Abstract

This study reviews the trend of top-cited risk publications in the field of agricultural economics. The publication data are downloaded from the database of Science Citation Index (SCI) Web of Science. Citation analysis and statistical methods are used for nominating and exploring the bibliometric dimensions of the top-cited articles such as top authors, journals, trends of publication and the performance of institutes and countries. The results display a negative impact of collaboration of authors and countries on citation, which contradicts the trends in the other fields of study. The results provide a better understanding of trends in agricultural risk and agricultural economics research, and indicate the direction for future studies.

Keywords: Risk, Production Risk, Bibliometric analysis, Citation analysis, Agricultural Risk
