The Rise of “Trade Liberalization”: Bibliometric Analysis of Trade Liberalization Study
scientific trends and examine the patterns in the intellectual research
published on trade liberalization over a period of 35 years (1980-2015).
The data were collected from a leading indexing and abstracting
database Thomson Reuters Web of Science. The Kruskal-Walis test, ANOVA
and Pearson’s correlation were employed in analyzing the retrieved data.
Based on the citation trend of first 100 highly cited published
articles with the least number of authors are found to have received the
highest number of citations. Our result shows that there is actual
statistical significance (p˂ 0.001) between the total citations
attracted by articles published by 1 author and those published by 3 and
4 authors. The word trade liberalization has become dominant and
consistent in the field of the study. These research trend and interest
could provide focus to researchers for future research.
