 Linda Canina Named Editor of Cornell Hotel and
Restaurant Administration Quarterly

Ithaca, NY, June 26, 2006 – Linda Canina has been named the new editor of the Cornell Hotel and Restaurant Administration Quarterly, the award-winning academic journal published by The Center for Hospitality Research at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration. Effective July 1, Canina will succeed Professor Michael Sturman, who has completed his three-year term in the position. 

“Linda Canina is an extremely talented researcher, and a skilled writer and reviewer of practitioner based research which makes her an ideal choice to lead the Cornell Quarterly,” said Cathy Enz, associate dean for Industry Research and Affairs at the School. “She takes over a publication that is among the best of its kind, thanks in large part to the able stewardship shown by Michael Sturman over the last three years.”

Canina is an associate professor in the Cornell Hotel School’s Finance, Accounting, and Real Estate department. Her primary research focuses on asset pricing and valuation. Her recent publications include Agglomeration Effects and Strategic Orientations: Evidence from the U.S. Lodging Industry in the Academy of Management Journal. 

Canina’s other work has appeared in the Journal of Finance , Review of Financial Studies, Financial Management, the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Research, and the Cornell Hotel and Restaurant Administration Quarterly. Canina holds Ph.D. and Masters degrees from New York University and an undergraduate degree from the University of Vermont. 

The Cornell Quarterly, published for 47 years, presents practical research for leaders in the hospitality industry. Readers are senior executives and managers in the travel, tourism, gaming, hotel, airline and restaurant management businesses, as well as faculty from leading universities. 

In 2004 the Quarterly won its second Emerald Golden Page Award for publishing distinctive research on the hospitality industry. The award is presented annually by Emerald Management Reviews, a UK-based publisher specializing in management issues, to a select group of management periodicals that are determined by industry and academic experts to have consistently delivered excellent articles over a calendar year. The Cornell Quarterly was chosen for its “practical usability of research.”

The Cornell University School of Hotel Administration is shaping the global knowledge base for hospitality management through leadership in education, research and industry advancement. The School provides management instruction in the full range of hospitality disciplines, educating the next generation of leaders in the world's largest industry. Founded in 1922 as the nation's first collegiate course of study in hospitality management, the Cornell Hotel School is recognized as the world leader in its field. For more information, visit
