Abstract:
Abstract This study provides an overview of the knowledge management
literature from 1980 through 2014. We employ bibliometric and text
mining analyses on a sample of 500 most cited articles to examine the
impact of factors such as number of authors, references, pages, and
keywords on the number of citations that they received. We also
investigate major trends in knowledge management literature including
the contribution of different countries, variations across publication
years, and identifying active research areas and major journal outlets.
Our study serves as a resource for future studies by shedding light on
how trends in knowledge management research have evolved over time and
demonstrating the characteristics of the most cited articles in this
literature. Specifically, our results reveal that the most cited
articles are from United States and United Kingdom. The most prolific
year in terms of the number of published articles is 2009 and in terms
of the number of citations is 2012. We also found a positive
relationship between the number of publications’ keywords, references,
and pages and the number of citations that they have received. Finally,
the Journal of Knowledge Management has the largest share in publishing
the most cited articles in this field.
