          Abstract

          While scholarly inquiry into Airbnb has experienced an exponential growth in the tourism literature, the role of the environmental stimuli of Airbnb experiences in creating consumer enjoyment is underexplored. Adopting the Mehrabian-Russell model, this study proposes a conceptual framework to investigate the linkages between three well-documented experiential attributes of Airbnb accommodations, perceived enjoyment, and repurchase intention. The results of two separate empirical studies with recent Airbnb users consistently show significant influences of authenticity and home benefits on perceived enjoyment, which subsequently drive repurchase intention, while social interaction was not found significant. The results of the model comparison and mediation analysis also converge across the two studies, providing strong support for the mediating role of perceived enjoyment as a mechanism that underlies the relationships between the environmental stimuli and repurchase intention. The findings provide important insights into what Airbnb attributes contribute to positive emotional responses and subsequently forming favorable behavioral consequences.

          Common method biases in behavioral research: A critical review of the literature and recommended remedies.

          Interest in the problem of method biases has a long history in the behavioral sciences. Despite this, a comprehensive summary of the potential sources of method biases and how to control for them does not exist. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to examine the extent to which method biases influence behavioral research results, identify potential sources of method biases, discuss the cognitive processes through which method biases influence responses to measures, evaluate the many different procedural and statistical techniques that can be used to control method biases, and provide recommendations for how to select appropriate procedural and statistical remedies for different types of research settings.
