بررسی روندهای نوظهور تحقیق COVID-19 در زمینه تجارت و مدیریت: رویکرد تجزیه و تحلیل کتاب سنجی-2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has been labeled as a black swan event that caused a ripple eﬀect on every aspect of human life. Despite the short time span of the pandemic—only four and half months so far—a rather large volume of research pertaining to COVID-19 has been published (107 articles indexed in Scopus and the Web of Science). This article presents the ﬁndings of a bibliometric study of COVID-19 literature in the business and management domain to identify current areas of research and propose a way forward. The analysis of the published literature identiﬁed four main research themes and 18 sub-themes. The ﬁndings and propositions of this study suggest that COVID-19 will be the catalyst of several long- and short-term policy changes and requires the theoretical and empirical attention of researchers. The oﬀered propositions will act as a roadmap to potential research opportunities.
