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

Family firms have been the subject of various scientific studies. This interest derives not only from their unique characteristics in terms of their management but more specifically in terms of their succession in a dimension that does not impact on other companies in the same way. Hence, and as a complex field of research, this study seeks to map out and analyse the intellectual knowledge on research into family firms in Asian contexts.

Design/methodology/approach

As regards the statistical and analytical methods, the authors made recourse to the bibliometric, co-citation and cluster analysis techniques. In order to evaluate any potential patterns among the articles, the authors analysed the ways in which the articles are jointly cited. This furthermore applied hierarchical cluster analysis to the totality of the articles subject to co-citation analysis within the scope of grouping the interrelated articles into distinct sets. In order to graphically map the bibliographic co-citation analysis, the authors deployed the network and cluster determination theories.

Findings

The results enabled the identification and the classification of various theoretical perspectives on the domain of family firms into four main approaches: (1) family business behaviour; (2) family versus non-family CEOs; (3) business family performance; and (4) business family and people.

Originality/value

This study identifies, explores, analyses and summarises the main themes, contributing towards deepening the literature through the means of identifying the priority areas in relation to Asian family businesses able to guarantee international standards of excellence in comparison with their respective competitors.
