- 214 Downloads
Twenty-five years ago, in 1992, a journal named Group Decision and Negotiation was established in association with the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences with the vision of promoting theoretical and empirical research, real-world applications and case studies on group decision and negotiation processes. To celebrate its 25 years of continuous and outstanding contributions, this study aims to develop a bibliometric analysis of the publications of the journal between 1992 and 2016. The Web of Science Core Collection database is used to identify the leading trends of the journal in terms of impacts, topics, authors, universities and countries. Moreover, it utilizes the visualization of similarities viewer software to analyze the bibliographic couplings, co-citations, citations, co-authorships and co-occurrences of keywords.
