Abstract

Radio
frequency identification (RFID) is one of the most influential
technologies of the twenty-first century. Today, RFID technology is
being applied in a wide array of disciplines in science research and
industrial projects. The significant impact of RFID is clearly visible
by the rate of academic publications in the last few years. This article
surveys the literature to evaluate the trend of RFID technology
development based on academic publications from 2001 to 2014. Both
bibliometric and content analyses are applied to examine this topic in
SCI-Index and SSCI-Index documents. Based on the bibliometric technique,
all 5159 existing RFID documents are investigated and several important
factors are reviewed, including contributions by country,
organizations, funding agencies, journal title, authors, research area
and Web of Science category. Moreover, content analysis is applied to
the top 100 most cited documents and based on their contents, these top
100 documents are classified into four different categories with each
category divided in several sub-categories. This research aims to
identify the best source of the most cited RFID papers and to provide a
comprehensive road map for the future research and development in the
field of RFID technology in both academic and industrial settings. Six
key findings from this review are (1) the experimental method is the
most popular research methodology, (2) RFID research has been a hot area
of investigation but will branch out into related subset areas, (3)
South East Asia is positioned to dominate this research space, (4) the
focus of research up to now has been on technical issues rather than
business and management issues, (5) research on RFID application domains
will spread beyond supply chain and health care to a number of
different areas, and (6) more research will be related to policy issues
such as security and privacy.
