Li, Q.; Guo, X., and Zhang, L., 2020. Bibliometric analysis of water resource management. In: Hu, C. and Cai, M. (eds.), Geo-informatics and Oceanography. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 105, pp. 210–214. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.
Based on the Web of Science database, this paper systematically reveals a general trend of publication, country or region, and organization distribution; source publication distribution; frequently cited papers; co-occurring keywords; and time zone analysis of keywords in the field of water resource management (WRM) from multiple perspectives by using bibliometric analysis and visualization software. A corresponding visualization knowledge graph is obtained that clearly and intuitively shows the current situation and research hot spots of WRM research from a specific perspective. The results show that in the past 21 years, research in WRM has been increasing continuously. China's research on WRM is in the leading position, and “water resource management,” “management,” and “integrated water resource management” are the top 3 high-frequency keywords. These findings provide a knowledge basis for further research on WRM.
