Mapping the Intellectual Structure of Supply Chain Management

Fu-Jin Hu and Jen-Hwa Kuo

Abstract—To explore the intellectual structure of supply chain management research in the last twelve years, this study identified the most important publications and the most influential scholars as well as the correlations among these scholar’s publications. In this study, bibliometric, social network, and Tag Cloud Analysis techniques are used to investigate the intellectual pillars of the supply chain management literature. By analyzing 38,806 citations of 999 articles published in SSCI journal in supply chain management area between 2001 and 2012, this study maps a knowledge network of supply chain management studies. The results of the mapping can help identify the research direction of supply chain management research and provide a valuable tool for researchers to access the literature in this area.

Index Terms—Supply chain management, bibliometric, tag cloud analysis, diffusion innovation.
