Project Management Research in IJPM and PMJ: A Bibliometric Analysis

Yu-Wen Huang

Abstract— This study aims to assess the current development and trends of studies on project management through bibliometric analysis. To achieve this goal, we reviewed the 1209 papers published during the period spanning 2008–2017 in the field’s two top journals: the International Journal of Project Management and Project Management Journal. The articles were downloaded from Web of Science, and quantitative analysis was conducted to find out which authors published the most frequently, and from which countries the most research originated. We also sought out the most cited references using CiteSpace, a visualization analysis tool. Finally, the hottest trends and most popular topics of the last ten years were examined to provide guidance for researchers in the field of project management.

Index Terms— Project management research, bibliometric analysis, visual analysis, mapping knowledge domains.
