourism.
