Objective

To study research trend in the field of HRM using co-


occurrence analysis of the research articles published in
the top HR related journals during last 12 year i.e. 2005-
2016
ETBL 2016, ISB Mohali

Co-occurrence Analysis
Co-occurrence matrices, such as co-citation, co-word,
and co-link matrices, provide us with useful data for
mapping and understanding the structures in the
underlying document sets.
Co- occurrence analysis is similar to co-word analysis
where the number of co-occurrence of two keywords is
the number of publication where both the keyword
appears together.
The co-word analysis has the potential of effectively
revealing the patterns and trends in a specific discipline.
(Ding et al. 2001).

Data Sources and tools


The records for the research articles were derived from the Web of
Science, Social Science Citation Index

Year wise data was downloaded for each journal

Document type Article was selected to increase the validity and


reliability of the study, as it is a certified knowledge generated by
scientific journals that apply a critical review process (Ramos-Rodriguez
