Indexed scientific article by Dr. Fondevila et altri on collaborative economics

“Experimental Study on the Utility and Future of Collaborative Consumption Platforms Offering Tourism Related Services” is the indexed scientific article of Dr. Joan Francesc Fondevila Gascón, Dr. Gaspar Berbel and Dr. Mònica Muñoz González in Future Internet, 11 (80) (doi : 10.3390 / fi11030080; https://www.mdpi.com/1999-5903/11/3/80/pdf) (ISSN: 19995903).

The article analyzes, through experimental methodology and quantitative techniques, the use of tourism collaborative economy platforms (Airbnb, Blablacar, Eatwith, Trip4Real). The analysis demonstrates a factorial structure that validates the model. The results indicate a greater interest in the use of Trip4Real over BlaBlaCar, as well as a higher rate of intention on the part of the participants in the experimental group (those to whom the platform was presented together with a need or indicated objective) in being a provider and offer Eatwith services over the control group (those to whom the platform was presented without a task or need to comply).

The article is the result of the task of the Research Group on Digital Journalism and Marketing and Broadband and the Research Group on Innovative Monetization Systems of Digital Journalism, Marketing and Tourism (SIMPED), of CECABLE, the Escola Universitària Mediterrani de la Universitat of Girona, CESINE, Pompeu Fabra University, Blanquerna-Ramon Llull University, Euncet-UPC, UOC, EAE Business School and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, ​​of which Dr. Joan Francesc Fondevila Gascón is a principal investigator.
