Resumen


El turismo es uno de los principales motores de la economía cubana y desempeña un papel protagonista en el panorama turístico internacional, por ello es notoria la necesidad de analizar las investigaciones que los académicos e instituciones de este país realizan en el ámbito turístico. Debido al amplio periodo analizado (2006-2011) y la extensión del análisis sobre la difusión de la investigación de turismo en Cuba, se decidió publicar la investigación en dos partes. El presente artículo es la continuación del primero, en el que se realiza un análisis general de la evolución de la situación actual del turismo en Cuba y de sus instituciones líderes y en esta segunda parte se analizan los autores más productivos, el ámbito geográfico de la aplicación de las investigaciones, el número de coautores medio por trabajo y el número de citas recibidas. Finalmente, se establecen una serie de conclusiones en relación a la situación actual de la investigación turística en Cuba.
