Background and aim: The main purpose of the current paper is the Scientometric analysis of scientific productions in sports science based on the articles indexed in the Web of Science during the years 2012-2022.
Materials and methods: In terms of type and nature, the current research is an applied one in which scientific techniques and indicators are used. The statistical population of this research includes all the articles indexed in Web of Science in the 10-year period of 2012-2022 in sports sciences. VOSviewer software was used to draw the co-authorship network of organizations, the density map of countries and the co-occurrence of words.
Findings: The results stated that the highest and lowest scientific productions in the focused area were in 2021 and 2012, respectively. According to the data obtained from the VOSviewer software, there are 36 nodes and 335 links in the map. The topics of "higher education", "sports science", "performance", and "physical training" were identified as the topic clusters of the field based on the clustering of high-frequency words. The countries of Spain and Australia have more density in articles than Italy, Germany, Turkey and republic of China (p<0.01). The cluster analysis of the co-authorship network of countries in the field of sports sciences states that the network consists of 5 distinct clusters.
Conclusion: The convergence of various words such as "exercise", "education" and "sports" in drawing the scientific map illustrates the importance and necessity of the awareness in researchers interested in the topic, who can introduce the best author, country and organizations and also draw a proper picture and insight of the process and content of this field.
