Background and aim: Scientific mapping is very important to identify scientific collaborations in different subject areas. The aim of this study was to investigate and draw a scientific map of the outputs of the field of economics among the D8 member countries through the word co-occurrence analysis in the Web of Science (WoS).
Materials and methods: This applied descriptive was conducted using a scientometric approach. The research population included 17,598 articles in the field of economics among the D8 member countries, indexed in the WoS during 2010-2019. To analyze the research data, SPSS 22 was used. Moreover, UCINET, Netdraw and VOSviewer were utilized to draw and analyze the co-authorship network of scientific outputs.
Findings: The process of scientific outputs in the field of economics has a growing trend. Furthermore, Turkey and Malaysia had the most output in this field. Among the keywords, “economic growth” with 502 repetitions had the highest frequency, and “panel data” and “foreign direct investment” with 241 and 170 frequencies were in the second and third ranks, respectively. Based on the WoS data, it was found that the scientific structure of the economics of the D8 member countries consisted of seven main thematic clusters, including economic growth outlook, financial policies and information targeting, business education and globalization, financial disintegration, organizational structure of investment companies, entrepreneurship, commitment and organizational culture.
Conclusion: The analysis of the clusters obtained in this study has shown that although researchers have paid attention to recent developments in the field of economics, most of their approach is to study the general and conventional principles of this field.
Keywords: Economics, Co-words, Scientific map, D8 countries
