Trending and Mapping the Intellectual Structure of Social Behavior Studies: A Study of the Social Behavior and Personality Journal
Abstract:Our aim in this research was to map the intellectual structure of social behavior studies in the past 27 years, by comparing works from two specific periods – 1982-1995 and 1996-2008. A model of an invisible network of knowledge was used in this study to identify the most important studies, the most influential scholars, and the correlations among these publications. The results of this research help in perceiving the network that records the academic movement of social behavior, and will facilitate access for researchers to the literature in this field.
