Abstract

This research explores how ‘resilience’ has evolved as a scientific/research topic in a wide range of fields (from psychiatry and psychology to environmental sciences, biochemistry and even engineering) by using Web of Science (WoS) data from 1975 to 2018; the final database includes over 19,000 articles, books and book chapters, conference proceedings, extended abstracts, editorials, letters, reviews and other forms of scientific communication which included the key term (resilience) in their title.

The data is analyzed according to multiple criteria, such as: (a) the WoS category (scientific domain) in which the research was published; (b) the publication year; (c) document types; (d) the home organization of the authors; (e) funding agencies; (f) the source titles (in the case of articles, books and meetings); (g) the country of the authors, and (h) the language of the publication. Although this exploratory research cannot be regarded as a meta-analysis, the results are useful not only for understanding the multiple and complicated relationships between the aforementioned elements, but also for highlighting the complexity, ubiquity and multiple roles resilience, as a concept, has received in academic literature.

Keywords: resilience, research, academic publications, descriptive/exploratory analysis
