Journal Title: Webology - Year 2019, Vol 16, Issue 2


Many studies around the world in the field of scientometrics and research trends analysis are carried out using bibliometric techniques to analyze a specific research area or a special journal. The purpose of this bibliometric study was to investigate the research trends of the journal of Sport Management Review based on the Web of Science (WoS) citation database in the period 2011-2018. The findings of this bibliometric study can be useful for sport researchers and the editorial board of the above-mentioned journal. The results of this study showed that countries such as the United States of America and Australia, and universities such as Griffith University and Deakin University have the highest number of publications in the journal of Sport Management Review. Moreover, D.C. Funk and S. Fairley are the most prolific authors. Also, based on the journal evaluation criteria of Web of Science, the Impact Factor of Sport Management Review has grown steadily over the years. The co-occurrence map based on the author-supplied keywords of the papers published in SMR indicates that the keywords sport, marketing, intercollegiate athletics, sport development, sponsorship, sport management, sport policy, social media, professional sport, and sport marketing were the most co-occurrences and the hot topics in the journal of SMR. The current bibliometric study indicates the growing importance of international journal of SMR in terms of research and citation impacts.
