Specifically, the number of documents on the importance of tourism in the education, has been growing in the last years, mainly since 2005 until our days. The country which research mostly about this topic is United States, followed by Austria and in the third place United Kingdom. Spain ranks sixth in the study of these variables. The knowledge areas that have been realized more publications are Social Sciences with 50,56 %, Business and Enterprise with 39,84 % of whole production, respectively.
